Samsung Internet has built-in support for ad blocking extensions. It is very useful for blocking annoying advertisements.
To enable it, open the Ad Blocker option and tap to download and install any of the extensions you prefer. You will be redirected to Google Play Store to install the Blocker app on your phone.
You can also enable the pop-up blocker to block any pop-up ads and remove intrusive ads.
In this guide, we have shared the steps to install and enable ad blockers in your Samsung Internet browser. You can choose your favorite ad blocker to install.

Turn On Ad Blockers on Samsung Internet
First, we will install the ad blocker extensions currently supported for the Samsung browser. Here are the steps:
- Launch your Samsung Internet browser.
- Tap on the More menu at the bottom of your screen.
- Choose the Adblockers option from the menu list.
A window with multiple ad blocker options will appear on your screen.
- Tap on any of the Ad Blockers from the list to download.
It will navigate you to the Play Store, and you can download an ad blocker extension from there.
Don’t worry about which one to select. All of these ad blockers are best in class and offer phenomenal ad-blocking services, which include blocking:
- annoying pre-roll video ads
- ads that hide and then appear
- ads that suddenly appear
- ads that waste data
- sexual ads
- pop-up ads
- forced redirects ads
However, using the blocker also hurts the publisher’s ad revenue, which is displeasing.
After installing the ad-blocking app on your phone, you need to open it from your Apps Library and customize it per your needs.
Block Pop-up Ads in the Samsung browser
One of the best ways to block annoying and misleading ads is to block the pop-ups. Thankfully, the Samsung Internet has a built-in option for pop-up blockers. Here are the steps to block pop-ups:
- Launch the Samsung Internet app on Android.
- Tap on the More menu and select the Settings menu from the list.
- Choose the Sites and Download option menu.
- Switch the toggle for the Block pop-ups option.
Based on the toggle switch status, the pop-ups will respond in browser.
After enabling the ‘Block pop-ups’ switch, it will stop the pop-up ads.
However, please do note that it won’t completely block all ads. If you want to block all the ads, follow the previous method, which uses third-party applications.
I use AdGuard content blocker because it works well, even on media consumption websites. It blocks mature ads with its unique algorithm, which makes advertisements family-friendly.
It is true that when you use adblockers, website revenue will take a massive hit. Because most websites provide free content and use advertisements to cut operational costs, if you like or want to support websites like “BrowserHow.com,” you can add our site to the allow list option to display minimal ads.
