Editors' Review

Adblock Plus for Android extends the popular Adblock Plus browser extension to Android devices. Like other versions of Adblock, the Android app blocks banner, pop-up, and video ads while allowing others, including sites whitelisted by you. Adblock Plus for Android is free.

Pros

Effective: Adblock Plus effectively blocks annoying ads, including video ads that start playing as soon as you browse to a site.

Easy to configure: In most cases, the default EasyList filter subscription and automatic network configuration will handle most issues, making Adblock Plus a cinch to start using.

EasyLists: EasyList and other filter subscription options are available for Dutch, German, Italian, and other languages.

Help and more: Adblock Plus for Android includes extensive instructions, tutorials, and other resources drawn from Adblock's extensive online support community and user base.

Cons

Download difficulties: Since Adblock Plus downloads from its own site instead of the Play Store, some users might find it more complicated to download and install. We had no trouble with our Android 4.3 phone.

Rooting: Devices running older versions of Android might need to be rooted to run Adblock Plus. Rooting your device can violate its warranty, disable updates, and cause other apps to misbehave. For experts only.

Proxies: You might have to configure any proxy settings manually on your device, which could be an issue if it's a company phone. Be sure to check before policy issues arise.

Bottom Line

With more than 200 million downloads, Adblock Plus has proved effective in Firefox, Chrome, and many other applications. It's now available for Android, and we recommend it for any user who is tired of intrusive ads.
