Frequently Asked Questions
Who is behind AdBlock?
"We" are Michael Gundlach and my wife Katie. I quit my job to build AdBlock, and we rely entirely on your support for AdBlock's maintenance and development. These days I am paying a few people to help me carry the load, and your payment supports them too. I'm enormously proud of what I've built, I'm thankful for every user, and I take your feedback to heart with every new release of AdBlock. As both the proud creator and a regular user of AdBlock, I'm committed to ensuring it remains our best tool for filtering content on the web.
I heard you were asking big companies to pay you to show their ads?!
Nope, that's what some other ad blockers are doing, and we're as unimpressed as you are. AdBlock is 100% user-supported, does not have a list of companies that get preferential treatment, and does not ask or allow companies to pay us to show you ads. With AdBlock, you are the one in control of what ads, if any, you want to see - not the advertisers.
What's in a name?
AdBlock was inspired by an extension created long ago for the older Firefox web browser called "Adblock Plus" (which was in turn named after a yet older Firefox "Adblock" project; yes, it's confusing), but it's not related to those. You've come to the right place to get AdBlock.
Is my information safe?
Your browser may require AdBlock to ask for permission to access your browsing data so it works on all tabs in your browser. AdBlock won't save or retrieve your personal browsing habits or information for any reason beyond what is required to make it work. AdBlock is entirely supported by voluntary donations from users like you, and collects no information for advertising or promotional purposes.
