Block Unwanted Ads with Adblock
What is Adblock?
Adblock is a browser add-on that stops advertisements from displaying on the student’s computer. This includes banners, pop-ups and video ads on all websites including Facebook and YouTube.
The Adblock icon, located on all three browsers, displays the number blocked ads:
- Chrome - icon is located at the top right-corner of the browser window
- Firefox - icon is located at the top right-corner of the browser window
- Internet Explorer - icon is located at the bottom of the browser window
Adblock does not interfere with the K12 OLS or other software installed on the student computer. Please keep this feature turned on in order to protect the student from viewing unwanted advertisements when visiting non-K12 sites. Also note, the K12 Online School does not display advertisements.
