"Manual" pop-up ad
Posted by missileman2000 on Saturday, April 16, 2022 9:18 AM

This is a popup that you may want to avoid.  It pops up anywhere on the screen rather than the bottom.  In fact, I accidently clicked on it.  The screen jumps up or down based on the bottom popup ad changing, and it moved just as I was clicking on a forum, with the result that I clicked on the yellow button ad.

I suppose the product they are selling is a legitimate piece of software, but whether or not you go there, they make it hard to back out.  I had to shut down my browser to get back out.

Tojo is right, I've had duckduckgo for about three years, never has an ad made it through.

Thing is, when I installed it I was locked into it- could not use any other search engine until I uninstalled it.  There are several and I found it does not do everything well, even though it is good at blocking ads.
