I am using Adaway & ads are blocked across different apps on my phone. However, Ads on Chrome Mobile are not getting blocked. Can someone help?

AdAway (root) SHOULD block all ad-hosts. So in my case, chrome blocks all ads on webpages because it can not load them cause of blocking the ad-host system wide.

Try updating the host lists in AdAway.

Unfortunately chrome still doesn't support extensions. You should look at Firefox if you want to block ads. Firefox for android support extensions just like desktop version.

  • Adaway is not a chrome extension! Commented Nov 13, 2014 at 17:27
  • I didn't say it is a chrome extension. Adaway like apps won't work for the browsers. So I suggested Firefox for you. Commented Nov 13, 2014 at 17:39
