After deciding to install an extension to block ads while browsing the Internet (often referred to as AdBlock, although it would be more correct to use “adblocker”), you got to discuss your choice with your best friend, who convinced you to get back on your feet.
You have realized that blocking advertising banners cancels out the earnings of all those who create and offer content for free on the Web. Therefore, it is worth “rewarding” all those websites on which advertising is present but still not fully invasive regarding internet users. In addition, there are now many sites that prevent access to their content if they detect the use of an ad blocker.
If things are exactly as I described them and you would like to know how to turn off Adblock, let me give you all the indications to succeed. In the following few paragraphs of this guide, you will find the walkthrough to disable extensions that prevent the display of advertisements that you have added to your browser. Also, if you wish, you will also find instructions to remove these extensions permanently. Have a good read!
How to disable AdBlock on PC
The procedure for disabling an AdBlock is quick and easy, no matter what extension you use to block ads. In general, all you have to do is access the browser settings on which you installed the adblocker and press on the option to turn it off totally. Alternatively, you can choose to disable adblocking for a specific website. How to do it? Let me explain it to you!
How to disable AdBlock on Chrome
If you intend to turn off AdBlock on Chrome, start the browser in question, click the three dots icon in the upper right, select the More tools option from the menu that opens, and press on the Extensions item.
On the new screen that appears, locate the extension you use to block ads and move the ad lever from ON to OFF, to turn it off completely. If you wish, you can also delete it by clicking the Remove button twice in a row. In that regard, you may be helpful with my guide on how to delete Chrome extensions.
If, on the other hand, you intend to deactivate Adblock for the site, all you have to do is access a website page of your interest, click on the extension icon you use for adblocking and press on the option to disable it on all pages of the site in question.
To better understand, let’s take a practical example by taking AdBlockas as a reference, one of the most popular extensions to prevent the display of advertising banners. If so, connect to the website you intend to exclude from ad blocking, press on the AdBlock icon, located at the top right near the address bar, and click on the option you want to exclude from blockage to allow advertising on all pages of the website in question only once or indefinitely.
Alternatively, press the AdBlock icon and then on the gear wheel to access the extension’s settings in question; choose the Customize option in the left sidebar and locate the Stop blocking advertising section.
Now, press the Show advertising on a page or domain option, enter the URL of the site you intend to disable adblocking and click the OK button to add the site in question to the list of websites you want to view an advertisement.
How to disable AdBlock on Edge
If you’ve installed an extension to block ads on Edge, the Microsoft browser that took over from Internet Explorer, and now you’d like to turn it off, all you have to do is access the program add-ons section and proceed from there.
Click, then, on the icon of the three dots located in the upper right part in the browser window, select the Extensions item from the menu that appears; in the new screen displayed, find the box related to the extension you use for blocking advertisements.
Now, move the letter for the extension in question from ON to OFF to turn it off and allow banner ads to be displayed again on sites that have them. Also, if you want to delete this extension permanently, click on the Remove entry twice in a row, and you’re done.
Just as I indicated to you in the lines to turn off ad blocking on Chrome, even on Edge, you can advertise on individual websites without necessarily turning off your adblocker. To do this, you can access the extension settings used to block ads, locate the section to add an exception and enter the URL of the site you’re interested in.
Alternatively, suppose the extension you’re using allows it. In that case, you can link to the website on which you want to enable ads, click on the extension icon that appears at the top right near the address bar, and press the button to allow advertising.
How to disable adblock on Internet Explorer
To disable Adblock on Internet Explorer, start the browser in question, click the gear wheel icon at the top right of the browser window, select the Add-in Manager option from the menu that opens, and press on the Toolbars and Extensions item.
Now, right-click the ad blocker extension you want to turn off and choose the Disable option from the menu that appears. If you wish, you can also permanently delete the attachment in question by clicking the Remove button from the same screen.
Suppose there is no option to cancel the extension you use to block advertisements. In that case, the deletion must be done through the control panel for the “common” applications, as I also explained to you in my article on uninstalling a program.
How to disable adblock on Firefox
To disable AdBlock on Firefox, click the ☰ button located at the top right of the browser window, select the Add-ins and Themes item from the menu that opens, and on the new screen that appears, make sure you’ve chosen the Extensions tab.
At this point, locate the Active section and move the lever related to the extension you use to block ads from ON to OFF, turn it off and allow advertising to be displayed again. By pressing the three dots icon for the extension in question and choosing the Remove option from the open menu, you can also permanently clear.
If, on the other hand, you prefer to disable the blocking of advertisements only on specific sites, again you have to connect to the area of your interest, click on the extension icon for blocking advertisements, and press on the button to allow advertisements exclusively on the site in question.
How to disable adblock on OperaOpera
Use OperaOpera to surf the Internet. You’ll probably already know that the browser in question integrates an ad-blocking system without having to install third-party extensions, which you can manage by accessing the Opera Extensions section.
If you want to advertise on OperaOpera, start the browser in question and press the Extensions option (the box icon)placed in the sidebar on the left. If you don’t see this option, click the three dots icon, locate the Work Tools section, and press the Extensions entry.
At this point, locate Opera’sOpera’s Advertising Block box and click on its Disable button, to allow all advertisements. By pressing options and exception handling items instead and clicking the Add button, you can manually enter the URL of a specific website on which you want to view ads.
What do you say? Have you also installed a third-party extension to block advertising? In that case, you need to know that the directions I have just provided to you are valid for any extensions installed on OperaOpera. The only difference is that you can also make permanently clear the extension in question by pressing on the X button and selecting the Remove options.
How to disable adblock on Safari
To disable Adblock on Safari, start the browser in question, click the Safari item located in the menu bar, and choose the Preferences option from the menu that opens.
Select the Extensions tab and remove the checkmark next to the extension you use to block ads. On the same screen, if you wish, you can also uninstall the extension in question by clicking on its Uninstall button: at this point, press the Show in Finder option and manually delete the attachment as if it were a “normal” application. In this regard, you may be helpful with my guide on uninstalling a Mac program.
Alternatively, you can also pause ad blocking by acting directly from your extension. To do this, click its icon located near the address bar and select the option to turn off ad blocking temporarily. In the same way, you can also display advertising banners on a specific website, selecting the option to allow advertisements.
To better understand, let’s take a practical example by still taking AdBlock as a reference. To turn off ad blocking, click the AdBlock icon and select the Pause option from the menu that appears, while by choosing the Show ads item on this page /Show ads on this site, you can allow ads on a specific page or on all pages of the site to which you have linked.
How to disable adblock on Android
What do you say? Do you want to disable adblock on Android? In that case, all you have to do is launch the application that you downloaded to block ads and press on the option to turn it off totally. Alternatively, since most of these applications integrate their browser or work exclusively with a specific browser, you can launch the browser and select the option to allow banner ads.
For example, if you installed the AdBlock app that works with Samsung Internet Browser, start the latter, press the ☰ button placed in the menu below, and select the Ad Blocks option. On the new screen displayed, move the lever next to the AdBlock for Samsung Internet entry from ON to OFF, and you’re done.
If, on the other hand, you want to allow advertising on a specific website, start the AdBlock app directly, tap on the Sites with the allowed ads option, and press the + button. Then enter the URL of your interest in the Enter the website URL field and tap on the OK button to save the changes and display advertising banners on the site in question.
How to disable adblock on iPhone/iPad
If you have an iPhone/iPad and have installed an application that allows you to block advertisements on Safari, all you need to do to disable this option is access iOS/iPadOS settings and select the option for content blocking.
In the first case, tap on the gear wheel icon to access the iOS/iPadOS Settings, press on the Safari option, and select the Content Block entry. On the new screen that appears, move the lever for the application you use to block ads from ON to OFF, and you’re done.
Instead, to allow ads on a single website, start Safari and connect to the site of your interest. After that, press option A A located in the address bar and select the Disable content blocks item from the menu that appears.
What do you say? Are you using an app to block advertising on a browser other than Safari? All you have to do is disable the option to block ads and save changes. In that case, you can proceed from your browser settings or app settings. If you wish, you can also uninstall the app in question: in that regard, my guide on how to uninstall iPhone apps may help you.
