Why do I see the message 'Ad Blocker Detected'?

To be able to view an AdF.ly link and it's destination URL, we require that an advert shown.

We are an advertising network and our Publishers use this revenue in order to monetize their websites and provide their users with content.

If you are seeing the 'Ad Blocker Detected' message, it means we have detected that you have a browser extension or software installed on your computer preventing the advert from being shown. In order to be able to continue with the AdF.ly link, you will need to add the following domains to your ad blocker whitelist:

adf.ly
j.gs
q.gs

After this has been done, the AdF.ly links will function normally and the Skip Ad button will be shown.

Please find a guide below to add a URL to the whitelist of each major ad blocking software:
