Install AdNauseam on Chrome Without Google's Permission
Google has banned AdNauseam from its web store and have left users with no access to their data. Follow these instructions to install it anyway.
Back up your data
If you're a new AdNauseam user, or don't care about your saved ads, jump to Installation
- Click on the AdNauseam icon to open the AdNauseam menu
- Click the
SETTINGSbutton at the bottom of the menu
- Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click
The following instructions are for Google Chrome/Chromium ONLY. For other chromium-based browsers simply download the latest .CRX file and drag into your browser window.
Manual Install in Developer Mode
Download the most latest adnauseam.chromium.ZIP file from our releases page
Extract the zip file to a folder somewhere that it can remain
Warning: Do not delete this folder after the install; Chrome will disable AdNauseam if this folder is not in the expected location
In your Chrome Browser menu, click Windows > Extensions or type chrome://extensions/ in the address bar
Check the Developer mode checkbox
Click the Load unpacked extension button (see image) and navigate to the folder you downloaded in step 1
If you have previously exported your ads, you can retrieve them now
* Note that each time you restart Chrome you will be prompted to
Disable Developer Mode Extensions. Feel free to simply hit
Cancel and continue.
This is indeed annoying, as Google of course intends, however there is no workaround we are aware of at this time
Retrieve your saved data
- After you have AdNauseam up and running again, go back to the AdNauseam settings page
- Scroll all the way down again and click ''Import Ads''
- Choose your backup
- You're all set
