    Whenever I go on Safari, there's a bunch of ads on a webpage I go on. It's not the usual amount of ads but it's like, for example, 4 ads on Youtube instead of the usual 1. Also, when I go on Wikipedia, there are hyperlink ads in the article on random words and sometimes when I click on a link, another tab for an ad pops out of nowhere. Does anyone know how to fix my problem?

    Download adblock, it's an extension for Safari.

    I've tried both of these. They only stop the ads that are on the webpage. They don't stop the hyperlink ads or the ads that pop up into another tab. The ads also show up when I use a different web browser like Chrome.

    Now it has gotten worse. On a Youtube video, the screen becomes black and it has an ad like the ones on the side. It's not like the regular Youtube ads.
