Sites won't allow blocking
« on: July 21, 2022, 07:57:58 PM »
eg., Weather.com no longer functions with Ad Blocker engaged.  Any plans to address this?

Hi,

Are you referring to the Avast AntiTrack application or something else? Weather.com seems to be working for me. Could you explain what exactly is not working on this site? Which browser are you using? Perhaps you can provide a screenshot for clarification. https://support.avast.com/en-ww/article/Create-screenshot

W8.1, Avast browser , Avast anti-track. The website Weather.com will only work if anti-track is off.

Hi,

This seems to be about adblock in Avast Secure Browser, not the Avast AntiTrack application. (I am not able to reproduce, try updating Avast Secure Browser). (Moving topic to Avast Secure Browser)

Hello Oscar,

thank you for your question.

I discussed this with our Adblock (Privacy guard) team and there is unfortunately not a plan at the moment to address the situation you describe.

As you correctly found out, the only option to visit a site that is denying access to visitors that are blocking ads is to disable adblocker for the domain.
