Helps me all the time. If some of the sites do want me to remove it, then it is only a temporary measure.
I always remove all cookies and allow them only for that session if the need arises. Then again, my location is always witheld for those who want to target me.
for iPhone and iPad right now. And no banner ads, no pop ups no companies trying to sell me weight loss products and or weight loss secrets. So I can search the web on the Adblock app without any problems. Yay Internet!
