This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
The original AdBlock for iOS and 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 for iOS 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 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 for iOS 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.

What's New in Version 4.0.0
AdBlock v4 is here. Please read the change log carefully...
This version of AdBlock for iOS, which brings a lot of major changes in the app.
First of all, we had to drop VPN based ad blocking. This was required to keep AdBlock in the App Store. To reward this loss to our beloved users, we've worked very hard to introduce the new DNS proxy feature, which now puts you in control of the domain name resolution process (basically it's a local DNS server). AdBlock becomes a powerful tool, which allows you to monitor which domains are contacted from your device. You can now assign any IP address to any domain, which puts you in total control of if and how you're accessing all kinds of content on the Internet. It's not just about ads anymore. You can use this features for much more advanced scenarios, including iOS app development and testing.
Second of all, we're introducing a Safari Content Blocker extension as an addition to our other exciting new feature. To enable AdBlock in Safari, please go to "iOS Settings -> Safari -> Content Blockers" and enable "AdBlock". Now you can use our app to subscribe to some of the popular filter subscription lists, like EasyList. You can also add your own sets of rules, including specialised and regional filters to fully customise your Safari browsing experience.
This is just the first of many releases from the v4 line of AdBlock. We're excited to bring you new features and we're not stopping here. Our goal is to put you in charge of your iOS device.
On top of the major changes, there is quite a lot going on under the hood. We've squished many bugs, enhanced iOS 11 compatibility and improved stability of the app.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about the new features and how to use them. We're here to help!
v4 update makes the app half as useful
With the v4 update, this app lost half of its usefulness where it used to be able to block ads in other apps and not just in Safari. Now this app just becomes another Safari content blocker, except that this app is not free as the others are. And it’s hardly unintentional that the update log failed to mention this important change.
This update does bring the new DNS control feature, but the majority of the regular users wouldn’t have the time/energy to type in each and every ad server IP address for ad blocking purposes.
Doesn't Work Anymore!
Don’t update. I saw the update 3 days ago, and decided to see if anyone had reviewed it before downloading, and supposedly it’s worse than ever. This app has been virtually worthless since V3, but still does work only if I toggle the able/disabled function several times. It actually works until I charge my phone, and then I have to do the process all over again. I have an SE 64GB, and most complaints come from those with the 6 and 7 models. I’m not updating, and I’ve actually paid for other ad blockers which are worthless, too. I believe the free ad blockers are probably the best at this time.
v4 returns to blocking
Toward the end of v3, I thought I’d have to remove this since it wasn’t blocking anything. Don’t know why persons are saying this doesn’t block in other apps. I have two in particular I test AdBlock with and it’s doing its job wonderfully. One thing I’ve had to do is uninstall and reinstall it. I have a VPN app which was locked on. After deleting this and reinstalling everything is fine. Thumbs up!
