– "Don't you just love adverts? I love websites showing me millions of ads and tracking my online activities, It's just amazing," said no one ever. Stick around, and in the next few minutes, I will show you what ad blockers you need to help you fight back. Let's block these ads! But, whoa, hold up there partners! Before we move forward, if you could press on that
little like and subscribe button after you finish this
video, I'd appreciate that. Only if you enjoyed the
content though, and I'll check.
You're innocently browsing
through your favorite parts of the internet, you're
having so much fun watching your YouTube video channels,
and scrolling through your favorite Reddit threads, that you have totally
forgotten that ads exists, but they haven't forgotten about you. But there's a way to dodge a bullet here. That's right, I'm about to
show you how to block ads on Chrome, including video
ads, pop-ups and banners, found on YouTube, news
websites and social media, ads which might contain malware,
adware and even trackers. Now, there're three main
ad blockers you can use, AdBlock, Ghostery and uBlock Origin, all of which works great.
The first, AdBlock, has been online for over a decade already. And has been and still is the best ad blocker that web has to offer. It's got a simple, yet
dependable browser extension, which is great for all
around compatibility. Using this extension,
you can block all ads or block only specific ads. It's easy to customize what
exactly you wanna block. My next suggestion, Ghostery, is just as a bad-ass as the first one. This bad boy blocks ads and trackers, and boy, does it block them well. After playing around
with the settings a bit, by clicking a few opt-out buttons, Ghostery through really stands
out as a great ad blocking option for the modern internet market. The only issue seems to be, how much the company changes hands. Then we have uBlock Origin.
This is a user-friendly
option source blocker for Chrome, Firefox and Safari. It barely uses any memory
and effectively blocks any advertisements you run into. But perhaps, its best benefit
is its content filtering ability, that allows you to
choose to type of content it will hunt and remove from your screen. Bear in mind, some of these ad blockers do more than just block ads. They can also detect and stop trackers, just like the next type of
software I'm going to discuss. A VPN with a built-in ad blocker. One of the biggest advantages for me, is that a VPN also gives you access to geo-locked content and better prices. If these are your thing, then here are my top three
VPNs with built-in ad blocker. At (speaking foreign language) number one, is the King of VPNs itself, NordVPN.
Apart from NordVPN being one
of the highest quality VPNs in the market today, they
also produce their very own amazing ad blocker, CyberSec. CyberSec is great as it
doesn't only come free with NordVPN subscription,
but it's great at blocking annoying ads, has access to
a huge blacklist database, is supported in all platforms,
from Android through to iOS, and even protects against botnet control for an even safer browsing experience. The next VPN I'll recommend
is another big online name, Surfshark, the (indistinct) of the sharks. Now, if you've explored the VPN world, you'll probably already
familiar with this reliable VPN. Being in the same league as Nord, Surfshark is usually always mentioned as the next best VPN after Nord. Offering similar performance
across the board with speed, privacy and security,
Surfshark also has its own ad blocking software, CleanWeb.
CleanWeb as the name suggests, aims to give you a clean
browsing experience. Much like CyberSec, CleanWeb comes with
Surfshark subscription. But if you wanna try before you buy, no worries with Surfshark
30-day money back guarantee. And you can sign up, try it out, and if you don't like
it, get your money back. Then last but far from least, Windscribe. Offering a high quality VPN experience, keeping you private and safe online, a Windscribe subscription
includes R.O.B.E.R.T, a useful ad blocking tool. R.O.B.E.R.T describes itself, as a one-of-a-kind
customizable server-side domain and IP blocking tool.
And despite its claim that it
runs on magic and unicorns, I'm pretty sure it runs on algorithms and tight customizable options. This one-of-a-kind
customizable server-side domain and IP blocking tool,
is a really good option if ad blocking and custom
access rules are your bag. You can't really go wrong
with any of these VPNs or ad blockers. But here, we have two more
that you shouldn't use. uBlocker and Hola Ad Remover. So, uBlocker, unlike similarly
sounding uBlock Origin, this one you better avoid.
UBlocker, shows up as one of
the top rated ad blockers, if you try to search for it. But, if you take a closer look into it, you'll see what it truly is. Whenever you use it,
you will get redirected to sponsored sites, you
know, just like add do. So, I dunno, so much for an ad blocker. And Hola Ad Remover, well,
their app is entirely free.
Which if you know anything
about the internet, if the service is free,
then you're the product. Remember, they need to
make money somewhere. If you manage to keep clear
of those and others like them, you'll do fine. Now, one last thing. Ad blockers are switched on automatically, but sometimes it's good to pause them. If you wanna support your
favorite websites or content creators, it's always nice
to pause your ad blockers when on their page or
watching their content.
You know what I mean. Usually, I don't even skip
the ads on YouTube videos from my favorite creators. So, never again will you search Google using terms like,
Chrome, how to block ads, since now you know how. And on that amazing note, I'll
end this video right there. I'll be going through the comments looking for your experiences
with ad blockers, both the dreams and the nightmares. So if you have any ad blocking stories, free to get commenting. If you enjoy this video or
if you've learned anything, please drop a like and
don't forget to subscribe and press that bell to keep up-to-date with the latest VPN use and discounts, which you can find in the
description below, of course.
Thanks for watching, and
I'll see you on the next one. (upbeat music).
