uBlock Ori­gin

BEST TOOL FOR BLOCK­ING ADS

APC Australia - - Super Guide » Apps & Services For Privacy - GITHUB.COM/GORHILL/UBLOCK

Avail­able as an add-on for most pop­u­lar browsers, uBlock does a great job of fil­ter­ing out the ads from most sites, in­clud­ing video stream­ing sites like Twitch and YouTube. It’s free and open source, and doesn’t have some of the more ques­tion­able busi­ness prac­tices of some of its com­peti­tors.

Rec­om­mended al­ter­na­tive: Ad­guard ( ad­guard.com) is a DNS-based fil­ter­ing tool. For Win­dows, we’d just use a browser-based so­lu­tion like uBlock Ori­gin, but on mo­biles Ad­Guard is great, even when us­ing a VPN cheat to block ads found in apps.
