Why doesn't ad block actually block ads?

  • Or why is it that I find google ads on every site I visit?

    Because google.com is white-listed so ads from Google will not be blocked?

    Are you telling me all these sites are whitelisted?

    No, but they may contain ads from white-listed pages/domains.

  • Nice quoting.

    Anyway, for everyone sick and tired of ads coming through in Opera for Android, just switch to Opera mini. I've never tried it before but apparently all ads get blocked with it, including the annoying google ads.

  • The simple thing would be to allow extensions from opera desktop to be used on opers mobile. Then we could use 3rd party adblock. They're both chrome-based, so not sure why desktop allows extensions/addons/whatever, and opera mobile does not

    I agree. There is a browser for android called yandex browser that is chromium based and allows extensions to be installed. They even use the opera extensions site as their extensions web store, although you can also install extensions from the chrome web store as well. Why opera doesn't do it as well is beyond me.

  • It would be great to add custom filters for Opera adblock

  • Same problem here. Google Ads on all sites I visit.

  • how do I disable adblock temporarily. I need to access some site with no adblock on my browser..

    Data saving > turn off ad blocking.

    Disable Google from exeptions, if Opera for Android has that option and / or Use F-Droid and AdAway.

    I don't remember If needs Root.

    There is no exception option on Android app.

    Yes, there is no exceptions option...
    I've just installed on Memu to test it and also have discovered features in ODesktop not in OAndroid and features in OAndroid not in ODesktop... ¿?

    As haven't seen any ad in OperaApp nor in OMini, (I use mod Hosts file) probably using AdAway (Hosts file soft installer) will block ads also in Opera, it works for block ads in whole system.

    If it's not a problem with Opera servers as mentioned above.
