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.
Bunch of bs first thing popping up in app was an ad negative stars if I could
So i see this app has not been updated in a year. Id like to see an update to it because the amount of apps i see is frustrating. I’ve heard great things about this app but i dont see the results.
This app seems really good and nice but I still seem to have adds either on YouTube or other casual games and I’m really confused, I’ve swiped the Adblock and it does not seem to be working.
Didn’t block YouTube ads
Complete garbage, does not block a single ad! Tried this on several devices and with several apps. Does not block ads in safari either which the free apps do but this paid app is garbage
I’m only writing this review so the stupid app will quit asking me for it. It works great, OK?
This app works well. I have to “refresh” the VPN from time to time and I wonder why.
If you’re a normal person and use the google chrome app, DO NOT buy this piece of crap
I switched AdBlock on in the Safari settings but it blocks no ads - a circus of ads still pops into my face, including many pop up ads that obstruct the content, on every web site I visit. Paid $2 for something that doesn’t work. Under California law Apple has to issue refund. Taking my money for nothing is illegal. Someone should bring class action against Apple.
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.....
Just bought the app to realise it shows a vpn symbol meaning you are unable to use your own VPN at the same time as having Adblock active.
If it worked it would be fine but it keeps asking to update and at the end it won't enable it, it keeps saying its disabled.
Does not stop ads. At all. Never. Does nothing A useless piece of ... Deserves no stars at all. A black hole.
I thought this would block ads on my Instagram. It hasn’t.
I have yet to have this app successfully block any ad or pop up !! Do not purchase
Not worth $2. I want a refund...
It doesn’t work.
This app required import DNS Rules, it’s effective with the most apps. You can enable DNS Logging and enter in DNS proxy log for create rule for domain block.
I couldn’t get it to work. I installed it and I still got ads. I tried installing Crystal（which is half the price) and Crystal worked right away. I’d suggest trying Crystal.
ADS STILL KEEP ON POPPING UP IN YOUTUBE
This app does not even work lol waste of time and space in my iPhone and plus money
I’m letting you keep my money because it can be phone that the problem but now ween I’m writing this Apple made it bad were it do not work have the time but maybe can refund so I can have my $2 doller back if you can
When I first bought it, it worked fine, now it regularly turns it's self off, or just does absolutely nothing for blocking 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?
