We are dedicated to transforming the internet into a trusted, sustainable and accessible place for users, browsers, advertisers and publishers. By building, monetizing, and distributing ad-filtering technologies, we create solutions that allow all members of the online ecosystem to prosper.
The online ecosystem is made up of various stakeholders including end users, content creators, advertisers, publishers, browsers and consumer product producers. We believe there’s a way for a fair value exchange between these stakeholders to keep the internet as an open, fair and prosperous resource for all.
Our ad-filtering technology is used by several browsers, extensions and platforms. It also powers some of the most popular ad blockers, such as Adblock Plus and AdBlock, both of which are part of the eyeo Group.
Publishers: With eyeo Publisher Solutions, publishers can gain revenue by reaching 300 million users with consented, nonintrusive and relevant advertising formats compliant with Acceptable Ads while participating in a mutually beneficial value exchange.
Advertisers: eyeo Advertiser Solutions offers access to 300 million ad-filtering users who opt into a lighter ad experience with Acceptable Ads-compliant ad formats.
Tech partners: Our ad-filtering technology easily integrates with existing tech stacks, provides new revenue options and delivers added value to your users.
If a website wants to show ads to ad-filtering users, they must apply to be on our allowlist and prove that the ads shown will meet the strict criteria established by the independent Acceptable Ads Committee - such as being clearly marked as advertising and not exceeding certain sizes or proportions of a page. There is no way to pay a fee to avoid the criteria to meet the Acceptable Ads Standard. Contact us to find out how to make your website compliant and partner with us.
Acceptable Ads is an ad standard comprised of certain criteria that have been researched and approved by the independent Acceptable Ads Committee (AAC). Ads that meet the criteria are shown to internet users who have Acceptable Ads enabled on their devices. These ads have been identified as non-annoying and non-disruptive to the user’s experience. The strict criteria of the Acceptable Ads Standard include clearly labeling advertising, placement, format and size. The criteria are continually researched and updated to keep a fair balance between users and those partners who monetize from advertising.
We are a privacy-focused and privacy-friendly company that has always put the user first. Because privacy is at the heart of everything we do, we value above all “privacy by choice”.
We do not track or sell personal data, are fully compliant with privacy laws, such as the GDPR and CCPA, and we practice data minimization and purpose limitation, anonymizing data where possible.
Ad filtering can meaningfully contribute to decarbonizing media.
Conscious and sustainable advertising is important for us at eyeo. We advocate for fewer ads that reaches consenting audiences in low-clutter environments to reduce carbon emissions.
