Focus only on your emails and wipe out the noise added to your inbox by Gmail ads. Please note that Gmelius does not deactivate the automatic Gmail filtering and scanning system which allows Google to parse for keywords in your emails and then match and serve targeted ads when you browse the Web. For more information about Google ads, please read the Google Privacy section.

Gmelius Philosophy about Ad-avoidance

Besides the fact that hiding ads makes your inbox more readable, Gmelius implements such an option in order to decrease the amount of information we are forced to consume on a daily basis, pricing so higher our time and attention. The latter viewpoint is well summarized in this New Yorker article.
