Good News – Hoax-Slayer is Now Ad-Free!

by Brett M. Christensen

Great news!  To enhance your privacy and security and offer you a better user experience, Hoax-Slayer is now completely ad-free.

I started Hoax-Slayer in 2003 as a service to the Internet community. Back then, I never would have believed that I’d end up dedicating decades to the project or that it would become such an important part of my life.

Over the years, I have been able to fund Hoax-Slayer by displaying ads provided by Google. Ads have allowed me to keep the site online and continue to publish accurate, up-to-date, and totally free information about hoaxes, scams, malware, and Internet security issues.

But the online advertising landscape has changed. Advertising providers have become more and more aggressive and invasive. Ad systems such as Google Adsense increasingly encroach on the privacy and security of Internet users.

Because of these issues, I am no longer willing to display ads on the Hoax-Slayer website.
