This tool helps you hide all the ads (pop-ups commercials, with or without sound or gifs) that appear on the website that you visit.
Why do people use this tool? Because these commercials can be annoying if they are not relevant for the user or if the site uses too many ads on one page. This software affects online stores because they lose potential customers. There are websites that have turned to different solutions: pop-up that asks you if you use an ad blocking and if you want to disable it or sites that force you to leave their website if you have activated this tool.
