You must have come across with some VPN apps that promise to block ads and some of them work pretty well. Using these VPN apps you can even block ads in iOS devices. But there are some downsides. First, These VPN apps drain a lot of battery power. Second, VPN apps are not free and the third reason is you can’t be sure about secure connection and privacy. It’s possible they track your data and activities online. If I Compare to AdBlock Plus, this works without proxy stuff; and it also does not require root, like AdAway app does.
How to Block in App Android Ads without wasting Battery Power
So here’s a new app that will block ads system wide from all of your apps and drains a lot less battery power. While This app uses the same VPN system to block ad servers but this app does it at DNS level which means only the tiniest bit of data is being filtered. So basically only initial DNS requests are filtered which is good for the battery and great for your privacy.
The best part is that this app is open source which means it’s completely free, secure and ad free. But the only requirement is that your Android phone or device should be running on Android Lollipop and above. It’s a constantly updated Android Ad blocker and It can block ads in Chrome, Moviebox, Firefox Browser, UC Browser, Popcorn Times, Showbox HD, Spotify and pretty much block ads in every Android app.
