Here is how to use Google Chrome's native ad-blocker on Android

16 May 2018 4

If you are an Android user, there is a good chance that you use Google Chrome for browsing the internet. It is the default browser on the majority of the Android devices and since it offers deep integration with Google services, it makes sense to use it. But as it happens with online browsing, there are ads which can interrupt and even ruin the whole browsing experience.

This is the reason ad blockers have become quite common nowadays but it is easier to find ad blockers on PC than Android. So if you have been looking for an ad blocker for your Android device, Google Chrome has one for you built-in. Here is how you can make use of it for having a better browsing experience,

Step 1: Launch Google Chrome browser on your Android device. Tap the three-dot icon to reveal options and choose Settings from the list.


Step 2: From here, tap on Site Settings option.


Step 3: In this menu, scroll down until you find Ads option.


Step 4: This will show you a toggle which should be disabled by default. You need to enable this toggle to activate the native ad-blocker on Google Chrome.


This way, you can enable and use Google Chrome's native ad-blocker on Android. The only thing to keep in mind here is that it will not block all ads. It will block only those ads which do not mean guidelines set by Coalition for Better Ads. Such ads have been found to be intrusive and annoying which eventually ruin the whole user experience. In other words, this blocker will save you from such ads while allowing you to support websites which rely on ads to pay their bills.
