Useless extension that doesn't do anything except change the type of ads you see. There is literally no point to this, people who think untargeted ads are somehow better than targeted ads are just wrong.

Отключение персонализации рекламы не блокирует ее показ При использовании этого плагина количество объявлений, которые вы видите на веб-сайтах, никак не изменится. Плагин отключает только персонализацию рекламы. Это значит, что она будет менее релевантна для вас.

Does exactly what it says it does. For those who didn't read the description: - Stops interest-based ads on some of the websites that partner with Google THAT'S IT. They do this with an extension so that it stays even after you clear cookies.
