What if iBlockAds does not work properly?

  • iBlockAds is provided “as is” and on an “as available” basis. Use iBlockAds at your own risk. No warranty or condition is being made by us that iBlockAds will meet your requirements or be secure, timely, error-free or uninterrupted:
  • You understand and acknowledge the fact that the used filters may occasionally lead to blocked content. This is an undesirable side effect of some filters and cannot be evaded completely.
  • In itself, iBlockAds has no functionality; Unless you “tell” it what to block by adding lists of external filter, it does not block anything. Filter lists are basically an expansive set of rules that tell iBlockAds which elements of a website need to be blocked. We have no influence on those filter lists.

Inform us as soon as possible in the instance of you finding any defect or incorrect blocking, including blocking of content.
