Ad Filtering: How It Works & How to Turn It On

Jan 13, 2022

Ad-filtering allows Bye Bye Ads users to avoid the ads they don’t wish to see by blocking them or enabling ads to be seen on certain websites of their choice. 

How does ad filtering work?

Every ad you view on the web is further classified according to filter lists such as malware ads, privacy ads, and more. Every time you find a new ad on the Internet, the extension blocks it by default, and its filter lists are updated. Your ad filters can also be customized in case you wish to view or block a particular category of ads.

How do I turn on ad filtering?

A user may visit a site and notice that an ad isn’t displayed. Instead of seeing ads, all they see is a message telling them that their ad blocking software needs to be disabled. In such cases, you can use ad filtering to unblock ads and access the content on these favorite sites. You can also use ad filtering to stop seeing certain ads. Changing your ad filtering settings on Bye Bye Ads is very convenient. Follow the steps below:

  • Head to your toolbar and click the Bye Bye Ads widget.
  • Select the Settings menu.
  • Choose the ‘On’ or ‘Off’ option against individual filter lists in order for the sites to be customized according to the way you want to view/block ads.
