StopAd overview

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.

Does StopAd Free or Pro really works on macOS? See for yourself https://youtu.be/7dhwN4gYOFY
