Frequently asked questions


No, thanks. - what is that?

"No, thanks." is a browser extension which works hard to block, hide or click away common web annoyances like newsletter pop-ups, chat / feedback / contact boxes, app installation toolbars, "allow us to send notifications" pop-ups, survey / opinion pop-ups, website translation toolbars, location request pop-ups, "Rated by" boxes, "Protected by" boxes, "back to top" buttons, sticky video boxes in the corner and even more!

...but I need some of the things this extension blocks!

You can choose what you want to block or keep. In example, if you need to chat with customer services often, you can uncheck it in extension options. You can also whitelist any domain you want and the extension will not block anything there.

Which browsers are supported?

Officially, Firefox (including Firefox for Android) and Chrome.
Other browsers like Opera, Microsoft Edge Beta, Vivaldi, Yandex or Brave support installing Chrome extensions.

Can I try it before I subscribe?

No, you need to pay for the subscription to be able to use it, but don't worry. If you are unhappy with the extension, contact us within first 14 days: we will cancel your subscription and refund your payment.

How to subscribe?

After you install the extension, it will open the subscription page for you. Click the PayPal button to pay for the annual subscription. After the payment has been made, you will get a unique subscription hash, the extension will update itself and become ready to use for 1 year.

PayPal only?

Currently yes.

I reinstalled my browser. How to make the extension work again?

A unique 64-bit hash will be displayed in your browser and also sent to you by e-mail after subscribing. Save it. Next time you install the extension, go to extension options, paste that hash into the appropriate field and save options. It will start working again.

I use several browsers and devices. Do I need to buy a subscription for each of them?

No, feel free to use the same subscription hash in several browsers if needed (see the instructions in the previous question). If you need to install it into a larger number of browsers, contact us to make a custom arrangement for you.

What about privacy? Do you collect any personal data?

This website doesn't collect any data at all. The extension doesn't collect any personal data. It collects only information about its own updates (like current extension version and browser name) in order to work properly.

Why don't you block all those social network buttons?

They can already be blocked with an ad blocker if you subscribe to Fanboy's Social Blocking List so there's no need to maintain a similar (and probably less effective) list.

Why don't you block cookie warnings?

No need. Please install the popular and free browser extension I don't care about cookies and almost all cookie and GDPR warnings will be gone!

I still see some location request pop-ups. Why don't you block them all?

Some location requests can not be blocked without breaking other website functionalities because of the way they were implemented. However, those can probably be blocked by changing your browser options. How?

Firefox instructions: go to about:config address and search for geo.enabled. Switch it off by double-clicking on it. That will change the value from true to false.

Chrome instructions: go to chrome://settings/content/location address and switch off the Ask before accessing option.

I still see some "allow us to send notifications" pop-ups. Why don't you block them all?

Some notification sending requests can not be blocked without breaking other website functionalities because of the way they were implemented. However, those can probably be blocked by changing your browser options. How?

Firefox instructions: go to about:config address and search for dom.webnotifications.enabled. Switch it off by double-clicking on it. That will change the value from true to false.

Chrome instructions: go to chrome://settings/content/notifications address and switch off the Ask before sending option.
