Five workarounds to do when a site asks you to disable ad-blocker
When you visit a site or blog with your ad-blocker setup on the browser, it asks you to disable that. At this point, there are several workarounds to do. Let us see them one by one.
Remove the popup and its overlay using the development tool.
It requires an understanding of HTML. You can inspect the element with the browser’s development tool. Then, you can remove the popup and its overlay HTML. This way, you can access and read the content without disabling your browser’s ad blocker.
Activate browser reader mode.
It is an advanced workaround. Do this at your own risk. If you’re curious, read on this GitHub repository. Here’s how it works: It works as a DNS server to nullify a request to DNS that serves ads. So, the anti-ad-block can’t detect it.
Close it and look for other similar sites.
It is the last effort if you can’t access the site content with your ad-blocker. Just close the site. Many similar sites may provide the content you need without asking you to turn off your ad blocker.
Please don’t give up by turning off your ad-blocker. If a site asks me to disable my ad-blocker, I skip it and close it. I’ll never visit such a site again.
