Instart Logic and Invasive Ads/Tracking


#1

I am sure Brave is following the somewhat aggressive paths taken by companies to work around ad and tracker blockers.

Instart Logic is used widely on sites like:

metacritic.com



As I understand it, these workarounds severely limit the ability of traditional blockers to be effective at all.

Is Brave already protecting us from this, or is this something in the works?

Thanks,

Our tracker-blocking behavior should already block the subdomains from which Instart Logic serves its malware. That’s what it looked like when I checked on boston.com.

Thanks for the reply, toml. This gets quickly beyond my knowledge in this area, but you might want to check out:

it appears the ads are served in such a way as to bypass all blockers. Would be great to assure faithful Brave users that you guys are on it.
