How do ads work on Symbaloo?

Why Ads?

Why does Symbaloo allow ads?

In order to provide our users with Symbaloo PRO and accounts for free, we rely on advertising from trusted sponsors.

We do our best to ensure advertising is non-intrusive and does not affect your overall Symbaloo experience. With your help, we are able to continue making improvements to our products, provide great support to our users, and keep our paid PRO+ accounts affordable to educators!

How to remove ads

Remove Advertisements with Symbaloo PRO+

Enjoy an ad-free Symbaloo experience by subscribing to a Symbaloo PRO+ account (starting at $49/yr)!

Are the ads safe?

Are the ads safe?

We fully understand the importance of ensuring advertisements are appropriate and trustworthy for our users. Because of this, we have implemented strict guidelines for ad delivery to our users.

What we are doing to control ad content?

We only work with large, trusted ad networks with well-established policies on ad quality (like Google AdSense)
Internally, we have deactivated ad content from all sensitive categories (adult, dating, politics, gambling, etc.)
While we cannot review every ad (there are thousands!), our team does our best to manually review as many ads as possible

These actions should prevent our ad servers from delivering inappropriate ads. However, if you do encounter an advertisement that you believe to be unsuitable, please contact us immediately by sending a screenshot to

I don't trust this ad

There are only a few places where ads are displayed on our platform. At this moment (October 2017), you may see them:

1. Occasionally on the right side of the Symbaloo tiles
2. In the Symbaloo gallery: a rectangle and a leaderboard
3. In the Symbaloo gallery: occasionally a skin ad
4. Wallpaper background ads

If you are seeing advertisements that appear untrustworthy, contact our support team for assistance. Please email screenshots to

Our Ad Policy

  • No inappropriate ads
  • Ad placement should never overlay content
  • Ads removed on all Symbaloo PRO+ accounts

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Symbaloo PRO is now available for FREE to all teachers because of support from our sponsors. These accounts may include some non-intrusive advertisements and occasional promotions from sponsors we think you might be interested in. To enjoy all of the benefits of PRO without ads, upgrade to a Symbaloo PRO+ account (starting at only $49/year)!

Co-Creators is Symbaloo PRO’s newest feature and it was originally recommended by our users! This allows multiple people to collaborate within your account to build webmixes or make changes at the same time. Co-Creators can access or edit from anywhere, whether it be from within the same classroom or on opposite sides of the world!

Learning Paths are the perfect way to move your lesson plans to the cloud! Teachers can embed resources, articles, videos, or even quizzes into a gameboard-style webmix that makes learning fun for everyone. While students make their way through the learning paths, you are provided with real-time statistics for each individual student to track their progress! Find out more here.

With our newest version of Symbaloo PRO, we have removed the limitation on the number of students allowed within an account. However, each PRO plan is designed to be used in a particular setting: classroom, school, or district. If the visitor traffic on an account indicates overuse based on the subscribed plan, you may be asked to upgrade your plan or provide a valid explanation for overuse.
