  3. Scroll down to the Privacy and Security section and select the Site settings from the menu.
  4. Choose the Ads option within Site settings under additional content settings.
  5. Toggle the switch to Block Ads on site that shows intrusive and misleading Ads option.

However, all the acceptable ads will display on the website. This way, a genuine content creator or online publisher will be rewarded, and a website meant only to make money with illegal computer ads will be punished.

Bottom Line

Google Chrome allows us to block ads using the built-in ad blocker. However, the ads that are intrusive and misleading will be blocked. If you want to block all ads, install ad blocker extensions.

Similarly, you can block misleading ads in Chrome on Android. It won’t block all the ads; however, the ads that Google categorizes as misleading or intrusive on the computer will be blocked.
