Image from store Protect My Choices
Description from store Protect My Choices is an extension for users seeking to opt out of interest-based advertising, and to help ensure that their opt-out choices are protected. In one step, it opts your browser out of interest-based advertising performed by companies participating in the industry self-regulatory program for online advertising, and protects those opt out choices by helping to prevent the accidental deletion of cookies that store your choices. Some things you should know: * Protect My Choices applies to interest-based advertising by participating companies. Once you install this extension, you will still receive online advertising from participating companies, and the Web sites you visit may still collect information for other purposes. * As more companies join the industry self-regulatory program, their opt-outs will be added to Protect My Choices. As with all Chrome extensions, you’ll be asked to allow Chrome to update the extension to add new opt-outs. If you do not update the extension, it will be disabled until you update it. You can confirm that your opt-outs have been set at http://www.aboutads.info/choices/. You can always check the status of your extensions by clicking Extensions in the Window menu. * This extension and your opt-out choices apply only in this browser, so you should separately set your preferences for other browsers or computers you may use.

  • (2024-05-06) Landon Cucchi: It doesn't work. It doesn't do anything at all.
  • (2022-09-20) Dawne G (aka TechQueen): Doesn't actually do any thing...and I went through the headache of doing all the extra items required before hand on this one, as well as two others -IBA opt out (google) and Goggle Analytics opt out. to ensure that once the exention was loaded it sites would respect things. But nope. Neither one of these do anything. However I found one that DOES work - Ghostery - It Blocks Ads, trackers, you name it perfectly. Even hyperlinks from pages I normally use are sent to a Ghostery page telling you that this is a redirect and may not be safe etc....Didnt expect that. Best thing is when you can click on the extension settings of Ghostery you can SEE the details of what is being blocked--right down to the name, url etc.... Of course you can also edit settings per site as needed. It was free, but at this point I will buy the full pro version. Since it's the first extension that actually protects tracking, ads, and all that garbage that is all over webpages. Amusing part? The stuff that this "Protect my choices" was supposed to block or protect? Was in the Ghostery items. LOL Even after I had specifically stated to be opted out of all that stuff.
  • (2022-06-07) Tony Cassio: excelente. aunque google le ponga muchas trampas, pero muy buena extension.
  • (2022-05-31) Simon Ivanov: It`s very good! thanks!
  • (2022-04-29) RiNo O: Doesn't work.
  • (2022-04-16) oldman: I find it really doesn't work as advertised
  • (2022-01-31) John Spalvins: Perhaps I don't understand what this extension is actually supposed to do, but I use on average 8-12 browsers from Google across 5 devices (all synced) and still get interest-based ads even though I have it checked to opt-out in my settings in my profile, and every single time I update anything, unsync/resync to my account, essentially make any change to any one of my browsers, besides finding that my account "mysteriously" has opt-out disabled once again, Google Ad Settings (YourAdChoices/IBA) seems to think that all 126 or 128 companies listed seems to think that I wish to "Customize Ads for My Browser". As an experiment, I've gone in to the Ad settings on every single browser on a very regular basis, and most of the time, I'm "magically" unchosen to opt-out once again. Personally uBlock Origin id the only solution I've discovered that has an actual effect on my browsing experience with Chrome.

  • (2021-11-26) hammad danish: jhjjjj
  • (2021-06-18) 润: it doesn't work.
  • (2021-04-01) Erik D. Phillips: How do we know what you say you're doing...you're really doing? Also....For a company that is supposed to be helping to enforce our choices when it comes to privacy....why then have YOU not provided any information about the collection or usage of YOUR data???
  • (2021-02-10) Ess Mo: Méfiance ! A l'installation, par défaut, il autorise voire implémente tous les sites dont souhaiterait la disparition !
  • (2021-01-29) fhj 52: "Opt out requests for 35 participating companies were successful" ...out of 114. "Opt-out requests for 79 participating companies were not completed." It's the same kind of result every time I update choices. The numbers vary slightly but 2/3 of the so-called " participating companies " are not really participating. I have noticed no improvement with it installed. My best guess is that the so-called " participating companies " are not advertising very much, at least not at the sites I visit. After 3 attempts, again, for the THIRD update, it still failed on 2/3 of the companies. I don't have the time or patience for this nonsense. =>Removed.
  • (2020-07-21) Sean Lally: Just doesnt work, a waste of time. I still need to go in an manually check all the time.
  • (2020-04-05) Александр Дока: Внимательно почитайте обзор это не блокировщик рекламы.
  • (2020-03-17) Aryan Nikam: This is great!!!!
  • (2020-01-04) Jake: I hope this extension blocks all of these advertisers that it claims to. I will have to wait and see to test it. Will update my review in a few weeks.
  • (2019-12-25) 梁国义: 这干嘛用的?
  • (2019-12-21) Roberto Arca Tasende: me molestan los anuncios me quitan tiempo.
  • (2019-12-18) Delik POS (delikpos): application supports
  • (2019-10-28) John Cebs: This app is only to protect your opt-out choices from YourAdChoices.com. This itself is not an ad blocker. This is supposed to help you maintain your targeted advertising opt-out cookies when you clear your cookies in a browser. Again, this can not, does not, and will not block a single ad. It will protect your targeted advertising preferences should you clear your cookies and start from scratch.
  • (2019-08-29) Dave Mitchell: QUESTION: In the settings for this extension, there is an option that I would like qualified. "Site access This extension can read and change your data on sites. You can control which sites the extension can access." "Automatically allow access on the following sites" http://*.advertiser-example* http://*.advertiser-example* http://*.advertiser-example* In particular, what does this phrase "Automatically allow access on the following sites" mean? All of the sites listed in the extension were turned ON in the settings. I understand this as meaning "You can control which sites the extension can access" What happens when the extension has access? Does this mean the extension is BLOCKING these sites when they are turned on in the settings or is the extension ALLOWING these sites to access my browser when turned on?
  • (2019-07-09) My Ad's From New Technology: It is so amazing
  • (2019-07-05) Roman Laptenok: Наше Солнце В Центре Нашей Земли. А Вообщем Земля И Солнце Это Одно Целое, Такая Форма Жизни! Мир Вокруг Нас - Многогранен. Лаптёнок Роман Михайлович.
  • (2018-10-17) Chi Hiremath: Not working at all.
  • (2018-09-04) Paul Harbison: Mandated by both US and EU federal law, excellent application to keep updated.
  • (2018-08-20) NUL A C ....! les pubs s affiches toujours
  • (2018-08-10) Dennis Funderburg: Never had a problem and it does block most ads from reoccurring...I recheck my preferences every couple months because some ad companies reinstate the ads. No problem, I just update my choices.
  • (2018-08-05) Malen Chittaro: Acá no me cabe que google use mi data porque me limita a la parte de mundo que frecuento. Vamos a ver si no es demasiado mundo igual.
  • (2018-07-28) Ajuda a combater o rastreamento web. Respeita o livre arbítrio do usuário, seu poder de escolher se quer receber anúncios.
  • (2018-07-06) Lic. en Pedagogía Martín Zamudio Gamboa: Este elemento es necesario para todos aquellos que necesitamos navegar por internet, debido a que no sabes en que momento pueden allanar tus espacios, y contenido seleccionado, y aportado a Google..!
  • (2018-06-25) Tom Provino: Doesn't work for their own ads
  • (2018-05-29) Jennifer T (Jenn): Like everyone else. Didn't do a good enough job. And it seemed I was getting MORE ads from Amazon and I now can't even disable this!
  • (2018-05-10) L. R.: Absolument inutile. Les publicités sont toujours ciblées malgré l'extension activée. C'est d'autant plus idiot que si j'achète un billet d'avion, j'ai plein de pubs pour des voyages APRÈS, alors que j'ai déjà mon billet.
  • (2018-04-26) Bren Sinclair: Does not work. USELESS
  • (2018-04-16) Mark E: It's stable and functions as intended, but it's not actually effective because too many advertisers do not honour the opt-out. End result is - still getting loads of creepy stalking going on in the adverts I see on-line. So I use a total ad blocker instead.
  • (2018-04-04) Sam Gebala: Not sure that this App works. Still getting directed Ads from Amazon!
  • (2018-03-21) Ms: Made ads problems even worse!! Some take over page! FORGET IT PEOPLE!
  • (2018-03-21) Ça ne fonctionne pas, je reçois toujours le mêmes choses, il faudrait le nommer: Don't Protect My choices ou Protect google's choices
  • (2018-01-08) It was okay, the operative word being WAS. Unfortunately, after a few months it WASN'T okay. Whenever I need to reload or refresh a page (it doesn't happen often, but it does happen) my saved 'opt-outs' were lost. Sometimes rebooting my system would bring them back, sometimes it wouldn't and I'd have to re-enter everything, only to lose it all again whenever I needed to refresh/reload again.. I now feel like this app added me to do it's work for it, when it should be the other way around. It no longer works as advertised and so I'm uninstalling it.
  • (2017-12-31) Stephen Eason: As said previously, doesn't seem to work; will therefore disable extension in a minute.
  • (2017-12-25) Je reçois toujours des spam dans ma boite..
  • (2017-10-19) Jld Pittman: Doesn't work! Don't waste your time.
  • (2017-10-10) Hades A.S: useless
  • (2017-08-09) Dutch Fairuse: From the description: "Protect My Choices applies to interest-based advertising by participating companies. Once you install this extension, you will still receive online advertising from participating companies, and the Web sites you visit may still collect information for other purposes. " With that in mind I'm wondering how and why CPU load goes up. Chrome is already Page Fault king when playing movies. TANSTAFL
