Safety
Risk impact

AdBlock — best ad blocker requires a lot of risky permissions and is not safe to use. Avoid installing this extension unless you absolutely trust this publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

AdBlock — best ad blocker has earned a good reputation and can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Chrome extension may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Chrome extension reputation on Chrome Web Store, the amount of time the Chrome extension has been around, and other signals about the Chrome extension. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Chrome extension, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

Loved it but it stopped blocking ads suddenly and I can't fix it
by Shawn Park Shawn Park, 2023-02-04

This is amazing. Adblock blocked all unnecessary adware on my PC it's incredible. On a specific site the code had been changed by intruders so that ads appear even though I turned it off on the website to allow ads; but they came. Soon as I installed Adblock all of those ads went away immediately.

Manifest
