The original AdBlock - the last ad blocker you'll ever need. We've been blocking ads on iPhones and iPads since 2012 - we know our game :)
AdBlock allows you to block ads on your iOS device. Get rid of 99% of annoying popups, banners and video ads. Protect your privacy, limit bandwidth use, speed up your device, save battery and drastically improve your day-to-day iOS experience.
The most important advantages of AdBlock are:
• AdBlock works with Wi-Fi and cellular networks. You don't need to set it up separately for every network you use.
• AdBlock has a local DNS proxy service built in. Use it to see which domains you're device is contacting. Create your own rules and assign any IP address to any domain right on your device.
• AdBlock has enhanced DNS proxy rules export and import function. Share DNS proxy rules with other users, easily import rules found on the Internet.
• 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 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 comes with a very handy widget to quickly enable or disable DNS proxy on your device.

The applications AdBlock was published
in the category Utilities on 2014-03-16 and
was developed by FutureMind.
The file size is 18.04 MB.
The current version is 4.1 and works well on
10.0 and high ios versions.
In this release we've improved DNS proxy rules import and export. You can now easily share your rules by long pressing on the IP or any group assigned to it. When exporting an IP or group, the export format will now include information about contained domains and how they are organised into groups. Now you can also import rules from hosts files, coma and new-line separated lists and our own format (.adblock file extension). You can import DNS rules into AdBlock from URL or directly from other apps like Files or Dropbox. We've also improved the Safari Content Blocker with better rule handling and duplicate rule detection.
The DNS blocker is great but for safari ad blocking there is no way to whitelist a site which is very disappointing.
I still get ads on dailymotion.
I though I bought an ad blocker. But no ads seem to be blocked.
Wasted almost all of my money for this app and it doesn't even block anything. Good job.
App does not work!!
Simple and easy to use! It’s like an On/Off switch for blocking ad content; Webpages present a tinted-out rectangle to show the presence of blocked ads; Makes it simple to know if one needs to switch-off AdBlocker Well done, developers! This app’s a keeper!
Hasn’t been updated in a year and no longer functions correctly. Barely blocks anything. A waste of money.
the "DNS rules import" feature does not work. It will not block ads in apps. It probably works ok in Safari and other browsers but there are dozens of browser based ad blockers that work just as well or better than AdBlock (from FutureMind) and are completely free.
It’s amazing. Once I got the hang of how everything works it’s been one of the best apps I’ve ever gotten. I would like to say it’d be a cool idea if y’all started work on a robocall blocker as a feature with this app. Obviously that’s a bit different from ads but I thought it might be something you all could look into.
Hi, so i have just bought this app and its amazing when it works (I must say). The VPN just keeps on disconnecting from time to time and does not retain
Installed, got a DNS error when enabling.... Disabled and re-enabled no error reported on second attempt but didn't seem to block anything. Restart phone try again,still the same. Remove app and reinstall,no different. I guess it's just not working on ios 12.1? How do i get my money back?
This adblocker is very bad I was using a free adblocker and that was better than this. It is not blocking ads on my phone.
I still see ads, honestly I can’t see any difference between this and Adblock plus which is a free app.
I didn’t realise this app only works for safari, and doesn’t even work for YouTube in safari... total waist of money :(
Activated according to instructions, does not block any ads in any apps. Switched to a different ad blocker, which works perfectly. Don’t buy.
The new version is still a very clever tack on the original idea, and also works brilliantly. I agree with the reviewer who suggested a clean install of the app. The update didn't work for me either, but fired up perfectly after a deletion and fresh install. This version provides the user with total visibility of domains apps are contacting, and total control over which ones to block. In many ways, this version is better than v3. One of the best apps I've ever purchased. For those having a problem with the app, I would suggest a clean install after each IOS update. Adblock never worked efficiently on my device after an update, but worked perfectly again after a fresh install. Adblock team: you may want to check the app for IOS 12.0.1, it reports a config failure error after installation. Seems to be working ok though, and appears as expected in the IOS VPN settings (iPad Pro 1st gen).
This app is amazing it blocks almost all ads everywhere.
I downloaded this app for the purpose of blocking advertising but it didn’t do anything adds still around when I browse the net and when listen music or playing games.....
I installed Adblock, but still get regular ad hijacks in safari on iOS.
Like I said.... does not block those ads that lock up the site. Waste of money so far
App has been abandoned by developers and had fallen behind it's competition. It's a shame to see it in the top paid lists when it's not even the best and hasn't even been updated in a year.
I bought this app a pretty long time ago. It never worked. I decided to give it a try again, and it blocked about 50% of the ads. Most video and invasive ads were not blocked, while banners were. I used the free AdBlock app for a while and that blocked EVERYTHING. I really want to love this app but as of now it’s not worth it.
Whenever I try to do the vpn configuration it errors I’ll give it a 1 star till it works because so far this is a complete waste of money and time!
Ok so, I downloaded this app thinking it would stop the random videos popping up throughout the games I am playing. My friend recommended me the app. I paid for it with a gift card I had acquired, and I’m 75% sure that it charged me twice. My friend stated that the app removed many different videos in games she also plays. I downloaded the app, and I find that there is no difference. I would appreciate it if the developers gave me my money back, and I remove the app. Throughout the reviews they seem pretty well, but I saw one that says Apple stopped them from blocking the ads. Which is dumb? I’m paying money to block the ads, then the developers of the games I play make more money off of me? I feel cheated, but I can deal. I gave it a three star review, 1) because I think I was charged twice, and 2) because I don’t believe that this app quenched my needs. People seem to be blaming Apple for that, so I guess I will as well. Also this is the first review I’ve ever written, so I apologize if its a mess. Grammar is difficult.
I am still getting ads even tho i have it on
This app doesn’t work at all!!
This app doesn't block ads within apps. It creates a VPN to route traffic through and filters out known sources of ads but only works with browser traffic. Disappointed and I haven't found a way to request a refund.
Works flawlesly not only while browsing, but in all applications. Good piece of coding boys and girls! Many thanks.
Waste of money on IOS 9.3, advice is please update to IOS 10, how do I do that on an iPad mini?
