About Us

The B2 team has been developing online products and services for over 20 years.

As pragmatic privacy advocates, most of the team was using ad blockers to avoid being tracked around the internet at every step of the way. In doing so, it became obvious that the majority of online publishers that depend on advertising to fund their “free” content didn’t have reliable ad block counterattack solutions to overcome this problem.

 

B2 was developed as an ad block monetization solution, with a view to using our ad blocker detection software to help publishers recoup ad revenues, without compromising the privacy of their users (41% of internet users aged 16-64 use ad-blocking tools to protect their privacy).

 

Today, B2’s services act as a powerful ad blocker shield that protects the business model of online publishers in a way that respects today’s robust privacy expectations and legislation.
