How to block ads on your new Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge

If you’re picking up a Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge soon, you’re probably ecstatic (I certainly am). We have some news that may sweeten that fact for Galaxy S7 fans who also happen to not be fans of ads. Adblock Plus has announced that its ad blocker app, made to work with the Samsung browser, will be available as soon as you pick your new, shiny Galaxy S7.


The developer has quickly worked to getting its app functioning in the Android Marshmallow version of Samsung’s software, which the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will run out of the box. Just bear in mind that the ad blocker is coded in concert with Samsung’s browser, specifically. So the app won’t benefit Chrome users or any other third-party browser.

If you’ve never used Adblock Plus, don’t worry, it’s not complicated. There’s just two steps to get blocking. After you install the app, in the Samsung browser, go to: More -> Settings -> Advanced -> Block content, and then turn it on. That’s all!


If you want, you can choose for acceptable (nonintrusive) ads to still go through or just block all of them completely. Also, there are a couple other benefits that come along with it.
