Block ads for good from your Android device with Adblock Plus.

Let’s talk about ads.

Yes, yes, advertising powers the modern web and without ads a lot of websites simply wouldn’t exist. We know they pay the hosting bills, pay the writers, they help keep a lot of videos, articles, cartoons and other content free and we can definitely appreciate that.

So while most of us don’t mind seeing ads, most of us don’t want our devices infected with annoying malware that tries to force us to mine for bitcoins for some maniacal hacker in Estonia, either. That’s where Adblock Plus comes in.

Adblock Plus gives you better control over what ads you have to deal with while browsing. Want to support your favorite trusted websites and don’t mind seeing some annoying ads? You can disable Adblock on that page. Browsing lots of random sites that serve up all kinds of horrible ad-related nastiness? Adblock will keep on blocking those ads and keeping you safe.

The best thing about Adblock Plus is that it doesn’t require your device to have full SU (superuser privileges, also known as “root”) to work. You just download the APK file to your device, install it and you’re good to go! It’s very important to keep in mind that Adblock won’t be able to block every ad, just most of them.

Also keep in mind that this app is always running in the background while you browse so it’s going to suck up a lot of power. If you’re working with an older device or one with limited battery life, you might find yourself recharging more often after you install Adblock Plus. This isn't a problem for most users, but it is something to look out for.

Aside from that though, this is one of the best adblockers for Android out there. You won’t need a rooted device to run it, it only takes one step to get it set up and there are no extra configuration options you have to work with to get it working. We think that alone makes it worth checking out, so grab it today and see what it can do for you!

Pros

  • Doesn’t Require a Rooted Device to Run You can run Adblock even if you don’t have SU privileges on the device.
  • One Step Setup All you have to do is download the APK file and install it to yor phone or tablet.
  • No Extra Configuration Needed You can add specific whitelists to get more out of the app but it’s not necessary.

Cons

  • Won’t Block All Ads on Your Device Adblock generally blocks 95% of ads across the internet, but some will find ways to sneak through.
  • Power Hungry App Adblock is a resource intensive background process, which means it needs a lot of power to detect and eliminate ads.
