Only works on safari
Right out of the gate, i have nothing wrong with this app. I use the chrome extension all the time on my computer and it works super well. I wanted it on my phone so i could watch videos and such without ads, but i use the Google app instead of safari since it’s better in every way. Unfortunately the app only supports safari, and i haven’t found a way to make it work on any other browser app. 5 stars for function, 1 star for cross compatibility.

Works great for me! Having ability to select sites I want to see ads for sales/ promotions, and ability to decide which sites those are, AND to access that site when I want; I.E.: my phone service carrier website needs to be in my "Whitelist" to access when I want... Keep that in mind if AdBlock is on, without enabling "Allow Non-Intrusive Ads", as you may be unable to access a site. That's how I discovered my phone carrier was blocked. Simply go into AdBlock's Settings and add any websites you need to access &/or want ads if not accessible at 1st. It does a really good job keeping other ads from appearing while accessing/ reading in other apps which used to constantly annoy me!

I started to go on this app and I thought it was good. But when I pressed the "Enable" button, The app crashes even though I have a iOS 17.4.1. It also crashed again when I pressed Enable it in another language, It crashed again. Whe I changed the language, It stayed Chinese even though I changed it to herbrew. Even though it was Chinese, It was english. Now people in another language that you prefer will not understand english. [Some people will not understand english in another country. ] So I deleted this app because it was crashy when I pressed a word called "Enable" and other like that. I download a gooder ad blocker it was called Privacy Pro, privacy pro worked on my other apps. It worked by blocking the ads. You guys made this app not able to use on iOS 17.4.1. And also never updates when it is 2024.

Recently deteriorated
AdBlock works extremely well on my PC. The app also worked above expectations on the iPhone, for a good long while. In the past 7-8 months AdBlock must be getting partially funded by annoying insurance companies and companies that continue to destroy the fabric of your community by renting out housing, that is no longer affordable to locals and long lengthy “info”mercials. I have gone through and reset buttons, deleted and reloaded the app, been in touch with AdBlock in attempts to clear up the malfunctions, all with no success. Seems others have been experiencing similar. I do donate and was happy to do so. Will keep AdBlock on my PC. As far as app for the iPhone, I have begun my search elsewhere. Would consider returning once the reviews begin to state otherwise.

Works for me with Edge
I use Edge as my default browser and this significantly reduces redirects while I’m browsing. I noticed only because I started encountering redirects seemingly randomly again in Edge. I then realized that iOS had offloaded this app. I reinstalled it and the redirects were reduced again. Very impressed. I’ve always appreciated this particular developer and the app and extensions that they create for adblocking. It’s one of the the first things I look for and install whenever I download a new browser or get a new device.

Add Block is awesome
I wrote a recent review called Add Non Block and gave it one star because after downloading the app I continued to get a constant bombardment of annoying pop-up adds. Add Block responded with great advice. They explained how to make some adjustments in the app’s settings. Their advise was easy to follow and I made the necessary adjustments. Just like that, the Adds stopped completely. I haven’t had one since. I’m sorry I gave it one star. This app is totally worth 5 stars and I’d like to thank Add Block for their great advice. The app is awesome and I highly recommend it.

Not really free
I was kinda tight when I tried to boot up this app. I’ve never had to pay for ad block before, so when it finally brought up a payment screen I was confused. It then said that payments are optional, and you only need to pay what you feel like. Well, I’ve never paid for this service, why start now? I put in $0 in the “other” section, and it immediately changed my $0 to a $5. I guess payment isn’t as optional as they would like you to believe... In my opinion, that’s borderline false advertising, and very disappointing to see from a service I have enjoyed until now on other platforms. If your app is free, make it really free, if people will have to pay, tell them that straight up, don’t try to hide it.

Blocks Too Much; Not Great on Mobile
I’ve always only used AdBlock and not any other ad blocking extension. When I found out that I could get it on my phone, I immediately downloaded it, and it started working right away. However, it doesn’t just block ads, it also blocks any other content on the page (pictures, videos, charts, etc.) I’ve tested this by going to websites with it on, and then with it off and sure enough only when it was off could I see all the content. I’m disappointed because I’ve always known AdBlock to be the best ad blocker extension for web browsers, but I guess that isn’t true for iOS.

Stopped being able to download
I used this app, and while it wasn’t the greatest for stopping pop ups, it was great at everything else and worked a treat. But I had reset my phone, and upon trying to reinstall the app, it keeps on asking me for payment info that I don’t feel comfortable giving. I don’t see why this was asked of me when it wasn’t asked of me before, so I’ll be moving to a different service.

It was working fine until recently.
It was a godsend that all the ads were block on safari on my phone and I didn’t have any issues until this past week. The ads are back. I went through troubleshooting instructions and nothing rectified the situation so I’m not really sure what to do.

Doesn’t seem to work at all on iOS 15.
I followed all of the setup steps to the letter, and I can’t get this content blocker to work at all. I’m running iOS 15.0.2, on a 2nd gen iPhone SE. The instructions in the app, when setting it up, doesn’t work. All I get is a toggle switch in the Safari Content Blocker page that says “use content blockers on all websites”. I never saw the three switches that this app tells you to turn on. If you’re running iOS 15, don’t bother with this app. It’s a waste of storage until the developer updates it for iOS 15.

App does not work
I’ve done everything correctly according to the app instructions, but this app does not work for me at all. It actually makes things worse, because it takes away the option to skip the ads, so I literally have to watch the whole ad for it to go away. I am also using safari, which it states is compatible, but so far it’s anything but what it states to be. I would suggest anyone looking at this to find another adblocker.

Adblock for educators - so appreciated
I am so appreciative for this app. It makes teaching using examples from the internet a joy. It allows my nervous system to slow down and absorb what I’m reading and I can hear my own thoughts when I’m contributing to a conversation. Ad free internet space is to the digital life what forest bathing is to real life. We need space! Thank you AdBlock for stepping in!

Blocks the annoying “You’ve been selected as a winner” ad.
I’ve tried all of the iOS ad-blockers, including the premium ones yet none were able to block the intrusive pop-up ads (“You’ve been selected as a winner,” etc). This is the only app that I’ve found is able to completely block ALL advertisements.

Have used for quite awhile. Once every so often I disable just to see all the ads that it blocks. The new update has an interesting feature of new kittens (my selection) replacing ads (that I guess AdBlock can’t completely remove) which is surprisingly cool.

AdBlock’s whitelisted ad sites are horrible!
I love AdBlock on my computer, so I was hoping for the same on my iPhone. Sadly, I learned I can’t customize AdBlock on my iPhone as I can on my computer, so all of AdBlock’s whitelisted, and very grotesque, ad sites like Outbrain, Taboola, etc. (i.e. Those ads with the grotesque pictures.), are still showing on my iPhone. It doesn’t block everything as promised, and I would rather pay for an ad blocker that actually does block those whitelisted grotesque ad sites than use AdBlock for my iPhone.

Recently stopped working
I’ve really appreciated this ad blocker for the time I’ve had it. I also have been using it on my laptop for a long time too! But within the last week it has stopped working completely. I was confused at first and thought I might have disabled it in my phone settings. No, all three selections are on and I’m getting ads and video ads. I came here to see if others were leaving similar reviews and they are.

A recent problem with ads
The ad block plus has been working fantastically up until a month ago when Vrbo ads keep pushing their way through and are the most annoying thing in the world. A few other have come through in 2021. Please fix this to blocks those ads again.

Didn’t work on safari
As many others I use the extension on my laptop and wanted no ads on my I phone, So I downloaded the app and I followed all the steps required. (Searched the app on safari then downloaded it) I then after open Crunchyroll application only to find out that the ad blocker DOES NOT WORK! p.s Also reason the title has a does not work on safari is because a lot of previous review stated that the blocker didn’t work for on any other browser than safari.

Change a setting, and it suddenly no liner works
It worked completely fine up until a day ago, when I removed a website from my whitelist due to the new, aggressively intrusive nature of their ads. Suddenly, no more ads were blocked at all. Attempts to change it back or to turn off Acceptable Ads entirely doesn’t change a thing. Still get constant ads. Yes, I’ve read the Apple Support thread they link, before the dev tries replying with that again.

Excellent ad protector, but only on safari
This ad protector is really excellent because it is most popular for safari. I like to block advertisements in safari and I’ll never see ads ever again! Also, this ad protector does not block ads in other applications.

Does not work on IOS
Ad Block works perfectly fine on my PC. After downloading it to my iPhone and iPad into Safari, it simply does not work. I reinstalled 4 times and it still does not block ads. There are so many ads on any given site, I cannot view the data as ads pop up all over the page. Help!

I guess it works fine with most things, but if you are looking to download it to block ads in games and other things like that, then you are not in luck. I would not recommend this to my friends if they were looking for a adblocker like I was. (No hate to the creators of the app or anything tho)

I already used ad block on my chrome book and it works just fine it works for safari but not for apps like btd battles and other apps I already stated that I may be stupid so if it doesn’t work like that just let me know if it is supposed to 3 stars but If it wasn’t programmed to do that 5 stars

It used to work great, now it doesn’t work anymore.
I’ve had this app for as long as I can remember, maybe close to two years, it was working great and yes it will only work with safari but now it doesn’t block ads anymore and I just recently cleared my safari browser data and cookies and it still didn’t fix the issue. So for those of you that it doesn’t work for anymore it’s time to find another app.

Just doesn’t work
This is one of my only reviews ever on the apple store and I’m just fed up with none of these ad blockers actually working. I usually go to a super pop up and ad infested site to test these mobile ad blocks out and most work with some ads but this one blocked nothing when I tried it out. Wouldn’t mind donating some money to any of these if they would actually block ads but I guess the malware and ad people are just miles ahead in technology.

Note: This review is only for the computer Chrome extension for now
This literally the BEST Adblocker I have EVER USED! Although I have not used the app yet, I have high hopes for it considering the Chrome extension (only for PC/Mac). I will post an update here when I test the app.

An essential tool for using the internet
Does most of what it set out to do, most importantly in screening out a large fraction of unwanted ads. Unfortunately, Google and others have figured out circumventions and lots of unwanted, unauthorized ads creep in. A for effort, B+ for effectiveness.

I don’t have a rating...
It doesn’t block all ads. That’s the biggest problem I’ve had, pop ups still occur frequently. That’s kinda the purpose of the app right? Most of the ads that it doesn’t block are pop ups, which for me are the most annoying. I mean it’s okay other than that, but the instructions when you first enabled the app could be better instructed.

Downloaded it for one reason and failed
I got it cuz a site kept having popup ads all the time. One of THOSE sites. This company is amazing on my PC with Chrome, so decided to use it on my phone for Safari. Blocks 0 ads. I only added a second star from customer loyalty given my past with using this on my PC. TLDR: Get this for PC, but idk about iPhone!

Adblock app.
I am looking for help with my ad block prescription. It wants to use Safari. I don’t use Safari. I want to change it to Chrome. It is not a choice. It only gives me Safari. I don’t want this app anymore. I can’t seem to cancel it. I can’t seem to find Help to cancel it. There’s no one there to help. don’t use this app. It is deceiving and does not give you decent customer service.

Significantly slower with AdBlock
