Block annoying ads

Blocking ads and pop ups makes your browser faster, cleaner, safer, and more private. With Opera mobile and desktop browsers, you can use the free Ad blockers immediately to block YouTube ads, video ads, popup ads - without downloading any extensions.

To enable the feature on desktop, click the shield icon next to your address bar and toggle on Block ads. The adblock feature can also be enabled or disabled from the Easy setup menu or directly in your Settings.

In Opera Browser for mobile, Ad blocking can be toggled on or off in Settings. Opera Ad blocker makes the web faster, safer, and easier to browse. You can start blocking ads with one click when you download Opera's popular browser.

Allow ads for individual pages

Some websites try to block adblock programs by requiring you to disable them before accessing their site. You don't need to completely disable your adblocker however. With Opera's free built-in Ad blockers for mobile and desktop, you can simply unblock ads for that site while still blocking annoying ads everywhere else. On desktop, just click the shield icon to the right of your address bar and select Turn off for this site - this will add the site's address to the list of exceptions and allow ads. On mobile, go to Ad blocking in Settings and add the site to Excluded sites.

You can block annoying ads while still allowing ads on the sites you choose. When the Opera adblock feature is on, you can also add or remove sites from the list of exceptions in Settings (Alt+P). Under Privacy protection, select Manage exceptions. Add an internet address by clicking Add, and remove web sites through the three-dot menu to the right of each site. With these management options you have complete control over when you block ads and when you allow them.

Start using Ad blocker

Tired of annoying ads and slow browsing? The Ad blocker in Opera mobile and desktop browsers will speed things up on the web and make sure ads don’t distract you from what matters. Try the first major browser to integrate an ad blocker – no need for add-ons.
