Of course, there are some disadvantages to it. A lot of websites, not nokiaviews though are forcing users to disable adblocker on their devices. We think that is not the right way to encourage people to visit their site. For those sites you will have to disable the adblocker using steps mentioned above.

Another con is it has be configured for every single Wi-Fi connection you use. So, save that link somewhere on your phone. I saved it in Microsoft OneNote. Second disadvantage of this windows 10 mobile adblocker is that it does not work on cellular data.

Third and this will make developers angry and upset – it will disable all ads inside windows phone apps. So disable it if you want to support developers.
