Google Is Adding Support to Stop Ads from Following You Around the Web

Posted by at 10:53 am on January 26, 2018

Google said it is rolling out new controls for managing advertisements that appear in apps and on mobile web sites.

The change will allow people to use the ad preferences settings to put the kibosh on reminder ads that often show up after user’s search for specific products.

Google says the tool is first reaching the mobile web and will soon expand to YouTube, Search, and Gmail in the coming months.

Google is also  improving the “mute this ad” function in several ways. First, the tool will now be smart enough to cease showing ads that were first muted on a smartphone on the same user’s laptop or tablet (as long as they are signed into their Google account.) Second, the mute this ad tool will become more widely available, including within more apps and partner web sites so people can take control over their browsing experience.

These tools can be managed in the Google Dashboard.
