What do I do if a site forces me to disable AdBlock?

While using AdBlock, you may occasionally run into a website that requires you to disable your ad blocker before accessing the content.

AdBlock makes it simple to pause or allowlist any site you visit so that you can access the content you're looking for.

What about mobile devices?

The suggestions in this article work on your computer. If you use AdBlock on a mobile device, you can pause AdBlock to stop blocking ads while you're on a site. If you use an iPhone or iPad, you can also allowlist sites.

How to Pause AdBlock
Click the AdBlock button in the upper right-hand corner of your browser toolbar and select either Pause on this site or Pause AdBlock, depending on which browser you use. Refresh the page.

Note: If you selected Pause on this site, AdBlock will automatically start blocking ads again when you leave the site. Otherwise, click the AdBlock button and select Resume blocking ads when you're finished.

How to allow ads on a site
If the site is one you enjoy and visit frequently, you may want to allowlist it. Allowlisting tells AdBlock to always allow ads on that site. There are several ways to allowlist a site. Here is the quickest and easiest way:
  1. Click the AdBlock button in the browser toolbar and select Don't run on pages on this site.
  2. In the Don't run AdBlock on... window, click Exclude. The page reloads automatically.

If you change your mind later, click the AdBlock button and select Enable AdBlock on this page.

Note: While it's technically possible to block these anti-adblock notifications, we have chosen not to do so. You can read more about our philosophy here: Why doesn't AdBlock block anti-adblock walls?
