Ad Blockers and Covenant Eyes

In addition to using the Covenant Eyes filter, which blocks explicit websites, you can also use an ad blocker extension. An ad blocker is like a mini-program for your browser (Google Chrome, Edge, FireFox, etc.) that blocks pornographic pop-ups and ads. Our testing focused on the compatibility of the blocker with our Screen Accountability service. We did not test how well the blockers performed. Here are blockers that we found to be compatible:

 Name of Ad Blocker Chrome? Edge? Firefox?
AdBlock Yes Yes Yes
Adblock Plus Yes Yes Yes
AdBlocker by TrustNav Yes No No
AdBlocker Ultimate Yes Yes Yes
AdGuard Yes Yes Yes
AdLock Yes No Yes
TrustNav SafeSearch Yes No Yes
YouTube AdBlocker Yes Yes Yes

*The newest version of Edge is able to use some Chrome extensions.

To install an ad blocker for Google Chrome, search for it in the Chrome Web Store. Once you find the desired extension, click the “Add to Chrome” button.

To install an ad blocker for Microsoft Edge, search for it in the Microsoft Edge Add-ons page. Once you find the desired extension, click the “Get” button.

To install an ad blocker for FireFox, search for it in the FireFox Browser Add-Ons page. Once you find the desired extension, click the “+ Add to Firefox” button.
