How to turn off Google and Facebook's ad personalisation
While we unfortunately can't control which ads show up for you on the websites you are visiting (more about why below), we can guide you to your ad preference settings in Google and Facebook if you're feeling inundated by Yuppiechef ads.
- You have the option to turn off Google’s ad personalisation in your Google account settings.
- You’ll still see ads on websites that choose to show them, but they won’t be specific to your previous browsing history (i.e. cookies and sessions in your browser).
- You can control similar settings in Facebook.

Below is a bit more detail about why we sadly can’t do anything from our side other than sharing the ad preference guidelines above, which will hopefully help you understand it from our point of view.
Why you're seeing Yuppiechef ads
The other websites on which you're reading articles and seeing ads have chosen to fund their work by being part of the Google Network to Display Ads. Facebook has a similar ad partner network to show you ads within the app. The ads you’re seeing are determined by Google's systems based on all your browsing activity (yes, through cookies) and picked from a pool of many advertisers that are paying Google to show their ads on this network. If Yuppiechef ads were not showing there, someone else's ads would be (very likely another online store you visit) unless the site owners of the articles decided to stop showing ads altogether. Or, in the case of some news sites, readers with memberships don't see ads.
