StopAd for Mac1.9.550.1

06 June 2018

Block ads on web browsers.

What is StopAd for Mac

Note: StopAd is no longer under development, and it is no longer available for sale.

StopAd allows you to block ads on all major browsers as well as in applications and social sites, including Facebook, Skype, and more.

Blocks:
  • Popups
  • Banner ads
  • YouTube ads
  • Auto-start video and audio ads
  • Facebook and Google ads
  • Skype ads

Privacy protection is our #1 concern and we think trackers go too far, so we block those, too. In 2016, search engines made over 100 billion dollars-partly by selling your personal data to advertisers. StopAd deactivates online trackers so search engines, advertisers and cyber criminals can’t collect your personal data when you’re online.

Note: price shown reflects that of an annual subscription. To view more pricing options, go here.

Like most Mac Users, I will NEVER BUY an App that has a Monthly or Annual Subscription Rate. If you can come up with a Good / Great App @ a fair 1 time purchase rate for right to use…..than Done. Most will buy. Suggestion…You may want to do the Math….Good Luck!

I have not tested the app, but one key question has appeared: given the high price, why would one buy this tool instead of the free and excellent Ghostery and AdGuard (I'm using both, after removing the various AdBlok apps that let numerous ads in)? Ghostery not only blocks ads, but also trackers...

Um, despite my comment below, I purchased this software. During trial I made the mistake of observing in preferences that Safari is the only browser choice, but the trial meanwhile was actually blocking ads for all browsers it can affect. That meant, as I unknowingly described below with precision, that Firefox ads are blocked after trial only if one buys a subscription. Well! When I actually gave it a chance, it worked so effectively that I bought the subscription...

I don't understand the last two comments - did you actually switch it on? I have no problem with StopAd. It's extremely effective and has one enormous benefit over all other adblockers I've used - I no longer get messages flashing up on web sites telling me I must whitelist their pages or, even worse, not allowing me to see the page at all because I'm using an adblocker. Currently I'm on the free version which seems to do all I need. And unlike vangulickc below I was given the option to choose my browser when the pro trial period finished.

Maybe it's due to my own lack of skill in installing the app or something, but StopAd has yet to stop anything at all on any site whatsoever: "Since June 12, 2018, 0 Ads blocked, 0 Trackers blocked, 0 Threats blocked."

The free (also trial) version of this software says it will work with only "one browser at a time." This is (intentionally, I think) misleading. The trial version will actually work with only one browser, and that browser is Safari. You pay for the pro version to test it in Firefox, Chrome, etc. I use Firefox, and have no real assurance in the rigid testing that the way it behaves in Safari (which I never touch) will be the same in Firefox—or even, after the misleading come-on, whether it will work in Firefox at all. This bodes poorly for user-friendliness. Too many variables, so little time!

I took the Pro trial, but had to uninstall it right away because it didn't work. While I was on my Safari home page, which is https://www.cnet.com, there were 5 large blue ADT banners on my screen. As of today , June 13, 2018, none of those ad blocker apps can compete with the one I am actually using. Sorry StopAd Pro or Free, you both failed the test.

I recently installed StopAd on my Mac. I read about this adblock on the Reddit. I decided to try and did not make a mistake in choosing. Great adblocker
