UNINSTALLED this (cr)AP and telling the world to do the same.
It is not important to me if Android only reported 13 gigs of data but the cellular company had the correct usage. But if the cellular company verified it, then ADP really did burn 13 gigs.
I am not a fan of ads, but I will have to look for other options for Android if ADP continues this insane data usage.
Is there any way to fix this problem?

Are you connected to the internet 24 hrs per day?
I would expect Adblocker to run only while you were actually online.
If it only runs while you are connected and visiting other sites, why is it using so much data?
I am on a limited data usage per month and this would really hamper my use of the internet.

false: it's a feature you can disable
it's all about non-intrusive advertising (and again ... you can disable it)

For adblock to work correctly and to stop ads and pop ups, all the data has to run threw the app.. So even when u are watching YouTube, all the data goes threw the app, and then to the YouTube app.. Same for if u download something, it goes threw adblock and gets downloaded.. So that 1.46gb of data ur talking about, isn't just adblock, it is ur total data for that day ..
