How does this work?

Hi, I just installed adblock and I’m wondering if there’s anything else I need to do. Will it work automatically, all the time?

    Hi Renee,

    AdBlock starts blocking ads automatically as soon as you install it!

    In some cases, such as if you want to allow ads on a particular site or if you need to view websites in a language other than English, then there's some tweaking you can do. Most of the time, however, you won't need to adjust AdBlock's optional settings.

    If you start seeing ads, however, please let us know! It might be adware or malware, or a site that's found a way around ad blocking.
