How to remove advertising on Android

Removing advertising on Android is very easy to achieve, and by advertising on Android I mean, if not all, almost all that appears when using the device: the advertising that appears when browsing with Chrome, the advertising that includes the free apps…

You can get rid of all that at the stroke of a pen and in the simplest way possible. The only thing that escapes is very specific advertising, such as some YouTube ads, where they are sometimes abused. But you can always watch YouTube through a browser.

This ‘trick’, however, has its downside, and that is that although advertising on Android can sometimes be excessively annoying, it helps free access sites to exist or many of the free applications you download to do so. Without that income, they probably wouldn’t.

You already know this, but I’m telling you because unlike iOS, advertising on Android can only be blocked at once, that is, you can’t choose which apps it disappears from and which ones it stays on. It is all or nothing. That is why you should consider whether to apply the change that I propose or not.

For example, if what you are interested in is only eliminating the advertising on Android that appears when browsing, replacing Chrome with another browser with a built-in blocker will be enough. You have a choice: Brave, Firefox, Vivaldi, Opera… You don’t need to do anything else to browse freely and without advertising.

Now, if what you are interested in is also removing advertising on Android that appears in free applications, follow these steps:

  1. Open system settings and look for the ” Private DNS” option , which is usually found in Advanced Internet preferences.
  2. Add the following URL to the “Private DNS provider hostname” option: “”.

And voilà , goodbye to advertising on Android except in certain applications such as YouTube or some social network with its own advertising systems, etc.

Keep in mind that you will be redirecting all your traffic through Adguard’s DNS , which in principle are reliable, but to which you will be entrusting your privacy (before you entrusted it to another provider, generally, to your service provider). Internet).
