  • (2020-02-08) Cagouillard Dashcam: Fonctionne très bien, mais fini par consommer énormément de ram jusqu’à 1.6 GB à lui tout seul. Mon PC ne dispose que de 4 GB, je dois donc m'en séparer à regret.
  • (2020-02-08) S Tan K: Super
  • (2020-02-06) cj zee: Thank you ghostery for giving me peace of mind on the web. You are the best!
  • (2020-02-06) Eric L: App works really well.
  • (2020-02-05) Sreejith S: Thank you for building this extension and keeping it free. Ghostery is AMAZING and I'm such a fan! However, some websites (eg. washington post ) wouldn't allow loading the website, thinking it's an adblocker - hope you guys find a solution for this issue.
  • (2020-02-03) The fair reviewer: its a sexist chrome extension it gave me computer aids and makes me wanna kill myself DO NOT INSTALL I AM A PRO ACTIVIST SO I KNOW MY STUFF SMH SHAKING MY HEAD
  • (2020-02-02) Greg McLemore: Highly ineffective and getting worse every day... almost every site I go to now has a pop-up saying I should disable this plugin... So I don't get the ads, but I don't get the site either... 6 months ago I would have given this a 4. The internet has advanced, but Ghostery hasn't.
  • (2020-01-29) Valeri Penev: THE BEST :)
  • (2020-01-28) Matthew Toledo: I really do not like the purple overlay at the bottom right hand corner of the screen that lists blocked trackers. There is seemingly no way to turn it off. This means that this program, designed to block unwanted content, injects its own unwanted content. Please give us an option to hide the reporting of blocked trackers.
  • (2020-01-22) Dan Eppolito: excellent
  • (2020-01-18) Unholy - Brawl Stars: Thanks for creating this. Unlike ad block and abp, ghostery already blocks all for you.
  • (2020-01-16) Reborn: 一般般,付费版不知道,免费版有些广告屏蔽不了,而且明显加载速度慢了
  • (2020-01-16) Bram Cramer: Works OK, but tends to crash every now and then when used in Vivaldi.
  • (2020-01-14) Amedeo Gariboldi: Estensione Formidabile, blocca tantissima pubblicità, ti segnala tutti i tracker ed è facilmente disattivabile quando entri in siti dove l'adblock crea problemi.
  • (2020-01-12) Aziz 1976: i recommend it
  • (2020-01-09) red fury91: saw all the raving reviews and installed it. first thing it did was spam me. deleted it immediately. if you dont mind a pop up blocker giving you pop ups of its own then go nuts dummies. good riddance to you
  • (2020-01-07) Pablo: This progressive app fully focuses on its users' needs and experience. It lets users take full control of their privacy and browsing experience.
  • (2020-01-05) Cristi: Nice
  • (2019-12-27) D. Smithee: An absolutely GREAT extension that is easily the smartest privacy app offered by Chrome and Firefox. Blocks the trackers that mean us harm, keeps the trackers that helps sites function properly. Tremendous.
  • (2019-12-23) Previsão: Antivirus: Adware Helpers (232 infecções) So me restou denunciar a extensão quando desistalei :(
  • (2019-12-11) Mitchell B: Works well - uses way too much RAM. I disabled this extension and immediately gained over a gig of available ram. Because this is a work computer with 8 GB ram, I cannot afford to use this much.
  • (2019-11-26) Ronald E. van Wijk: Hi, Ghostery worked OK until recently, the (for me main) opacq email address producing function disappeared suddenly!?!?!!? Solution?
  • (2019-11-26) Unknown Error: Haha, Ghostery found a tracker here. But great app!
  • (2019-11-25) Christopher Jansen: Used to be cool - now requires paid subscription for full functionality. Use something else.
  • (2019-11-24) Moo Scree: Though it's not really an ad blocker per se, it seems to do the job well enough.

    To preface, not sure if it is Ghostery, but my email addresses are no longer visible or drop down in Yahoo Login screen. I had no problem until I added Ghostery, but when removing it, it did not solve the issue.
