Today, we are implementing a new policy to deal with malicious sites that actively threaten people’s safety on the web. **If we are prevented from protecting you from trackers on a site, we will treat the site as malicious and remove it from your web experience.** By filtering out malicious sites, we will enable sites that [respect human rights, effort, and experience](https://ind.ie/ethical-design) to rise to the top of search results.
The inspiration for this comes from a German tabloid, Bild, owned by Axel Springer. Last week, one of our customers <a href='https://twitter.com/dahanbn/status/758027299316965376'>alerted us that Bild was detecting Better and refusing people access to their site</a> unless they turned it off. This is unacceptable as turning Better means leaving yourself open to behavioural tracking and other web malware. As we’ve already seen, when [Forbes](/sites/forbes.com) did the same thing, [people who turned off their blockers were subsequently infected with malware served from Forbes’s advertising network](http://www.extremetech.com/internet/220696-forbes-forces-readers-to-turn-off-ad-blockers-promptly-serves-malware).

Bild chose to implement their blocker blocker in the core JavaScript file that runs their site. This means that we cannot trivially block their blocker detection without breaking the whole site. This is by design on Bild’s part. They want the site to fail if you are protecting yourself from trackers and malicious advertising. In fact, Bild has such low regard for their readers that [they their site doesn’t load at all if JavaScript is disabled](https://twitter.com/aral/status/758234563663495168)
