Ghostery for Edge provides safe, fast, and clutter-free browsing for free. The browser extension upgrades your Edge browser and supplies full adblock functionality, stops trackers from accessing your personal data, and annoying cookie consent pop-ups.

Ghostery has three main components:
* Ad-Blocking - blocks all ads on websites you visit with your Edge browser, including Youtube and Facebook, helping you to focus only on the information important to you.
* Anti-Tracking - stops trackers’ ability to collect your personal data, replacing it with random values and anonymizing your identity for data brokers. If you see a need to unblock individual trackers, we developed this option. The reasons are up to you!
* Never-Consent - automatically removes intrusive cookie popups and expresses dissent to online tracking. This unequaled feature adds convenience to each website visit and acts like your privacy advocate towards content providers while using Edge.

Ghostery delivers the online privacy protection our users have come to know and love while minimising the need for customisation and maintenance.

As Ghostery is more than an ad-blocker, it comes with exceptional additional features, not found in any other ad-blocking extension:
* Trackers information on any website your visit, informing you about the number of trackers, their type, and the company operating them.
* Trackers Preview on search engine result pages - displaying tracker information even before you visit a page. You can safely make the choice to visit it, as Ghostery will stop trackers expecting you on the landing page.
* WhoTracks.Me - Owning and operating the largest database of trackers allows Ghostery to update tracker information fast and reliably for all users.

Risk impact

Ghostery – Privacy Ad Blocker requires a number of risky permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install Ghostery – Privacy Ad Blocker if you trust the 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

Ghostery – Privacy Ad Blocker is probably trust-worthy. Prefer other publishers if available. Exercise caution when installing this add-on.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that an Edge add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Edge add-on reputation on Edge Add-on Store, the amount of time the Edge add-on has been around, and other signals about the Edge add-on. 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 an Edge add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

広告消せました! なんかいろいろ設定できるみたいです。YouTubeの広告も意外と消えました。                  追記 アイコンの右下の所に数字が表示されていますが、表示/非表示を切り替えられると嬉しいです。(あと0の時は非表示にしていただけると良い)
