A couple of weeks ago I wrote a resource full list of Ad blockers available for different type of devices.
It included ad blockers for smartphones, including both iOS as well as Android.
And in the post, I also mentioned that Google Chrome will be drinking their own ad blocker natively to the browser to block intrusive ads, well it is finally here now and this is how you can enable in Chrome for Android.
How to enable native ad blocker in Google Chrome
When you open Google Chrome on your Android smartphone, tap on the three horizontal dots that appear on the top right-hand side. (it will appear at the bottom if you have moved the address bar to the bottom using this article).
Tapping on that field open the menu where you will be able to find Settings. Simply tap on settings, then go to site settings which can be found under ‘Advanced’ section.
Keep scrolling until you find the ‘Ads’ option. Tap on it and use the toggle button to Enable or Disable the Ads.

Keep in mind that Google Chrome ad blocker will only block intrusive ads, which means the ads that do not follow better at policy.
I would like to mention that techtippr.com is also supported by ads and we support better right policy, so you can use Google Chrome ad blocker without affecting our website.
Why would you want to use an ad blocker?
There could be the many reasons you would want to use an ad blocker on your smartphone while browsing websites.
If you are into downloading stuff from the certain websites, you might have noticed they are very aggressive when it comes to Ads you tap on a single link and three different links are opened in your browser.
As much as they are annoying they also consume your mobile data, so by using an ad blocker on your smartphone will not only give you a nice User experience but will also save your precious mobile data.
Lastly, I would like to point you to the huge resource full list of Ad blockers in case you want to use on your other devices is there.
