In this article I’m going to show you how you could block all advertisements, trackers, analytics, customer engagement widgets, social media widgets and comments using a single tool known as Ghostery. Although there are several adblocker out there but I have found Ghostery the most effective of all. Its a one stop solution for all the unwanted things like ads, trackers etc.

It is available both browsers Firefox and Chrome. I will explain the steps for Google Chrome. For firefox steps are more or like same.

Steps for Google Chrome :

1. Install Ghostery

2. After installation it will open a new tab automatically. Close that tab.

3. Now click on the Ghostery icon in chrome bar.

9. Click on Notifications Tab and untick / uncheck all options.

10. Click on Opt Out / Out In and uncheck all options.
