How do I remove ad blockers?

  • Updated
If you are seeing the ad block message it usually means that there is something on your computer or on your web browser that is blocking ads - even if you have not installed an ad blocker. 
It could be your antivirus software, a browser update that has made this change, or it could be something provided by your internet service provider if you have a security package.
Below are some recommendations to assist you:
  • If there is an ad blocker extension on your browser, you can click on the icon at the top of your browser window and usually there is a feature to "allow ads" for websites you trust.
  • In your browser settings, find the Privacy and Security section to see what features are turned on. 
  • If you are blocking all cookies this could cause the ad block message to appear. (It will also cause some features of many websites to not work.)
  • Sending a "Do Not Track" request may also force the ad block message to display.
  • You can add to the section called "Sites that can always use cookies" (Chrome) or "Exceptions" (Edge), this will allow the site to function normally.
  • If you have a strict antivirus or security package that could also cause the ad block message to appear - checking the settings for that software might also help.
