Chrome will block ads on deceptive websites

These types of abusive ads are a real hassle, and ad-dependent companies like Google are doing what they can to fight back against them.

So now Chrome 71 will block all ads appearing on sites that persistently show misleading ads.

"Last year, after hearing from Chrome users, we launched a set of user protections against 'abusive experiences'-experiences created to intentionally mislead and trick users into taking action on the web". Chrome 71 will automatically blacklist websites that continuously put out abusive behavior.

Starting in December 2018, Chrome 71 will remove all ads on sites with persistent abusive ad experiences.

Google will be going all guns blazing against the sites that are deceitful, misleading or hostile to users with their next Chrome update. If site owners fail to address complaints presented through the Abusive Experiences tool, Google will deny the site ads and the revenue that comes with them.

Phishing Ads or page elements that attempt to steal personal information or trick your users into sharing personal information.

This isn't the first step by Google to make the user experience of web browsing safer with Chrome. Released in July, this version of the browser prevented websites from opening any new tabs or windows if there were reports of the website being abusive. Google launched tools to deal with many of those issues in Chrome previous year, however, the company says the tools didn't go far enough. This includes points on the page that are transparent or non-visible yet open an unexpected ad when clicked.

Google Chrome 71 will seek to help you get rid of these malicious ads by punishing website owners who publish such content, by removing all bulk ads. The Google-owned browser already blocks or at least tries to block certain popups. Its all new Firefox 63 update packs Enhanced Tracking Protection designed specifically for those looking for more privacy, across the board, and not just limited to incognito. In the interest of user control, the company says Chrome users can disable its ad ban through their browser settings.
