The incoming feature will enable users to silence the reminder ads. Google, just like most tech giants, uses reminder ads as advertisers keep lists of visitors to their online stores. If these companies pay for Google ad services, Google shows the ads to people on those lists.
The incoming feature from Google will enable users to silence those ads for three months because the ads rarely persist any longer than that, Google explained.
To use the feature, you’ll need a Google account. From Ads Settings look for reminder ads and eliminate the advertisers you no longer wish to see ads from. Afterwards, you’ll notice that there are no more reminder ads on the sites that use Google ad services.
Websites and apps that don’t use Google ad services may still show you reminder ads,
the web search giant explained.
Google Plans to Silence Reminder Ads on YouTube and Gmail Too
Google has also promised to apply the new tool to YouTube, Gmail, and Search as well. But it may take several months before that.
Google first allowed users to block ads in 2012. In 2017, Google removed 1 million ads from the web following users’ reports.
Google also said that the new tool will work across platforms, so if you block the ads on your smartphone, they’ll stay blocked on your PC as well as long as you are signed into a Google account.
However, there is a much easier way to bypass the pesky reminder ads. Removing cookies or the cache from your web browser will do the trick as advertisers rely on the cookies stored on your device to remember your preferences and browsing history.
