disabled all other extensions but privalert and ads are being blocked. if I disable privalert then the ads are back. I’m not complaining but I just want to know what’s causing it since I was told by comodo staff that it doesn’t block ads even though it does. at least on my system. is privalert blocking ads for anyone else or am I the only one
can anyone explain why privalert is blocking ads when It's not an adblocker
It is not blocking the ads as such.
If the advertising has privacy or tracking concerns or capabilities then the ad content/elements will be blocked.
Same exact behavior for me too. I’m not complaining though!
I see so it only blocks ads that track or invade privacy
Correct but it is not limited to ads, it can block any source on a site that has tracking/privacy capabilities.
