I use Adguard AdBlocker extension on Safari, and while it can block some, a few sites block content from being viewing if an Adblocker is detected.

Is there a script I can add to Adguard (extension) to block these Anti-Adblock messages?
Or a recommended file to import into Adguard AdBlocker?


Thank you.

As shady sometimes it may be that is the way some publishers and places that need the revenue have to go. Either leave the site or disable the adblocker for the site. :(

@pablozi Looking into it now. :)

@J Gamerz065 They are very obtrusive ads - invisible ads, background audio, adware downloads and background tabs of Betting sites etc.

The non obtrusive ads? Adblock Plus makes sure only to keep ads that meet their guidelines. Allowing acceptable ads in Adblock Plus

Honestly if you don't like the site don't go to it. Adblocking is only going to get publishers quality and sites even worse. Not to go off topic but honestly I watch youtube a lot and go on other sites and sacrificing to ads, rather than paying for a subscription to the site sounds a lot better to me. :p

@Huracan I have been using the full AdGuard for Windows, and FF 46.0.1 is my browser. I know we use different browsers and an alternate form of AdGuard... but maybe if you provide some websites where the extension version provides more misses than hits, I can compare with the installer version.

Logically speaking, I think both extension and installer would use the same filter lists, but maybe the installer offers more things than the extension does. For example, not sure if the extension has Stealth Mode... Just a thought, up to you. Others could chime in here as well, would be good to see extension vs installer results matched against your tricky websites list. I make use of the following filters:
  • English
  • Spyware
  • Social Media
  • Adblock Warning Removal
  • Prebake
  • Spam 404
  • Anti-Adblock Killer / Reek

Why so? Google Play (unlike amazon or apple stores) does not have any review process so doing so does not improve your security in any way.
They are Ads from trustworthy Apps, nothing threatening about them and they as @J Gamez065 keeps mentioning, supports the content creator. Unfortunately, I'll have to pass on anything outside of Google Play Store, but if other members are interested, they can go ahead and download it. It's not free, is it?

Back on topic, I'll try the suggestions for Anti-AdBlock filters.

No issues. Free for ad blocking in browsers, paid for apps.

Alternatively you could write a user filter rule using the well documented Adguard scriplets, play with the 'bab prevent' scriptlet. I am travelling and on very weak WIFI so can't post more details.
