Getting ad blocker on school chromebook

Memo1010

For whatever reason, the schools have decided to block ad-blockers from the Chromebooks, in perhaps their most stupid and embarrassing decision yet (they make that kind of decision a lot). I can't get them from the Chrome Store at all, and I don't want to download them from some fishy website. Anyone got any idea how I can get ad blockers on this thing?

Read as: “boot a Linux Live usb with persistent storage”

Sounds like it could be fun, but maybe check the school policy to be sure no major rules (or laws) are broken.

A USB drive, maybe?

I'm not sure that would work, I already had one on chrome when they blocked it, it just stopped working entirely

Then I’m afraid I cannot help, sir.

If it's blocked then even going to a different website to download them wouldn't work as it's probably blocked as an extension.

I was able to get it by adding my own personal account to my chromebook, but I had to boot into developer mode to do that.
