    "this app helps with blocking ads so that you dont have to constantly view ads you dont want. It takes just a bit to get used to but the browser is great in all aspects."

    "This definitely won't get you out of seeing personalized ads. Many places don't even offer that option. Localized android settings can only do so much."

    "I hate ads. Really hate them with the power of a thousand suns. So I installed AdBlock Plus and it works great for me. No more intrusive ads. However lots of sites have figured out that people use ad blockers and don't let you see the content unless you turn off the ad blocker. Very frustrating. I wish AdBlock Plus could find a way around that."

    "A great minimal Adblocker, this will block most ads from appearing while browsing the internet on your phone. It has all the settings you need, including stopping videos from auto-starting."

    "I'm used HTTPS Everywhere for some time to improve my security. Reading the fine print, I don't think I was as protected as I thought I was, but I don't think it could hurt anything either. Something's better than nothing."

    "I love uBlock Origin. So many ads bring virus and stuff to slow your computer down. With the adblocker, I don't have to worry as much about it. It is awesome."

    "If you want to protect your identity and Opt-Out from Seeing Personalized Ads you should try Ghostery. It hides your ID and allows you to block ads and social media trackers. It is a great way to keep big brother and companies from finding out too much about you."

    "I'm sure I'm not alone with being annoyed by the constant adds online. I can remember when there were no ads. Glorious days! Free Adblocker Browser allows me to almost go back in time. It blocks most of the personalized ads and allows me to enjoy the internet."

    "AdAway works well to block ads on my phone. It does require root, so if you don't know how to root your phone, it's not for you. Also, it will not block an ad if it is from the same domain as the main content on a page. Overall, though, it's a useful app."

    "I kind of like this program because it doesn't work all of the time. I think that it blocks a majority of the ads, but then there are some that also get through. It will freeze on occasion which can be quite annoying and usually when I am in the middle of a big project."

    "I am online all the time. It seems the ads are getting worse and worse. I was looking for something to cut this down. I installed Popup Blocker (strict). it seems to have made the Ads go away for the most part. No I can browse and not worry about these awful auto play videos that I hate so much. It is tha best one I have used so far. I am very happy."
