AdGuard AdBlocker effectively blocks all types of advertising on all web pages, even on Facebook, YouTube, and others!

## What AdGuard AdBlocker does:

★ Blocks all ads: video ads (includes YouTube adblock), rich media advertising, unwanted pop-ups (pop-up blocker), banners and text ads (includes Facebook adblock)
★ Speeds up page loading and saves bandwidth, thanks to the missing ads and pop-up windows
★ Protects your privacy by blocking common third-party tracking systems
★ Blocks many spyware, adware and dialer installers
★ Protects you from malware and phishing

## What are the advantages over Adblock or AdBlock Plus?

★ AdGuard ad blocker is really fast and lightweight. It uses half as much memory as other popular solutions: Adblock, Adblock Plus, and even outperforms uBlock Adblocker in some tests.
★ AdGuard can handle most of the anti-adblock scripts. You won't have to turn off the ad blocker any more to be able to visit the websites that are using such scripts.
★ AdGuard is simply better looking and modern (in our opinion).

Risk impact

AdGuard AdBlocker requires a lot of risky permissions and is not safe to use. Avoid installing this add-on 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

AdGuard AdBlocker has earned a good reputation and can be trusted.

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.
