How to block Google ads in Brave

If you are wondering how to block Google ads since you started using Brave, this article is for you!

Google advertisements

When searching on Google, ads can appear at the top and bottom of the page, even when Brave Adblocker is enabled. Why are these ads not blocked? Because Brave considers ads from Google as "first party ads". Hence, ads served on Google.com are not blocked by default.

To block them, just right click on the page, click on the Brave logo then "Block element via selector".

Brave settings

A text field should appear. To block top of page ads, you must enter: "#tads" without the quotes.

Top ads

Then, to block bottom ads, you will need to type: "#bottomads".

Bottom ads

You can now enjoy using Brave and Google without ads!
