AdNauseum–Ad Blocking With A Twist

You are viewing an old revision of this post, from May 20, 2018 @ 19:47:10. See below for differences between this version and the current revision.

AdNauseum is a free, Google Chrome extension that the company banned from the Chrome Web Store in 2017.

The extension hides ads, like any number of ad blockers, but twists the knife by automatically clicking on any ads it finds.  The intent is to render user targeting via ad surveillance pointless by flooding the ad surveillance software with false positives.
