Just like on our PC, Google Chrome is the most widely used browser worldwide on our Smartphones as well. For many reasons Google Chrome has won the hearts of people since its system is easy to use and is extremely fast. But something that often bothers us, these are the uncomfortable ads that are run right when we are seeing something that we really like.

Unfortunately, the mobile version of Google Chrome does not allow us to install extensions through the Google Chrome Store, and for this reason, we cannot install Adblock on our mobile or any similar extension to avoid having to run into those ads. But the good news is that if there are certain ways in which we can use Adblock in Google Chrome mobile and here in Celulares.pro we are going to teach you how to do it.


How can we use Adblock in Chrome for Android?

Adblock plus is a modified version that fulfills the same functions and has the same interface as the original version. The application as such is called the Kiwi Browser and you can install it from the Google Play Store.

Kiwi Browser is the way you can have Adblock on your mobile as it is naturally impossible because the extensions were not created for mobile, but for PC, thanks to it we will end annoying ads on our cell phone. Follow these steps that will help you have the app on your mobile.

  1. Open Google Play Store
  2. Search for "Kiwi Browser".
  3. Press "Download" and wait for it to finish.

In this way we will already have the application on our mobiles. To install Kiwi Browser on mobile, do it as follows.

Install the AdBlock extension from the Kiwi Browser app

Once we already get Kiwi on our Smartphones, we can now choose to search for Adblock in the Chrome store to avoid all kinds of ads. Once the plugin is downloaded you must follow the following instructions:

  1. Click on the 3 dots that are in the upper right part of Kiwi Browser
  2. Go to " Extensions "
  3. There, we will activate the extension (Adblock) and automatically all ads will be blocked.

Steps to set up AdBlock in Chrome on Android

After we have Kiwi Browser, the whole installation process on your Android phone is the same. With Kiwi, we will be able to install all the extensions that we need in Google Chrome Mobile. What we have to do is go to the details icon in the extension and in this part we will be able to see access to extension options, that's where specifically we will be able to see all the options that we have from Adblock for Google Chrome .

Mobile browsing without ads

So we can enjoy browsing with peace of mind when we use Google Chrome on Android, we can unlock the ads we want when we are on a certain website or block those that are simply causing us discomfort or in turn block pop-ups, thanks to this we will win time and productivity in what we are doing since if we allow all the ads to invade us, closing each one of them will take us a long time.
