Popular Broswer Plug-In Adblock Plus Is Now Available For Android

Adblock Plus today announced the launch of the latest version of its popular ad-blocking software, designed to work on Android smartphones and tablets. The FREE app is available at the Google Play app store or from the website, and is the first ad blocker for Android that doesn't require a rooted (jailbroken) phone.

Adblock Plus first gained popularity as a browser based plug-in used for blocking annoying ads on your PC. The application can be set to block all online advertising when browsing, and when using your favorite apps. Now the service is available for use on your Android device.

Adblock Plus for mobile works exactly the same as the browser extension, blocking all intrusive ads on your Android device. It blocks all online advertising when browsing, and blocks in-app advertising in popular apps such as Facebook and Angry Birds. Adblock Plus blocks: mobile ads, video advertising, banners, push notifications, display advertising, HTML5 advertising, and much more.

While the new App doesn't require your device to be rooted the application delivers different levels of functionality depending on the Android version that runs on your device and whether your device has been rooted/jailbroken.

Here’s what you can expect:
  • Rooted/Jailbroken: Blocks ads everywhere, over Wi-Fi and 3G
  • Non-rooted with Android 4 (or later): Blocks ads over Wi-Fi
  • Non-rooted with Android 3 or earlier: Some manual configuration is required. Please visit the ABP website to learn how to setup your own proxy.
  • Also, Android does not allow ads to be blocked on SSL encrypted websites.
