Replacement for Ghostery?


New Member
I enjoyed Adguard because Adblock is a memory hug, and I also liked the options offered and the clean interface.

I was looking at the options, and there is a spyware block list, and wondered if that could be a replacement for Ghostery, which blocks these:
Advertising: 954 trackers
Analytics: 297 trackers
Beacons: 378 trackers
Privacy: 18 trackers
Widgets: 280 trackers

The reason I'm asking this is that Ghostery consumes a good amount of RAM too, so I would like to know if these kind of spyware are included in Adguard too!

Thank you for your attention!

Greetings and welcome!

Yes, Adguard can be used as a replacement for both Ghostery and Disconnect and from what I heard it can be used with them too (though I wouldn't recommend it). As the description for the extension says;

Just enable "Spyware and tracking filter" in Adguard's settings. It completely removes all forms of tracking from the internet. Adguard has one of the largest tracker filter containing more than 5,000 rules. It is even larger than the databases Ghostery® and Disconnect have.
As long as you enable the Spyware and tracking filter, you should be good to go!
