Muting “reminder ads”

Google has also introduced a feature to its advert settings that lets users mute reminder ads in apps and on websites that use Google’s ad platform. Reminder ads are advertisements for a product that you browsed for in the past.

“We plan to expand this tool to control ads on YouTube, Search, and Gmail in the coming months,” said Google[3].
