Can I block targeted ads if I use a free VPN?

Asked 2 years ago

I get a lot of targeted ads coming up in my browsers that annoy me a lot. No matter what, these ads pop up and get in the way of my browsing experience. My friends experience the same problems, but we found a free VPN that we think could do the trick. Do free VPNs block targeted ads completely?

Unfortunately no! Websites can still show targeted ads even when the VPN entirely changes your IP address and location. The primary tool these websites use is cookies in your cache. These cookies can track your online activity regardless of having a VPN service enabled. Even the paid VPN can't help you prevent those targeted ads.
