Why and how to block ads on Android · 2020-03-31 13:10 by Matthew Garcia
Everyone can admit that these days we have become dependent on our mobile devices. And it doesn’t matter whether you use android or iOS: we carry these beloved devices everywhere we go and use them for just about anything, from checking emails and watching videos, to social networking and online banking. And doing all this can make your data privacy vulnerable to ads that can steal the information stored on your mobile device.
Another problem with ads is that they may infect your android device through sneaky malware that can be hidden behind ads – this is known as malvertising. This malware can install itself sometimes even if you don’t click on the ad, which could seriously compromise your data privacy and possibly affect your device.
So, you’re probably thinking, how can I block ads on android and avoid all this? Thankfully there are several ad-blocking options for android users. The most effective way to stop these ads is by using a web browser that allows you to block ads within their settings, such as Google Chrome, Opera or Aloha.
To claim the most control over their internet browsing experience, Android users can install the Adblock Browser app for Android. Adblock Browser is a mobile internet browser that has built-in ad-blocking features, and allows users to disable cookie tracking and anti-ad blocking messages in the settings. With Adblock Browser, users can even visit social networking sites such as Facebook and YouTube and enjoy their experience ad-free.
If you’re someone who stuck to using Samsung Internet, the default web browser for most Android devices, another option is to install Adblock Plus for Samsung Internet . This works as an extension to the existing web browser, and can be enabled in the Samsung Internet app settings under “extensions.”
By using a good, reliable ad-blocking web browser such as Adblock Browser, or adding that extra security with the Adblock Plus extension, android users can enjoy the internet on their mobile devices without ads, and feel secure that their data privacy will remain protected.
