How to Disable an Ad Blocker

This article explains how to disable AdBlock and Adbock Plus for individual domains, for example, Crunchyroll.com, using Chrome or Safari.

AdBlock and Adblock Plus are browser extensions that perform similar functions, but they’re from different organizations and are not related to each other. Other ad blocking extensions and browsers behave similarly, so if you’re using one of them you should be able to figure out how to disable ad blocking by following this general approach.

Note that if you follow these instructions you’ll only be disabling ad blocking for one domain, or website. You’re not removing the extension or disabling it for other sites. You’re just turning it off while you’re with us. For instructions on how to uninstall an ad blocker entirely, please refer to the documentation for the extension itself.

Disabling a blocker for a single domain is very simple process. We illustrate how to do it here, using Adblock Plus on Chrome. See below for considerations about other extensions and browsers.

 

EXAMPLE ONE: Adblock Plus on Chrome

Step 1: Locate the Adblock Plus icon on the Safari toolbar.

It looks like a stop sign with the letters ABP in its center, and is generally found to the right of the address bar.



 

You may see a number inside a small square below and to the right of the stop sign. This indicates the number of ads being blocked on the site. In this example, that number is 2.

Step 2: Click on the icon and select “Enabled on this site”.



 

When you click on this item the wording will change from “Enabled” to “Disabled”. That tells you that Adblock Plus is now disabled.  

 

 

To see the effect, either refresh the page, or open a new tab and go to Crunchyroll.com. You will now see our advertisement as background.

Note that the number of ads blocked is now zero. That’s it, you’re done!



EXAMPLE TWO: AdBlock on Chrome

Step 1: Locate the AdBlock icon on the Chrome toolbar.

It looks like a stop sign with the the image of a raised hand, palm facing you, in its center, and is generally found to the right of the address bar.




You may see a number inside a small square below and to the right of the stop sign. This indicates the number of ads being blocked on the site. In this example, that number is 1.

Step 2: Click on the icon and select “Don’t run on pages on this domain”.




Step 3: Confirm your choice

When you click on “Don’t run on pages in this domain”, another menu will appear.

To confirm your choice, click on the button labeled “Exclude”.



 

You will notice that the image of the hand in the stop sign has changed from a raised palm to a “thumbs up”, and the sign’s color has changed to green, indicating that that domain has been approved to show ads.



 

Note that the number of ads blocked is now zero, so the square has gone away. That’s it, you’re done!

 

EXAMPLE THREE: Adblock Plus on Safari

Step 1: Locate the Adblock Plus icon on the Safari toolbar.

It looks like a stop sign with the letters ABP in its center, and is generally found to the left of the address bar.




 

You may see a number inside a small circle above and to the right of the stop sign. This indicates the number of ads being blocked on the site. In this example, that number is 1.

Step 2: Click on the icon and select “Enabled on this site”.




When you click on this item the wording will change from “Enabled” to “Disabled”. That tells you that Adblock Plus is now disabled.  






To see the effect, either refresh the page, or open a new tab and go to Crunchyroll.com. You will now see our advertisement as background.

Note that the number of ads blocked is now zero. That’s it, you’re done!
