Is it against Adsence TOS to open the ads in a new tab?

    I have a wordpress theme that you can past a code to appear in bottom or in the begging of an article and a option to select to open in a new tab.
    I have use that before and I didn't get my ad acc banned.

    My question is If I can open the ads in new tab without directly modifying the code is this OK and if it is is there any WP plugin that can do this for all google ads?

    Are you guys seriously telling me after all these years that you can't use a wp plugin to open ads in a new window without incurring some sort of penalty if serving Google Ads? Seems like such a fundamentally necessary function.

    It is almost counter productive in my mind that one would not have ads open in a new window as that eliminates most opportunities to sell them again but you did accomplish your goal by making money from their visit.

    I have other ads open in other windows but adsense says they are not infatuated with that process and rather than risk the account, to me, it makes sense to follow their rule.

    I have seen big sites all of them that use adsense when you click on the ad the ad opens in a new tab.
    I will risk it and make the same. Do anyone know any plugin that does that?
