AdBlock Detector JavaScript

Hey friends, today in this blog you’ll learn how to Detect AdBlock using JavaScript. In the earlier blog, I have shared how to Detect Internet Connection Status using JavaScript and now it’s time to create a popup box using JavaScript that detects AdBlocker. If you’re new to this blog and it’s the first blog you’re viewing then click here to view playlists of our all JavaScript Projects on YouTube.

AdBlocker is a content filtering or web browser extension that blocks different online ads that interrupt your browsing experience. It helps the user to prevent unintended pop-ups, flashing banners, online advertisements from being displayed. I don’t recommend you to use AdBlocker on a free site like ours which has the main income source is displaying ads and giving you helpful content because the website needs money to stay free and it’s only possible if you view or click on their ads.


In our program [Detect AdBlock using JavaScript], as you can see in the preview image there is a popup box with some text and a button to dismiss the popup. If the user has enabled AdBlocker then this popup will be displayed and if not then this popup will not be displayed.

Video Tutorial of Detect AdBlock using JavaScript

 
In the video, you’ve seen how this Adblock Detector looks like and how I created using only HTML CSS & JavaScript. The codes and concept behind creating this detector are so simple and you can easily understand codes even if you’re a beginner. When AdBlocker is enabled then it avoids some classes, id, scripts from rendering on the user browser.
 
Here are some classes ad, ads, ad-banner, ad-box, ad-badge that AdBlocker adds display: none; property to hide from the visitors. So we’ve created an element and added these classes in it and check what this element is returning. If AdBlocker is enabled then obviously it’ll return display: none; because adblocker will add none value to hide it and if adblocker is not enabled then it returns display: block;

  1. Hello, just had a problem that when I put the same code, the main container did not show, I don’t want to detect AdBlock, just liked the look of this, so just wanted the normal html *EXLUDING THE ADBLOCK DETECT CODE (Java, other…), HOPE YOU HAVE SOME SOLUTION*

    • I’ve added code to hide this popup in case AdBlocker is disabled. You need to open this html file using the live server to check this AdBlock Detector is properly working or not but if you don’t want to detect AdBlock then you’ve to modified some JS codes. Due to some reason, I can’t comment codes here so please contact me through the contact page.
