Thanks for contacting us in community! We're aware of AdBlock Plus's features and that it is not a potentially unwanted application (PUA). Some recent ad-based scams could be blocked by this software, but we're unable to comment on whether it's good or bad idea from a personal device security point of view.

@55bears36. I have been using AdBlock Plus for couple of years now. It helps me to get rid of annoying ads on the web and it doesn't cause any slow performance on my web browser nor any detections from my TMMS 2017.
