2. Reduced Data Usage

Websites consume less data when those pesky ads aren’t allowed to load. How much less data? Test results showed that blocking ads reduced data usage by around 19%.

3. Protection Against Tracking Cookies

Have you noticed websites prompting you to accept their “cookie policy”? Some of these cookies can track your online activity, that's why it sometimes feels like ads are following you around the Internet. Ad Stopper blocks all of these tracking cookies.

Malicious advertising, also referred to as “malvertising,” accounts for over 1% of all online ad content. With Ad Stopper installed, you can rest easy, knowing that in blocking all ads, you’re keeping yourself safe from malvertising and phishing sites that might steal your personal information.

5. Finally, Peace of Mind
