An ad blocker is like a mini-program for your browser (Safari, Microsoft Edge, Firefox, etc.) that blocks pop-ups and advertisements.

Most ad blockers are free, but you can purchase or subscribe to them to unlock special features and content.

Using Ad Blockers


The Covenant Eyes filter is website-based, so its primary function is blocking explicit websites. Pairing an ad blocker with our filter may be helpful so you stop seeing inappropriate ads and pop-ups.

  • Microsoft Edge: search for the desired ad blocker on the Microsoft Edge Add-ons page and click the “Get” button.
