• AdBlock allows you to create your own list of domains and synchronise your rules between all your devices using iCloud.
• AdBlock allows you to protect your privacy by blocking mobile trackers. Prevent Internet trackers from recording of your activity.
• AdBlock does not send your Internet traffic through any remote server. All of your connections stay direct, fast and secure. Ads are blocked on your device.
• Setting up AdBlock for iOS is very simple! Just download the app, and follow the tutorial to set everything up.
• AdBlock automatically updates to the latest version of the filters on every app run. We keep the ad servers database up-to-date for you.

AdBlock App Description & Overview

The applications AdBlock was published in the category Utilities on 2014-03-16 and was developed by FutureMind. The file size is 17.90 MB. The current version is 4.0.0 and works well on 10.0 and high ios versions.

AdBlock v4 is here. Please read the change log carefully...

This version of AdBlock for iOS, which brings a lot of major changes in the app.
First of all, we had to drop VPN based ad blocking. This was required to keep AdBlock in the App Store. To reward this loss to our beloved users, we've worked very hard to introduce the new DNS proxy feature, which now puts you in control of the domain name resolution process (basically it's a local DNS server). AdBlock becomes a powerful tool, which allows you to monitor which domains are contacted from your device. You can now assign any IP address to any domain, which puts you in total control of if and how you're accessing all kinds of content on the Internet. It's not just about ads anymore. You can use this features for much more advanced scenarios, including iOS app development and testing.
Second of all, we're introducing a Safari Content Blocker extension as an addition to our other exciting new feature. To enable AdBlock in Safari, please go to "iOS Settings -> Safari -> Content Blockers" and enable "AdBlock". Now you can use our app to subscribe to some of the popular filter subscription lists, like EasyList. You can also add your own sets of rules, including specialised and regional filters to fully customise your Safari browsing experience.

This is just the first of many releases from the v4 line of AdBlock. We're excited to bring you new features and we're not stopping here. Our goal is to put you in charge of your iOS device.

On top of the major changes, there is quite a lot going on under the hood. We've squished many bugs, enhanced iOS 11 compatibility and improved stability of the app.

Please contact [email protected] if you have any questions about the new features and how to use them. We're here to help!

Waste of time  Vincent munn  1 star

The new update doesn’t block anything



Their customer service is nonexistent and this app doesn’t block anything. Their new update actually defeats the entire purpose of this app. As of the beginning of October VPN is banned on Apple and rendered this app POINTLESS. I want to stress that you should not waste even $2 on this app. I wish I could refund just because how horrible their service is.


Used to work...  295418584180  1 star

Used to work really well, but now every time I have it on, I can’t even connect to the internet. What’s the point of blocking ads if it disables the whole connection?!


I was wrong  TonyKraft  1 star

No longer downloads filters, making it essentially useless.


Great app OLD VERSION UPDATE ONLY  Jadenfire  5 star

be prepared to have to down grade the app! If your updated to the junk 4 version this app isn’t worth buying! This app does not block ads in other apps as of V4 I’m rating it based off the V3 vpn version DO NOT BUY THIS APP now it doesn’t do anything any other free app can do ! Also again do not update!! (Downgrade is possible now long as u don’t update iTunes ...)


Was great, but....  pdiddyfan  4 star

Works well. Blocks some sites though, but oh well...


Now just a blocker for safari  Grammatron47  3 star

It lost its option as an adblocker for other apps with v4 and now focuses on just the browser which for me isn’t useful anymore. Uninstalling.


Too complicated  lincolnmoore  1 star

The new update isn’t user friendly. I once enjoyed the app for the simplicity but now I don’t think the app works. I have turned on things and have options to change dns? What the heck is that? Please consider dumbing it back down for me.

Crazy Freights

Doesn’t work, introduces network instability  Crazy Freights  1 star

It may have worked at one time, but that is no longer the case. Tried various sites and saw not a single ad blocked. On top of this, the local VPN causes my WiFi connection to be unstable or if disconnected but on interferes with cellular data connection. Don’t waste your time with this app, its moment is passed.


What?  111111111111222222222222333333  1 star

Somehow I get more advertisements and redirects while using fact, some that didn't use to show up showed up after this was activated... Or if I'm just mistaken, then at the very least, this did nothing to change my web browsing experience whatsoever.

@asianjunkiecom I use adblock plus for your site. Im sorry


Previous version was better.  DavidJames82  1 star

I know the developers had to compromise with Apple to keep it on the store, but now it just make it another regular content blocker. I like the VPN / dns feature before, but now it won't work or allow other apps to function because they won't allow it. Before this update they did. I hope there is an immediate fix or update soon to address all these issues.

Always disconnect with apps

Cannot black al ads so bad with updates  Always disconnect with apps  1 star

Always disconnect with it , do the improvement as fast as possible ! I don't want to give stars for this version! Pooor😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡v4 is so poor with improvement Pls update it as fast as possible


cool but..  Jo-Ker  4 star

is there anyway to the vpn icon in status bar it would be the greatest 👌


Just another content blocker now  Jeff48126  2 star

I loved this app, because it used to block ads everywhere on my phone, not just in Safari. But now due to the changes required by iOS 11, AdBlock performs like any other content blocker, like Purify, for 99% of users. Some power users will take advantage of the DNS proxy feature but I doubt the vast majority of us will bother.

Took my money  Taylor.   1 star

Basically took my money. I bought this with high hopes. Don’t waste your time.

Connecticut Yankee

v4 returns to blocking  Connecticut Yankee  4 star

Toward the end of v3, I thought I’d have to remove this since it wasn’t blocking anything. Don’t know why persons are saying this doesn’t block in other apps. I have two in particular I test AdBlock with and it’s doing its job wonderfully. One thing I’ve had to do is uninstall and reinstall it. I have a VPN app which was locked on. After deleting this and reinstalling everything is fine. Thumbs up!

Do you know or are you aware that this does not work on iPad Pro 12.9 in cellular/ WiFi?

montathar hassan

the last version is bad  montathar hassan  1 star

Last update is not good and specifically blocking all ads in addition to the logo vpn remains visible in the upper bar always and can not hide it as in the previous version .. I hope to fix these problems as soon as possible


A LIL HELP!  (Walter55)  5 star

Holy cow guys all this DNS, IP ADDRESS. Look I'm not computer savy, and this new ios11 update app looks great n all but all these settings and tech jargon are Greek to me. Seriously I have to take an IT class. Can someone explain all the new put this into this slot instructions???? Other than this it seems awesome I think???


Not worth paying for  xgh  2 star

Any number of free blockers I've used are more effective at blocking ads than AdBlock. iCab on its own is also more effective. Not worth a cent.
