Many people take uBlock Origin as an adblocker but it's actually a wide-spectrum blocker. That means uBlock Origin can block malware, spyware, trackers, analytics software, scripts, iframes, CSS, and images.

Ublock Origin has an incredible power and potential to protect you from virtually all malware, trackers, advertisers, hackers, and creeps much better than any other blocker or even your anti-virus software.

In this video I explain how uBlock Origin works in both static filtering and dynamic filtering and I also explain cosmetic filtering.

Then I go into in-depth explanation of how to best use uBlock Origin in easy mode (slightly enhanced default mode), medium mode, and hard mode.

If you don’t protect yourself, there are thousands of remote servers making requests on just a handful of your most favorite websites you visit daily. They have the audacity to track you without your consent and drain your power and bandwidth on top of that.

When you learn to use uBlock Origin to its full potential, it will act as your top-layer firewall that will block loads of malware circulating across the web. For example, with uBlock Origin in advanced mode, you would be immune to many cyber attacks and malware circulating across the web.
