Using AdBlock in incognito or private mode

In Safari and Firefox, private mode doesn't disable extensions, so there's nothing special you need to do to use AdBlock in private mode. In Chrome and Microsoft Edge, however, extensions don't run in private or incognito mode by default. You need to enable them. To make AdBlock work in private or incognito mode:


  1. Type chrome://extensions in the address bar.
  2. Under AdBlock in the extensions list, click Details.
  3. Scroll down and click the toggle switch next to Allow in incognito.

Microsoft Edge

  1. Click the More (...) button and select Extensions.
  2. Point to the AdBlock button and select the Settings cog.
  3. Select Allow for inPrivate browsing.
