Free ad-blocking protection
The internet has changed how we function these days and adware is as much part of your browsing as searching for daily weather forecasts. But, adware is unwanted and can be harmful. Performix developed AdGuard, with the primary focus to block unwanted and potentially malicious advertisements.
How does it work?
Advertisements popping up on your screen as banners and floating windows are frustrating, which hinders your ability to effectively search the web. They usually take the form of banners, pop-ups, and videos. AdGuard acts as an extension for Safari while browsing. It is essentially a piece of software code that eliminates advertised content from your browser while in use.
The main features
AdGuard offers you powerful tools to combat the slew of targeted advertisements. Advertisements can account for up to 50% of the data required to load a web page. By deflecting these prompts, you effectively decrease data usage. As a result, browser loading time is dramatically lowered.
Also, web analytics and filters ensure that your data and browsing habits are kept confidential.
Norton Ad Block and Firefox Focus are well-established players in browser privacy and protection landscape, and are designed to protect your internet surfing. Blockada offers you adequate protection, but also offers in-app purchases. These purchases unlock several tools to assist Safari.
