How to block ads on Android apps and games for free

As you will see in the video, some apps or games have a fee for not showing ads on their apps, but even after paying you still get bombarded with unskippable ads every few seconds. Some of those ads will even force-install the apps they advertise, redirect you to Play Store or a website when you try to close them, not have an option to close them at all (and have to force-close the app) or even freeze your entire phone.

In this article (and video) we demonstrate a free tool (Android app) on how to get rid of these interruptions so you can have a more pleasant experience in the apps.


  • I recommend using this tool if you’ve already supported the developers of an app or game but you’re still seeing ads.
  • This tool is great for highly intrusive pop up ads that cause instability in the app or phone, or if you have privacy concerns
  • Some developers only use ads as their revenue, so they can keep providing a fully featured app for free, so please use this sparingly on select apps.
  • Make sure to check the Bypass function in this article to allow ads / normal user experience in your other apps.


  1. Install the free Blokada 5S app on your Android device.
  2. Tap the Power button to Activate from the Home tab.
  3. In the Advanced tab (the box icon), tap on Apps.
  4. Tap on the apps you want to "bypass", so you can keep this effect running only on the apps you need. 
  5. If some apps don't work after activating Blokada, then use the above setting to bypass them.
  6. You may have to close the apps and reopen them after activating Blokada in order for the blocking of ads to work.
