The majority of websites and Android applications rely on advertisements to make a consistent profit. However, some advertisements may be offensive or harmful. Additionally, even the best Android phones, frequent ad pop-ups over other applications, the lock screen, and the homescreen can ruin the experience. Continue reading to find out how to stop advertising on your Android phone and tablet if you routinely have the same problems.
On an Android phone or tablet, unexpected ad appearances are never a good thing. You can block wallpaper services on the lock screen, disable pop-ups on the default Chrome browser, prevent unknown applications from showing full ad banners over other apps, and pay for a premium app membership to get rid of adverts.
Block redirection, advertisements, and pop-ups in Google Chrome
A pop-up and ad blocker is already included in Google Chrome to stop invasive or deceptive advertisements. To enable them on your phone, adhere to the procedures listed below.
On your Android phone, launch Google Chrome.
Open Settings by tapping the three dots in the top-right corner of the screen.
To the Site settings, scroll.
From the menu below, choose Pop-ups and Redirects, then toggle the setting on.
Return to the site settings and choose Ads.
Activate the toggle for ads.
Use one of the Android third-party web browsers instead of Chrome if you wish to prevent adverts when browsing the web because Chrome doesn’t offer an extension for mobile devices. Two well-liked Chrome alternatives that include ad-blocker plugins for Android are Samsung Internet and Firefox.
Ad filters may be downloaded through a built-in extension shop on Samsung Internet. Another ad-free browsing option for Android is Brave, another ad-blocker browser.
Verify the site alerts for Chrome.
Allowing every website to deliver real-time notifications to your Android phone or tablet is not a smart idea. Some websites may bombard the notification centre of your smartphone with irrelevant partner material in addition to giving helpful notifications.
Here’s how to stop receiving alerts from unused websites:
To access the I button, long-press the Google Chrome app icon.
Notifications are open.
the alerts for All Sites section.
Examine the list of permitted websites and the quantity of notifications each website sends each week.
Remove the list of unknown websites from notification permissions.
Block homescreen advertisements
Ads that show up on the homescreen are worse than those that appear in the notification centre or a web browser. Any app on your phone or tablet will display these full-screen banner adverts. To operate correctly, Android’s system enables app developers to request “Display above other applications” permission.
These permissions are necessary for apps like Messenger and Truecaller to display chat bubbles and identify incoming calls. But some shady applications con people into giving permission so they may keep sending them adverts on the homescreen. When you get these kinds of adverts, check your homescreen for the name of the app that delivered them. Once you’ve located those applications, use the instructions below to remove the permission.
To access the app details menu, long-tap the app icon.
to Display over other applications, scroll down.
Disable the setting that says “Allow display above other apps.”
Use the same app details menu to remove the app if you decide you no longer need it.
