Key notes

  • A lot of users utilize Adblock to open remove ads from website pages. However, users can’t view websites that detect Adblock unless they whitelist them.
  • This article shows how users can make Adblock undetectable to sites with anti-adblocking scripts.

Adblock is an adblocking extension for Google Chrome (and other Chromium browsers) and Mozilla Firefox that can effectively speed up your browsing as it removes ads from website pages.

In the case of some websites, they use anti-adblocking scripts that detect Adblock (and other ad blockers). This doesn’t allow you to use the extension as it was intended.

Those websites will display messages requesting that you whitelist them to unblock their ads, and for this reason, it is very important to know how to make your ad blocker undetectable.

In today’s guide, we will explore the best options to use in this case, so ensure you’ll read through it.
