Nowadays, it has become necessary because admin of sites are placing such sexual and adult ads for attraction, so that’s why we have to prevent from them and AdBlock Plus will help to prevent them.
Similarly, if you ever download any software or application, so sometimes these types of ads also show download option and get attraction opportunity from this way. Suppose if a user click on it then two things will happen. First software definitely won’t download because it’s an ad not an option provided to download and second by clicking on this ad, you will be reached out to spamming or malware site which can easily put you in a big trouble.
