Ads are now bypassing adblocker after the update


#1

In pre-update version of Brave there was nice and easy way to configure which databases adblocker uses, this helped a lot, since russian, japanese, etc. websites usually are not filtered by the adblocker. Now, after the updates, a lot of ads are appearing again and I can’t find any way to configure it in the settings. Is there or will there be any way to configure this?

Hi @arciviscuvu,

Can you give example site/s, screenshot of the ads, your OS and Brave version?

Also, there an issue logged for adding the settings here https://github.com/brave/brave-browser/issues/403

And IIRC, regional adblock filter can follow the default languange setting. You can check it via brave://adblock

Brave also have cosmetic filter that can be used to block CSS element. Right click the ads > Brave > Block element.

Thanks
