Adsblocke is promoted as an ad-blocker extension, and it may block some ads but it will display the ones its creators instruct it to. Because of this functionality, Adsblocke is considered adware or Potentially Unwanted program (PUP). Adsblocke may attract your attention as a stand-alone installer or it may be incorporated in freeware as a pay-per-install bundle. Ads, banners, windows, pop-ups and pop-unders displayed by Adsblocke are used to generate money and traffic towards its sponsors. As part of your browser, Adsblocke may record your browsing habits and use the information to show targeted ads.
