Activate hidden ad blocker in Netguard – Take a look at these tips, tricks, and solution you can use to make your life much easier with your devices whenever problems arrive and complications which you may find difficult to deal with.
Netguard is an application used to block internet access from other applications installed on Android. But in addition to this, it also has a “hidden” function which enables block advertising on web pages.
This option works in web browsers like Chrome The Firefox. The spaces of the websites with advertising will not load and will appear empty. The load of the web page will be faster and with less processing you can even expect a battery saving.
Activar AdBlocker the NetGuard
- From the menu button, top left, select Settings.
- Tap on Advanced Options.
- Activate the option that says Filter traffic.
- On that same screen, below, activate the option that says Block domain names.
- Return to the screen Settings.
- Tap on Backup copy.
- Select the option that says Download hosts file.
For the ad blocking to work in the Chrome browser, it is important disable data saving option that this app has.
It should be clarified that this feature of Netguard does not block ads embedded in applications. It also does not block advertising within the content of applications such as YouTube The Facebook. It is only a solution to not load the advertising on websites.
In case the ad blocking does not work and ads continue to be seen, wait about 10 minutes for the “hosts” configuration to take effect.
Download Netguard with Adblock
This option of adblocker has been tested in the version 2.71 (stable) of the Netguard APK. Such functionality may not be available in earlier versions. And although Netguard is available on the Play Store, it is possible that the version obtained there does not have this adblocker feature (because adblock systems are not accepted in that store). For that reason it is recommended download the APK directly from Github. To install this APK, you must first activate the installation of unknown sources on the device.
