Here's An Easy Way To Avoid Ad Harassment On Android Phones

Nobody likes to see ads unnecessarily. 

In any case, these days, each and every individual who purchases Android telephones gets such an annoyance as well. That means ads will pop up from time to time while using the phone.

Attempts are being made here to make four bucks by occasionally showing ads. One way to stop this was to 'root' the phone. Or install some apps that claim to be defensive. 

Tech websites, including XDA-Developers, are introducing a technology that can be easily tried without having to go through both of these programs.

Private DNS settings

The first thing to do is to find the private DNS settings in the phone's settings. This is usually hidden in the 'Network and Connectivity section of Settings. It can be placed on each phone in a different way. 

If you do not find what you are looking for then just search for Private DNS in Settings. If you do not find this setting, you may find it unfortunate. It's available  in versions of Android 9.0 and above

Private DNS provider hostname

Once the private DNS is detected, tap on it. There are three options. They can be Off, Auto, and private DNS provider hostname. In this, select the private DNS provider hostname. Type dns.adguard.com here. (See screenshots.) 

This is Adgard's DNS server. This may be enough to block ads from reaching your phone. At the same time, each app may continue to show ads. For example Chrome browser or YouTube. The above action is not sufficient to prevent ads in these. At the same time, public advertising harassment should be reduced.

In browsers

If you are using the Chrome browser, open the app and tap on the three dots on the top right. Then go to the pop-ups and redirects settings and make sure it is off. Next, go to Site Settings. Go to Ads there. Make sure this is also off.

If Advertising annoyance persists in Chrome, install add-ons such as Adblock and Adblock Plus (AdBlock, Adblock Plus) for AdBlock. Or download and install a browser like Brave with Adblocker and start using it. Brave is becoming one of the best browsers in the world in terms of customization and defense. Brave is available for iOS and Windows.
