How to disable advertisements in Android apps without rooting? Is there a working option?

    If you are using an app that does require internet access (ie angry birds etc) then turning off your data and/or wifi will stop most if not ALL adverts. Once finished, just turn on the wifi/data as required. Might save a bit on the battery as well.

    Use AdBlockPlus - free Android app.

    You might also try airplane mode or disabling data connection only, however this is not so effective for apps that are requiring continous internet access. It's generally useful when playing games

    just don't be scared to root it.... you won't loose anything and you'll get so much in return...

    What do you mean 'Android Apps'? Do you mean free version of apps that are ad supported? Or does your actual Android installation have ads everywhere?

        If the free apps are themselves ad supported, then there is no way to disable them unless there is some sort of ad buy out, usually for a fee, or a full version of an app, usually without ads.

          Adblock Plus would not block ads in free apps?

        • Adrian Bagnato

          No, the Ads are built into the app.

    if free applications comes with advertisements then you will have problems in using them if you try to block associated advertisements

    If there are ads in the notifications centre most of which is from Airpush,you can opt out from it by visiting the link below -

    Try manual opt out as the app solution doesn't works as tried by my friend.

      Follow this advice. Just put your phone IMEI no. and submit it. This is what resolved my problem atleast.

    I got Adblock Plus (ABP) app for android. It has been developed by the same people who developed the mozilla add-on. I've checked it and it works great with many apps and even your browser. But beware, it eats battery like pacman eats the dots. So i usually turn it off and only use it when i need it.

Ads by Google
