Technology Matters-Ad Blocking Apps

Technology Matters

    Adblock Plus blocks nasty stuff like malware and tracking that can hide behind ads.  Doing so helps reduce risk of malware infection, while enhancing your privacy.

    You can change settings at any time, so you can allow ads that are deemed more acceptable and less intrusive.  The app is free for iOS and Android.

    Purify is another efficient blocker available for iOS.  It allows you to browse up to four times faster and save up to 50 percent of your data usage.

    It also blocks those annoying ads that take up already limited screeen space on your mobile device.  It also has customizable settings.  The app is 1-99 for iOS.

    Stop Ads blocks annoying ads, suspicious scripts and having to wait for websites to load after banner ads are displayed.

    The developers claims it can decrease page load time by up to five times, thus reducing mobile data usage by one-half.

    Stop Ads can be synchronized across multiple Apple devices.  The app is 99-cents for iOS.
