Summary
Urban Social Network Adblocker is another great product by Urban Cyber Security. 

Our vast experience in online security allows us to offer our advanced Social Networks ad-blocker. – we can’t use this name, as Urban Social Networks AdBlocker already exists as another extension.

Our Firefox Extension users enjoy:  

- No Ads as part of your social media browsing experience, eliminating feed ads, video ads & banners.  

- Optimized browsing speeds, due to the savings in bandwidth, the overall download size and server calls are reduced by skipping ads altogether.  

- Unlike most other Social Networks ad blockers - Urban Social Networks Adblocker does NOT replace original ads with new ones;  

Get back to enjoying what really matters on social media, your friend’s content! Just click “Add to Firefox” to install the extension, and you are set to surf Socials' feed as you wish! 

To enable us to block unwanted ads, we need to access and collect certain information, such as: URLs you click, the ads displayed for you and your interaction with the ads, history, click stream data, and IP address.

Safety
Risk impact

Urban Social Network Adblocker requires a lot of risky permissions and is not safe to use. Avoid installing this add-on unless you absolutely trust this publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Urban Social Network Adblocker is probably trust-worthy. Prefer other publishers if available. Exercise caution when installing this add-on.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Firefox add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Firefox add-on reputation on Firefox Browser Add-ons, the amount of time the Firefox add-on has been around, and other signals about the Firefox add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Firefox add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

Manifest

The manifest file declares the requirements and permissions that a Firefox add-on will have access to. By reviewing the manifest, you may be able to determine if a Firefox add-on is over-reaching (for example, if an extension is overriding your new tab page, or search provider, or requesting access to your web activities without any good reason).
