How to Block ads in android apps apk 2022

 



Here's the good answers based on what 2-3 users have said on how to fully block ads on mobile:

You have to use both UBO + DNS ad blocking

  1. UBO is "a chrome extension that can block near all ads within Chrome or other browsers. UBO ONLY works in the browser."

  2. DNS ad-blocking can block ads that UBO can. This "includes all apps, games, consoles, tvs, tablets, IoT...anything that connects to the internet. " DNS ad-blocking cannot block all ads "because some services like Twitch and YouTube serve the ads directly from their own domain"


So which is the easiest and best DNS ad blocking software + tool to use?

Dunno. It doesn't seem like anyone else knows either.


  • "The DNS server that you enter in your phone is not a code, rather an IP address that points to a DNS server provider.

  • The job of a DNS server is to tell your phone where a particular website your trying to access is located.

  • The way DNS adblocking works is by telling your device that the ads domains simply do not exist. This works well if you are trying to block entire ads websites.

  • Often times, mobile apps and games include ads from other websites. In this case, ads can be blocked by blocking those other websites.

  • However, in some cases, the website operator may include their own ads in their website. In this case, since the website domain is the same, using DNS cannot prevent the ads from showing up.

  • This is where uBlockOrigin comes into play. uBlock Origin is a browser extension that can block all kinds of ads in web pages.

  • However, Chrome on Android doesn't allow you to install uBlockOrigin. For doing so, you need to use either Firefox on Android, Bromite, or another browser that supports extensions on Android.

  • **Which one is better to use, then?** The answer is: both!

You'll need to block ads at the DNS level for the games, apps, and anything that can't use uBlock Origin.

However, if you don't use uBlock Origin on your browser, you can't use the extended ads blocking capabilities on your favorite websites.

Using either without the other is not enough in order to get the best ad blocking experience.

  • What DNS servers to use? There are multiple DNS providers around. AdGuard has compiled a list of known good DNS servers to use:

"So how do you get this DNS adblocking numbers?

1-You an build your own device called r/pihole

2-You can signup with NextDNS

3-Or you can use controlDNS free adblocking DNS service: 76.76.2.2 but you can not pick and chose what to block or allow, they make the choices for you

Now put these DNS address in any device settings or directly in your router settings, now everything connected to your router will have DNS level ad blocking."

This user didn't know how to use rank the options from easiest to hardest.


"Only thing DNS does is map IP addresses to domain names. All ad-blocking DNS does is maintain a list of domain names that are known to serve ads, and instead of providing the real IP it provides an empty result, indicating to the client that that domain name does not exist.

Most sites serve ads from third parties like doubleclick, and they integrate those links to the doubleclick hosted ads into their main web page, so loading www.website.com will also load content from doubleclick.net. When your browser queries DNS for those two domains, DNS will reply with the actual IP for www.website.com and an empty result for doubleclick.net, indicating to the browser that that content doesn't exist. The browser handles that by just loading the parts of the page that it can, and leaving the parts it can't empty.

The reason this method may not work for for all sites is that www.website.com may decide to host their ads directly on their domain, so both the main content and the ads on the page all come from www.website.com. In that case, DNS can distinguish between the two types of content since it all comes from one domain. All it knows how to do it tell you the IP address for www.website.com, and if that domain has ads, then those ads will get served. Granted, most sites don't do this, but it's certainly possible.

The advantage of UBO in this scenario is that it can not only block all content from domains known to serve only ads, but it can also inspect the HTML and Javascript from the page itself and analyze that for indicators of ads are present on the site. It can actually dig in and modify the page content itself, which isn't possible for DNS based solutions.

The real benefit that DNS based solutions give is you can use them on devices that you can't install an adblocker on, like Roku and AppleTV. Also, you just set it up once, and it affects every device on your network, so you don't need to find and manage ad blockers for all of your devices."
