In an industry rife with misinformation and misinformation campaigns, a new ad campaign has raised awareness of the effectiveness of a popular Adblock ad blocker that has been widely used to combat some of the most common types of malware on PCs.
The campaign, titled “I’ve seen your ads, but I’ve never used them,” started with a series of ads that are now available on YouTube.
The first of the adverts, titled I’ve seen yours, includes a picture of a laptop and the caption “The truth is, you can’t stop the Adblock ads from appearing on your screen.”
The caption “I’m going to say a few things” appears on the screen, accompanied by the caption, “Adblock doesn’t work.”
It then switches to a video of a man who describes how he used Adblock and how the ads stopped his computer from downloading malware.
The man then uses the same video to explain how Adblock stopped his desktop from downloading another malware, which the man says is also similar to the one he found.
The ad concludes with a photo of the man, who claims to have been “in denial” about how AdBlock works.
The man’s ad campaign is not the first attempt to address the false perception that Adblock is ineffective against malware.
Earlier this year, Google announced it had removed ads on the Google Play store that were misleading and claimed to be “clean” but were in fact malware.
Adblock Plus was designed by Microsoft and Microsoft’s Bing partner, Opera, which both have Adblock products.
The company has said it has been using Adblock for more than 20 years and that “over 60 million people have used AdBlock.”
Adblock was created to help people prevent unwanted software from downloading onto their computers and other devices, according to a spokesperson for Microsoft.
The ads on YouTube and Google Play are meant to “raise awareness and provide a platform to explain the effectiveness and value of Adblock, and encourage users to get Adblock removed.”
The ads do not appear to target Adblock users specifically, and some have even appeared on websites that have been reported as Adblock-enabled, like Reddit.
The “I know my computer” ad is one example.
AdBlock, which has a $5 per month subscription fee, offers an ad blocker for a $3.99 monthly fee.
Adblocking, which allows users to block ads, is more popular in the U.S. than in other countries.
Google’s Adblock browser, Chrome, does not offer Adblock support and is only available for Android phones.
