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.
I was implied this app can also block ads on other apps like Youtube but it only works on web browsers. If this has worked on apps outside web browser, this would’ve been an easy 5 star. It does offer settings and filters but there’s no manual to instruct how to use certain features.
I was very excited to find this app, after trying numerous. But low and behold, no matter what I tried, this adblocker never worked. Not in games, apps, safari, nothing. I tried everything but didn’t seem to block any pop ups, or random page ads.. disappointing.
This app doesn't work as advertised.
I purchased this to block the ads on Words With Friends. It doesn’t work, and I have emailed customer support eight times and all I get back is an automated reply saying they got my message and “we’re on it.” It’s also slowing down my google searches... aaaaaauhh!!! Noooo!
Does not block game adds total waste of money
Bought this thing due to being tired of YouTube ads and was hopeful that it would work. Using the YouTube app and I still get every single ad. If there is a way to fix this I would love the help
Only works on Safari... You can't use a different app...
I spent $2 because I was tired of seeing YouTube ads and other ads in my apps. The description says it blocks automatically in all these apps, but it only works in safari. I contacted the developer for help, but never got a Reply. I cannot find any help online either.
Yes, I enabled everything correctly.
I need to change my ip to any other. Please tel me how to do that.
One of the best apps I've ever purchased. Just thought I’d give it another boost. Those complaining it doesn’t work have no idea what they’re talking about, it works with everything, including iOS apps and games. Don’t give something a bad review simply because you don’t know how to use it. I shouldn’t have to tell you this, but turn on DNS logging, then create a rule for the log entry appearing after the in app ad first appears. The address will usually have *ad* in it. If you are not certain about an address, google it, the community will have the answer. Good grief people, show a bit of initiative ! Or ask someone with some skills to assist you. Everything on my device is completely ad free, but as developers amend ad servers, you must also adjust your Adblock rules. I’ve shared my rules with my entire family and they are also ad free. Yes, the older version of this app was better for n00bs, but it sometimes blocked content I didn’t want blocked, hence I prefer the complete control over DNS permissions this version offers. And PS, an auto disabling VPN is a network issue, not the app. I installed the gadget and it now restores the VPN when I view the weather and all other gadget info each morning.
This app did not block any ads for me – for example when browsing the YouTube homepage on safari the first thing I see is a targeted ad for a political party. Not happy at all. The app itself constantly pops up requesting for App Store reviews as well when trying to navigate it. Well Adblock, here’s your review you kept nagging me for. Your app stinks – do better.
i recommend installing app admin if your jailbroken, and selecting 3.0.1 build version of this app, as it was the last version that setup a fake VPN before apple changed the rules on this great company.
Reading it over and I was hoping to block pop ads and banners on other games and apps. Only works with Safari
Doesn’t work like it should, still got ads every time I’d like a refund
It used to block YouTube in video ads but doesn’t seems to work anymore.
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.
Whenever an app asks for a review, it gets one star. This app asked me for a review the first three times I opened it, before I have even used it. Give me a break.
Specifically bought the app so I could block at least some of the ads on my apps. Did absolutely nothing
Es muy buena aplicación lo único malo es que tenes que desactarlo si queres saltear un anuncio en páginas de acortadores
Used to work about a year an a half ago, was worth the $3. Now, ads slip in everywhere.
Didn’t do anything to get rid of ads. Want a refund for this waste of time and money it’s a ripoff.
When I first got it, it worked ok, but I'm back to getting a bunch of unwanted ads.
Don't waste your money on this, it's not blocking ANY ads in any of my browsers, and it charged me twice, too -- the second time was 30 days after I bought it. Uninstalled it now, and I wish there was a way to get my money back. 😒
I downloaded it thinking it would block all the ads on safari and in apps. It does not block any ads on safari or in my apps. Useless purchase I want my money back
My favorite Adblocker. Developer is legend.
my apps still has ads 🙄🙄
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?
