As a Chrome user, it’s no wonder you want to stop ads from popping up as you browse the web. Ads plague the internet and come in all shapes and sizes. From pop-ups to on-page ads to cookie notices – there are plenty of distractions calling your attention away from the content you actually want to see.

Thankfully, you don’t have to live with these distractions if you don’t want to. With Chrome’s own pop-up blocking settings and an ad blocker like Adblock Plus, you’ll be browsing the web ad-free in no time.

  2. Click Settings.

  3. On the left sidebar, click Privacy and security > Site settings.
  4. Scroll down the page and click on Pop-ups and redirects.
  5. Choose the option, Don’t allow sites to send pop-ups or use redirects.

    To sum it up, it’s easy to stop ads in Google Chrome with an ad blocker like Adblock Plus for Chrome. Adblock Plus removes ads so that you can have the browsing experience you want to have – not the one advertisers want you to.
