- How to ban Web sites from
access to your computer.
How to block advertising
- This is a useful way to ban advertising Web sites from
even accessing your computer. Add their domain names to your HOSTS
shows how to do it. This is even more effective than ad-blocking
software because the entire advertising domain or subdomain is banned
from your computer.
How to block (or remove)
- Adblock Plus will
block a lot, if not most, unwanted content. The default setting, which we use, does not
block non-invasive advertising such as banner ads that appear off to
the side. We recognize that many Web sites rely on legitimate
advertising income to provide free content, so we do not block
non-invasive ads. Adblock Plus can also be configured to exempt sites
you like and want to support even though the advertising does not match
Adblock's criteria; we have safe-listed many such sites. On the other
hand, pop-up ads that intrude over the desired content, or uninvited
video or audio that play without us clicking on it--one strike and
they're out (unless they are hosted by sites we really want to support.)
- UBlock Origin also is useful, and works on Chrome,
Firefox, and possibly other browsers.
- Levinson Productivity Systems PC respects visitors'
privacy and does not use tracking cookies. We use Cookie
AutoDelete by Kenny Do to ensure that the sites we visit respect
ours. This add-on is available for Firefox and Chrome (that we know of)
and can also safe-list sites you visit frequently and for which cookies
save you time..
