Mackeeper

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

MacKeeper ads pop up constantly. I can't get rid of them.  I tried blocking cookies in security and privacy. No luck.



 



Suggestions?  Thanks.

I use AdBlock, Ghostery, DoNotTrackMe, and Disconnect for that sort of thing. Don’t know if any are redundant; don’t care.

 

I use Get Off My Lawn for social networking blocking, but that’s a different story. :p

Are these free to use?

Oh, certainly. They’re just extensions. You can find them on Apple’s extension page.

If you don't mind poking under the hood of your system, you can edit your /etc/hosts file to block known advertising domains. I prefer this method to using browser-specific extensions since it works at the system level and does not depend on what browser I am using. For references, see http://lifehacker.com/5817447/how-to-block-unwanted-ads-in-all-applications-and-speed-up-web-browsing-with-the-hosts-file.
