How to Block Ads in Google Chrome

Annoyed by all those ads on the internet? Hate those big, flashy pop up ads? Then read this article and find out how to block all those and much more!

Step 1: Go to the Google Chrome Extensions Website

Type in a search engine “Google Chrome Extensions” or just go here. https://chrome.google.com/extensions/?hl=en

Step 2: Install Adblock

Search “Adblock” in the search bar at the top. Click the option that says Adblock – from getadblock.com. Or just go here. https://chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/gighmmpiobklfepjocnamgkkbiglidom?hl=en. Click the Shiny Blue button that says “Install”. Now a window will show up asking you to confirm the installation. Click “Install” again to confirm the installation.

Step 3: Configure Adblock

To configure Adblock, click the 3 dots in the top right corner. Scroll down to “More Tools” and then click Extensions. Find Adblock in the list, and then click Options. The “General” tab has some general options you can configure to your liking. In the “Filters” tab, you can subscribe to filter lists. If in the US, the AdBlock custom filters and Easylist should be enabled. The “Customize” tab allows you to add specific filters to Adblock. You can filter out almost anything, but for now just leave the custom filters blank.

That is all there is to it! Enjoy your ad-free web browsing!
