How to Install Adblock Plus on Android


Are you getting tired of browsing through countless intrusive and annoying ads? Looking for an ad blocker for your Android smartphone or tablet? Adblock Plus is your most popular option, and the most reliable one. When it was first launched, AdBlock Plus was available directly from Google Play Store, but that didn’t last long. Google removed it because of interfering with other services and products.

Of course, you can still install and configure AdBlock Plus, but the steps are a little more complicated.

Follow our guide down below to see how to install and configure AdBlock Plus on Android devices.
