When websites detect you’re using an ad-blocker, they execute anti-adblocking scripts. Those scripts can freeze a page and display you a pop-up demanding to whitelist a website, they ruin the way a page is displayed, they didn’t let you finish reading a post until you disable your ad-blocker, etc. AdLock can block URLs from which such scripts are downloaded then it deletes a warning anti-adblocker pop-up and restores a web page to its original form.
But if a website uses an unknown anti-adblocking script, AdLock may fail to bypass it. In this case, you can do the following:
- send us (firstname.lastname@example.org) a link to a problematic webpage, and we will add a new rule to the AdLock’s settings;
- bypass restriction on your own using this guide.

Inspect page element
When a website displays you an anti-adblocker warning which you can’t close, you can delete it from the page’s elements. This a short term solution which is on hand when you need content from a particular page.
Right-click the warning box and choose “Inspect” in a context menu. In a console find div class element which is responsible for showing you an anti-adblocking pop-up.
When you find a correct div class element, a pop-up box will be blue-lighted.
Right-click on the element and choose “Hide Element”. The warning box will disappear.
The changes won’t be permanent once you reload a page it goes back to its original form.
Tampermonkey is a browser extension to manage userscripts. With its help, you can run scripts to fight-off anti-adblocking scripts. Search for Tampermonkey in your browser’s web store or download it from the original website then install it.
Then you’ll need the script itself. Install a script Anti-Adblock Killer from OpenUserJS. Once you click “Install” you will be redirected to Tampermonkey’s confirm page. Confirm installation of the script by clicking “Install”.
You can check that the script is installed by clicking on the extension icon, then click on the “Dashboard” option.
Finally, you’re going to need to add a list of filters from Reeks’s Github page for the project. Browse to the page, and click on the “Subscribe” button.
That will show a message asking you if you want to add the filter list for the ad blocker that you’re currently using. Click “OK.”
Whitelist a problematic website
If you are a regular user of the particular website, you trust it, and it’s never disrespected you with redirects, full-page or auto-playing ads we suggest you whitelist it. It can feel like a defeat, but in the end, everybody wins. You continue browsing interesting content, and a website continues feeding its developers.
To whitelist a website open Settings tab in the application, click on Add domain name and type a URL in this format: www.example.com.
Well, you’ll never know until you try. All these methods except whitelisting may falter. If something didn’t work for you, let us know. Our developers will write a new anti-adblocking script to any page you send us. Enjoy free Internet!
