How To Hide All Facebook Ads

Facebook can certainly be a valuable tool for staying in touch with loved ones or marketing your business, but the overwhelming volume of advertisements can become overwhelming. Luckily, there are several approaches you can take to reduce or eliminate these ads from appearing on your Facebook feed. In this guide, we will walk you through the easy process of hiding all Facebook ads.

Method 1: Using Facebook’s Built-In Controls

Facebook itself provides some controls which you can use to hide ads. However, this method requires you to manually hide every ad that appears on your screen. Here’s how:

  1. Click on the three dots at the top right corner of the ad.
  2. Select Hide ad.

This method will, over time, train Facebook’s algorithm to show you fewer ads, but it’s not a complete solution. For a more robust method, consider installing an ad-blocking extension on your browser.

Method 2: Using an Ad Blocker

There are a number of ad blockers that can effectively block Facebook ads. Let’s look at how you can do this using a popular ad blocker, AdBlock Plus.

  1. Download and install AdBlock Plus on your browser.
  2. Once installed, click on the AdBlock Plus icon and select Options.
  3. Under the Filters tab, click on Add filter subscription.
  4. Select EasyList and then click Add.
This will block most ads on Facebook. However, sponsored stories and posts from pages you've liked might still appear on your feed.


While Facebook ads can be an annoyance, there are simple ways to hide them. Whether you choose to use Facebook’s own controls or install an ad blocker, these methods can significantly improve your Facebook experience by reducing the number of ads you see. Just remember, if you use an ad blocker, you might also be blocking ads on other sites that rely on ad revenue. So, consider whitelisting those sites to support them.
