Imagine watching a video or reading through an article or a blog, and all of sudden an annoying popup ads and redirect ads are appearing in the browser. This happened to me most of the time. These annoying and intrusive ads are mostly from the advertiser and publishers who are just to make money out of the online business. While the publisher does not have full control, but mostly the advertisers are the ones who ruin the user experience.
Advertisement is the primary source of income for most of the content creators and online publishers. However, there is also a group of people who’s intent is to just mislead and spam the user experience with intrusive ads to make money. This also leads to scamming and even adult websites without consent.
Hence, the in-built Chrome Ad Blocker helps in blocking these types of ads and allow only legitimate ads to display. It won’t completely block the ads on a website that you’re visiting, however, it will limit the number and may also clean the browsing experience if needed.
I personally keep the ad blocker option enabled all the time and it’s been really helpful to fight against scammers.
How to Enable Ad Blocker in Chrome Android?
As I mentioned, the in-build ad blocker option does not block all the ads on the website, but only curtail the misleading and vague pop-up ads. After all it a good option to start off in the Chrome browser.
Here are the steps to enable ad blocker in Chrome Android:
- Launch Google Chrome App on Android Phone.
- Tap on menu for options.
- Select the Settings option from the available list.
- Scroll down and tap on the Site Settings option.
- Within Site Settings, select the Ads menu.
- Turn OFF the Ads toggle button to block ads.
- If Ads toggle is disabled by default, just turn ON and switch back to OFF again.
Please note that, if you turn ON the toggle then intrusive ads won’t be blocked.
The spammy popup ads will be blocked after you enable the option. It will also help to safeguard your data and protect from hacking and redirect spam.
Hence, make sure you always keep the Ad-Blocker option enabled in Chrome Android. There is also an option to disable the pop-up using pop-up blockers in Chrome which I think we have to keep enabled.
