How To Get Rid Of Ads That Pay You Online

Most of us agree that when we check out any product or service online, we will be bombarded with ads for those products on every website we visit later.

Most of the sales you can live with. Maybe you looked at a Frisbee on the Target or Amazon website, and four weeks later, you still see an ad for a Frisbee, don’t forget that your brother’s birthday was two weeks ago and you bought some gifts with Marvel or Pokémon in title.

The ads it follows are a minor problem – really more than a little annoying. But what about your actual marketing, really Don’t you want to follow you, like those who treat hemorrhoids?

Maybe you share your computer or devices with your family, or your coworkers come into your office, and let’s just say you’ve had a bad week lately. Maybe you’d rather no one notices that every website on your device is covered in ads for diarrhea pills or dewormers.

How do you get rid of these types of ads?

Fortunately, you have options.

Activate the ‘do not track’ feature in your web browser.

“This feature sends a signal to the websites you visit that you will not be tracked. Some websites may ignore the request, but others may comply with it,” said Abdul Rahim, founder and CEO of the website. Software Testing Tips.

You should be able to find the “do not track” feature in your browser settings, although you may have to hunt for it. For example, in Chrome, it’s in Settings, and from there, you’ll click on Privacy and Security, then access Cookies and other site information.

Use an ad blocker on your device.

“Ad blockers are programs that prevent ads from appearing on your screen by blocking the code that websites use to display them,” Rahim explained. “There are many different types of ad blockers, both as browser extensions and standalone programs.”

Most ad blockers are free; some are not. There may be some disadvantages to them, such as ad blockers sometimes interfering with the ability to easily navigate around the website. And, of course, most websites and blogs make money from ads. If everyone used an ad blocker, in theory, advertising revenue would dry up for websites and there could be more ways to pay, or fewer websites and blogs as they go out of business.

But if you really hate ads, sure, it’s worth considering.

Use different searches for different tasks.

This is Rahim’s priority. He said he would use one browser for online shopping and another for social media.

“This way, you can set each browser separately so that the tracking cookies used by different websites are stored separately,” he said.

Don’t use Google or Bing.

Yes, yes, we all love Google, and Bing gets a lot of flak for its excellent search engine.

But Sankar Gopinath, digital marketing manager at Rapyder Cloud Solutionsrecommends not using some popular search engines – at least if you are buying products or services that you think may come back to you in sales later.

Try a Google alternative like DuckDuckGo as your search engine. They don’t follow you to deliver targeted ads,” he said.

Shop while using ‘incognito’.

Gopinath recommends this strategy, too. “Use incognito when shopping and searching in Google or Bing, or any search engine for that matter,” he said.

It is also sometimes called “independent research.” All major browsers have some version of this. For example, with Safari, if you’re on your iPhone or iPad, you’ll look for an icon that looks like two squares on top of each other. Tap on that, and you’ll open a new page. Then select Private from the bottom left corner, which will open the Private page. Finding the Private key is a little different if you’re on a Mac. You must select File from the left corner of Safari and then click New Private Browsing.

With Chrome, look for the three vertical dots in the upper right corner. The third item at the bottom should be the New Incognito Window. Click on that, and you’re there.

The downside to privacy checks is that if you add items to your shopping cart, they will not be stored for later. On the other hand, if you’re doing birthday shopping for your wife or kids or someone else, you won’t get ads for those products later on your computer screen or device, possibly offering the same gifts they would. to get.

And, yes, see? Being advertised doesn’t always mean that you are shopping for something embarrassing that you don’t want anyone to see. You can shop for an amazing gift. You are very thoughtful.

Use the panic button.

Most browsers have panic button extensions that you can download – at least the major ones, such as Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome and Firefox browsers.

As one Firefox developer said, “Don’t want your boss to catch you surfing the web on company time? Don’t want your teacher, classmates, roommate or significant other to see the websites you’re browsing? With Panic Button, a single click of the toolbar will quickly hide all Firefox browser windows and open a new window displaying the website of your choice – press the toolbar to restore your browser windows.

Of course, this is another form of not wanting family or friends to see ads – you’ll use the fear button to hide all the websites you’re viewing. But, still, if you have tons of amazing ads splashed across your website, or shopping for gifts you bought for your family, and you’re in a panic, there’s a button for that.

Delete cookies.

Just to review, for those who don’t remember what are cookies when it comes to websites, it’s small data that the websites you visit send to your browser.

Cookies allow websites to remember you. When you enter the website, your username and password are stored there, so you don’t have to type it all in, because it’s a cookie. When you go to the shopping cart, and you have items in it that you checked out two days ago, it sits in your cart because of cookies.

“When you visit websites, you can choose to accept or reject cookies when there is an option to do so,” said Mihae Ahn, vice president of sales at ProServe ITcloud and IT service provider.

“Some websites show you a text box at the bottom when you first visit them, giving you the option to accept or reject cookies,” she said. Another way to delete cookies is to change the settings. For example, if you are using Chrome, open the browser, click the three dots in the upper right corner, and then click Privacy and Security. You can delete all cookies or data from a specific site.”

But let’s get real. Most of us would not do this.

A final word on removing ads from your computer.

In fact, most of us probably won’t do any of the things we recommend. We are online a lot, and ads are often in the experience, and if you have to work hard to avoid them, you might as well just throw up your hands and use the internet like you always have. But it’s good to know that if you’re shopping for products or services that you prefer to keep private, you have better options.
