How to Block Ads on Android Mobiles


Unwanted advertising can be even more annoying on a smartphone than on a computer due to the limited screen space. Several applications can block ads on an Android handset. Your options vary depending on the way you currently use your phone; to an extent, you can reduce the prevalence of ads with native browser tools.

Firefox Browser

  • Download and install the Firefox Browser for Android app from the Google Play store (see Resources).
  • Open Firefox on your phone, tap the menu button, then select “Tools”, “Add-ons” and “Browse all Firefox Add-ons.”
  • Use the search box to find Adblock Plus and select “Add to Firefox.” This will block content known to come from advertisers.
