About this app

Why not try our next generation content blocker?

This application only runs on web browser
AdShield is an ad blocker & dns changer which supports WIFI, mobile connections, IPv4 and IPv6, that runs on your android phone & tablet. With advance interception technology, AdShield enables you to have an ad free web experience to see more of the content that you want. AdShield can blocks ads, banners, adult websites and more. It can also prevent advertisers from tracking your behavior and saves battery as well as data plan.

AdShield blocks ads on almost all browser, literally. You don't need to change your favorite browser to so-call "ad-blocker browser" for ad blocking. This application runs on almost all your favorite browser (include Chrome). *AdShield is not an antivirus app!

🧩The most compatible ad blocker on the market
• DNS-based interception (VPN mode) for most modern browsers (Chrome etc.)
• Rule-based interception(Enhanced Browsing) specially for Yandex Browser

Can I use another VPN application while using AdShield?
Partially yes. In this case, due to system limitation, you can only use Yandex Browser with AdShield extension (Enhanced Browsing) if you wish to continuous to use AdShield while you're using another VPN application.

Enhanced Browsing****
With our Enhanced Browsing extension, your browser can block more ads faultlessly: pre-roll video ads, pop-up ads, etc. (To fully block ads, you'll need Yandex Browser with AdShield's Enhanced Browsing feature.)

Still have questions? Check out FAQs:

Please note:
If you are using Chrome or Chromium-like browser(browser with data compression):
• Disable browser compression (data saver, optional for Chrome)
• Type in chrome://flags search for async DNS resolver (#enable-async-dns) and choose disabled in the drop down menu (skip for Chrome 89 or newer version).
Otherwise chrome could bypass AdShield which blocks nothing.
For video-site, you will need Yandex Browser with AdShield extension(Enhanced Browsing) to watch ad-free video.
If you are experiencing strange problems, please try to reinstall AdShield.

AdShield is NOT a VPN proxy which connects to remote servers that can masks your IP address. Your IP address will still the same when AdShield is activated.
We use VPN that connects to AdShield itself to identify ads and other unwanted contents. All interception is processed locally. VPN here is just a solution which allows AdShield perform block ads device-widely without root privilege. IT IS NOT A PROXY.*****

** As it only intercepts DNS traffic it is a fairly lightweight solution and does not seem to have any measurable effect on the battery life.
*** AdShield cannot block 100% unwanted content.

***** AdShield can't help you hide your IP address, if you want to keep a secret you must also hide it from yourself.

Works as described. Really good for blocking flashing ads that distract from reading web pages. There are still some ads, but they're not intrusive nor stuck randomly in the middle of the page. I read a lot of Chinese language books and they have prolific ads that are very distracting. AdShield works as described and has improved from my initial use from less than one year ago. Doesn't take up a lot of RAM and works silently in the background as any good software should do.

Works about 90% of the time. When working proper, very few sites will have ads. You got to follow the directions to make it work for Chrome. Also, it appears if Chrome needs an update, it disables Ad Block. The customer service was quick with a response, even on a Sunday. Would recommend* *please note this blocks pop up ads, video ads that appear at the bottom of the screen, and ads found on pages. It will not block ads from Youtube (the ones embedded in videos). Same with Facebook.

It promises system-level as remodal but, if you dig just a little deeper, it doesn't really remove ads from anything other than Chrome. I wanted it to get rid of Facebook ads, which is part of the system but, obviously, it doesn't do that. Also, the dns setup is extremely confusing and, sorry to say but, this app offers no benefits over using, say, Firefox with an ad blocker added-on, as a matter of fact, it's only functions seems to be slowing down the internet and marketing Yandex browser.

Hi, we are always looking to improve the experience for our users, and really appreciate the feedback. We never promise "a system-level ad blocker", on the top of store description "This application only runs on web browser". For more information about DNS, go to
