Introduction to AdBlock Stats

AdBlock's stats feature provides a way for users to track their ad blocking activities over time, including ads, trackers, and for AdBlock Premium users, how many ads have been replaced via Image Swap. Please note that the stats feature is currently only available in the AdBlock desktop extension for Chrome, Firefox, and Edge. 

To access your AdBlock Stats, open the AdBlock menu (by clicking on the AdBlock toolbar icon and then on the gear symbol). Click Stats to open the Statistics Dashboard. The first time using AdBlock Stats, you'll need to opt in to allow AdBlock to collect statistics (statistics information is stored locally and is not shared directly with AdBlock). 

On the Statistics Dashboard, you'll see graphs displaying "Blocks over time" and "Blocks by site." Use "Blocks over time" to see how many ads and trackers you've blocked in the past week, month, year, or for all time. Use "Blocks by site" to see the sites where AdBlock has blocked the most ads and trackers. 

To disable the Stats feature, simply click the Trash icon on the top right of the page. Reinstalling the extension will also reset the feature.

We added this feature after a user submitted a request for it on our public roadmap. If you have a feature you'd like to see us add to AdBlock, please share your suggestion on our public roadmap. We'd love to hear from you!
