User Customization for Inbuilt Ad-Blocker & addition of Privacy safeguards.

  • Hello there!

    It has come to our consistent notice that in-built Ad-Blocker is not proving effective against blocking Ads served by Google & similarly, it is not providing sufficient safeguards against Privacy-related incursions such as -- snooping by Trackers..etc.

    Therefore, if for some reason there does exist a "Whitelist" for Ads hidden from Users, allow us to "Customize" our preferences by hosting a suitable option to serve the purpose. I would like to eradicate the "Whitelist"(if there exists one!)

    Lastly, inbuilt Ad-blocker must be enriched further to serve a --"One Stop solution" to cater to all Privacy related requirements as well!

    Why should one still be making use of Miscellaneous extensions such as----Disconnect, Ghostery..etc. to fortify the Privacy front?

    Come up with advanced filtering rules to establish your In-built Ad-blocker as a "One Stop Solution" for all!

    Thank you.

    Have you checked settings? You will find a option to add or remove exceptions to the adblocker.

    Also in Opera 39,currently in beta stage, user can add its own block list.

    It's just an adblocker, something to soeed up the navigation and not to protect privacy.

    For privacy protection you can use the VPN.
