Geo-Filters by StopAd. How to Block Non-English Ads?

What are Geo-filters?

A filter is a set of rules for all kinds of advertisements. They are used to let the ad blockers know which element of the webpage is an ad and whether they should block or hide it. The difference of geo-filters from usual filters is that there are separate filters for each language.

Here at StopAd the most important thing for us is our customers, so we made sure to add the most widespread filters (and we are not planning to stop). StopAd for Windows includes the following geo-filters:

  • English
  • Dutch, Flemish
  • French
  • German
  • Japanese
  • Kazakh
  • Portuguese
  • Spanish, Castilian
  • Russian
  • Turkish
  • Belarusian
  • Ukrainian

StopAd for Mac includes the following list of geo-filters:

  • English
  • Dutch, Flemish
  • French
  • German
  • Japanese
  • Portuguese
  • Spanish, Castilian
  • Russian
  • Turkish
  • Ukrainian

All these filters are available in StopAd for Mac and Windows. They are stored in our databases on our servers and are loaded on your computer if they are needed.
StopAd automatically detects and activates the required filter depending on the webpage you’re on (as a rule, your keyboard layout is what’s used to identify the filter)

How to Block Non-English Ads?

If you want to make sure all filters are activated at the same time, please follow the instructions below.

  • Go to StopAd Settings.
  • Choose Geo-Filters in the list on the left.
  • Put a checkmark near all the filters you want to apply.

What If I See Ads in a Foreign Language?

Let’s take a French website as an example. If you see ads there which are in French, you need to check whether the French geo-filter is activated. To do that:

  • Go to StopAd Settings.
  • Choose Geo-Filters in the list on the left.
  • Find out if the French filter is checked. If it isn’t, check it.

If that didn’t solve the problem, please contact our Support Department.
