    There is a new fixed anti adblock filler with filter lists and source at..

    https://github.com/jspenguin2017/uBlockProtector

    Could we get this added to the adguard adblock subscription list for Android and Windows?

    I tested it with ublock on PC and it ublock origin and it worked like a dream.

    It's not new and it's only for uBlock Origin (and the author's uBO fork called Nano Adblocker). It used to be called Adblock Protector until the author renamed it and stated it's for uBlock/Nano only. So no, it won't be added to the subscription list (it was at one point but a disagreement with the author over AG users using the filter when it was stated it was for uBO only cause it to get removed). However, you *can* manually add the filter yourself but this is mostly pointless as the filter uses uBlock's extended syntax, which AG doesn't currently support. So I wouldn't recommend trying to use this list in AG. And you certainly wouldn't get support when trying to use this filter, especially from the filter's author. ;)

    I'll start with I already talked to someone else and an April update will address anti adblock so I'm happy to hear that.


    I know that it's for ublock only but I suppose you could say guessed that the filter list is what was important. It may be in a ublock format but I also figured that could be ported to work with adguard.

    I have no intention of trying to do so myself. I don't have the time. I also wasn't sure if someone here might not be aware of it and want to take a crack at it since anti adblock is becoming an issue more and more

    The easiest way to deal with anti-adblock messages and scripts right now is by reporting it - there's a reporting tool built-in the AG apps and browser extensions that helps with this. If you're using AG for Windows, you can get this tool by clicking on the Assistant icon and selecting Report the website. Most of the information should automatically be filled out, just say it's an anti-adblock script and add a screenshot. The filter devs, assuming they can reproduce it, will take care of it and add it to the filters (either Base filter and/or Annoyances filter).
