We've added an option to automatically hide most ads and popups. This option can hide ads, subscriptions, and most popups on many websites. You may find websites on which this option does not hide an ad or messes up the layout of the site. Please report these issues to help us improve our ad blocker.

If this does not work
This new feature works on most websites. If it does not work on a page, you can use the automation steps to handle more complex cases. You can find examples on our blog.
