Are you constantly looking at ads when browsing the internet?
Have you had malware infections and you had no idea where they came from ?
Well maybe you need an adblocker.
What is an Adblocker ?
An adblocker is technology that will block ads in your internet browser before they are loaded.
Why should I install an Adblocker ?
I think from a security point of view an adblocker is becoming a must as just by browsing the internet you can be subject to malvertising
This means that just by going to a webpage you can ” pick up ” malware from the ads on the page.
The adblocker can stop this occurring which is especially useful when you look at sites such as Gumtree which recently served up malware to visitors to their site.
Even Edward Snowden believes people should use an adblocker.
However as many sites rely on payments from advertisers , remember for trusted sites , you can turn off adblocker for those sites. ( Such as mine )
