What does "I can read and change all your data on the websites you visit" mean? Does it affect privacy and personal data?

I have had adblock and/or ABP for more than a year in various browsers, I supported the team, and I'm quite happy with it... I uninstalled chrome as it was giving me problems and installed it again. I am trying to reinstall adblock and I get a message alerting of that message above. Can you advice please?

    Hi Rocio,

    As described in our Knowledge Base, AdBlock is required to display this in order to be able to block ads on all tabs. It doesn't save or retrieve any private data beyond what is required to make it work.

    Our privacy policy is also available on

    Hope this clears any confusion!
