How to Block/Bypass CPA Lead Survey Ads?

Survey pop-ups are one of the most annoying stuff on the web, specially while watching free TV episodes. The sad part is some of the popular sites are killing their visitors by adding CPA lead and other survey ads. These types of ads can only be skipped after completing a survey. While most of the surveys are scams or requires money to complete, they are bound to get on your nerves. Sometimes, you might not have any alternative but to complete the survey. Not to worry, we have 2 simple hacks to bypass CPAlead survey ads which are explained in detail below.

1. XJZ Survey Remover Bookmarklet

a) Go to Survey remover and install the bookmarklet. I have tested it on Chrome and Firefox.

b) When you come across a CPALead survey popup, just click on this installed bookmarklet and whoosh, the survey popup is now gone!

They also have a Firefox add-on which you can install. The bookmarkelt works on CPALead, adscendmedia, cpalock and many other survey pop-over ads.

Important: Though XJX Survey remover looks legit and clean, I cannot completely white-list them. They themselves have some pop-overs (which are not annoying, but still they do have them) and also have sections explaining how to make money via authentic surveys, which all looks greyish for me. If you are uncomfortable with using their bookmarklet, check out the manual way of bypassing surveys.

2. Block/Bypass and remove Survey Popups – Manual way

Note: This is much more complex and geeky.

Tools Needed: Mozilla FireFox, Firebug add-on, Web Developer Toolbar

Steps to follow

1. Open the page and go to the Web-Developer tool bar and click “Disable” > “Disable Javascript” > “All Javascript”

2. Next, right click on the CPA-Lead Survey box and click “Inspect element”.

You will then see something similar to this

3. Scroll up until you see an iframe element.

4. Click on it, so that it’s selected and then click on Delete key. Voila! the annoying popup is now gone!

Sometimes you might be required to delete few more elements which cover the entire page. Delete them as shown above and you must now be able to see and use the required content.

The best part about this trick is that you can use it to unblock/bypass “Join/Become a fan/Like, to view…” pages on Facebook. Right click on the page and click on “Inspect element” and look for “visibility:hidden”. Delete the word ‘hidden’ and replace it with anything you like.
