How to disable ads in BlueStacks 5

Why do I see ads?

Ads help keep BlueStacks 5 free and contribute towards our delivering the best possible gaming experience for you. We humbly request you to keep ads enabled as a show of support for other gamers and to ensure that playing Android games on BlueStacks remains free. 

NOTE: Ads shown on BlueStacks 5 do not obstruct your gameplay by design, they also do not impact the game's performance or graphical quality in any way.

However, if you still wish to disable ads, you can head to the "Settings" menu and disable the option within the "Preferences" tab.

How can I do this?

1. Launch BlueStacks 5 and click on the gear icon on the home screen to access the "Settings" menu.


2. Under the "Preferences" tab, click on the toggle button next to "Allow BlueStacks to show Ads during gameplay".

3. You will now see a pop-up informing you to keep ads enabled. However, if you still wish to disable ads, click on "Disable" to proceed.


4. Once you have made the selection, click on "Save changes"


You can now continue playing your favorite Android games without any ads on BlueStacks 5.
