It has been reported in the international media that AdBlock was purchased by an anonymous buyer. Who or what now owns AdBlock?

If you do not wish to answer, why should end users continue to trust a privacy extension that is not transparent?

    Hi Mitch,

    We understand your frustration. Truly. We wish we could share this information with you. However, the buyer wishes to remain anonymous and we are legally obligated not to reveal their identity, or any other details of the purchase.

    We can tell you that our desire to make the web a better place by getting rid of evil advertising has not changed. We still do not, and never will, accept money to show ads that are simply unacceptable. We hope you continue to trust us, but when you get right down to it, it's your call and no one else's, and we think that's pretty much the way it ought to be.
