Opt In or Out of Google Search Ads on HTC One M8
Edited by Thor, JellyBean, Eng, Anonymous
Hello, and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we're going to show you how you can opt in or out of interest-based advertising when using Google search, on an HTC One M8.
- 13The first option is the one we want and the one that we're talking about in this video.It says, "Opt out of interest-based ads" and underneath, "Instruct apps not to use your advertising ID to build profiles or show you interest-based ads". This can obviously be a very useful function because it allows Google to show us advertising that may be more relevant to us and also, advertising that we might actually want to tap on. However, we may not like that Google is targeting us directly. We may want to opt out of this. Right now, we're opted in.
- 15However, if we want to opt out of interest-based advertising, we need to press down to turn this option on.It seems strange to turn something on that we want to opt out of, but this is what we need to do. The icon has turned a greenish, turquoise color. That means we have now opted out of interest-based advertising.
- 17This then, concludes our tutorial on how to opt in or out of interest-based advertising when using Google search on an HTC One M8.If you have any questions or comments about this video, or about the process that you've seen in this video, then please leave them in the comments section below. We shall answer them for you.Advertisement
