    Hi AG,

    AdBlock asks for permission to access your browsing data so it can work on all tabs in your browser. We don't access or save your personal data or any other information other than the minimum required to make the extension work.

    You can opt in to the collection of anonymous filter list usage data that helps us improve AdBlock. This is turned off by default.

    Please see the following Knowledge Base articles for details:
