You could think about using Spotify Premium. As it is the non-free product offered by Spotify itself, it is not really an ad-blocker, but it does give you what you want. You won´t get any ads, and you pay very little compared to the large wealth of music offered. You mentioned that you would also pay for an ad-blocker.

I found that Pi-Hole suits my needs. It's gratis It's open source it supports all hardware and platforms, because it blocks ads on DNS level. simple and easy to use: the clients do not need to install any software. They will be configured via DHCP automatically. Hardware cost: 1 Raspberry Pi 1A, 1 SD card (4 GB is enough), 1 power supply. Total less than ...

At this time, uBlock will meet your requirements the best. uBlock matches your primary requirement of "The ad blocker which can block the most ads" very well. It is specifically designed to handle very large blocking lists with minimal impact. Almost any ad blocking program will reduce the amount of time it takes to load a page, because it will block ...

Before uBlock Origin, there was the original AdBlock Plus by Wladimir Palant. That extension remains available in Firefox (just search addons for it). It includes an option (enabled by default) to allow some non-intrusive ads.

As long as you don't mind going through filters rather than the GUI there is a very easy way to do that with AdBlock Plus. How to do it: Install AdBlock Plus restart browser if required Go to Tools->Adblock Plus->Filter Preferences (or just press ctrl-shift-F) Go to Custom Filters tab add new rule and use this as the rule: @@$document,domain=~...

Since there doesn't appear to be an extension that does exactly what you want, here is an alternative. You can try PrivDog. It basically blocks the harmful ads (ones that do not originate from the webpage's domain) and only displays the ones from trusted sources (ones reviewed by AdTrustMedia and authorized by the webpage's publisher). This will also speed ...

Adblock Plus already allows by default some ads that aren't obnoxious and otherwise behave. If you had something that randomly clicked on ads you'd be at great risk of getting malware. It's great to want to support sites, but it's not worth the risk. Using Adblock Plus should be sufficient. If a site wants to make money from their ads being displayed they ...

The best stuff out there is uBlock Origin. It supports so-called "cosmetic filtering" in addition to run-of-the-mill static rules. Be sure to install the latest development release for that, though - the filtering language is getting closer and closer to being Turing-complete with each build. Procedural cosmetic filters can now be chained and ...

Adblock Plus now copes with Facebook's stealth ads through it's EasyList filter. All you have to do is enable that, or manually ad facebook.com##DIV[id^="substream_"] ._5jmm[data-dedupekey][data-cursor][data-xt][data-xt-vimpr="1"][data-ftr="1"][data-fte="1"] to your custom filters.

The difficulty with a meme blocker is that it's hard to identify which images are memes and which are non-meme kitten pictures. Probably your best bet is to use a text-only browser mode. On Chrome, Text Mode seems a good choice: In my test, it does block those images on the blog post. It doesn't put a red X over them, but it does allow several options for ...

Adblock Browser should work. It's completely free and it requires iOS 8.0+ (so it's not compatible with iPhone 4, but it is with iPhone 5) and does not restrict usage to any specific iPhone/iPad/iPodTouch model. Here the website. If you need something compatible with iPhone 4 you should try with AdBlocker Browser with Chromecast Support since 2012 which is ...

Although not GDPR-specific, I Don’t Care About Cookies removes cookie warnings on websites. It is available as an adblock filter list or a separate extension. https://www.i-dont-care-about-cookies.eu/

If we are talking about web browsing, I've been using Firefox with uBlock Origin. It works like a charm. My first goal was to have an ad-free YouTube, which I think is impossible to have with the official app, but the user experience in Firefox is really good. On a related note, I have not been able to reproduce this on my iPad, because the iOS version of ...

I'm not 100% sure there are tools that do both of those but often, for onsite overlays Behind The Overlay is good at blocking them. Put this in conjunction with uBlock Origin and you should get rid of most of the pop-ups, but sadly, no-one has made an extension to prevent nuisance popups.

You should try AdAway if your device is rooted: https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2190753 The app modifies the device's hosts file so ads get blocked on system level, you don't have to do it per app. It's free and open source so you have nothing to lose (or fear).

uBlock Origin is a customizable browser extension that can block almost any content, including porn ads. Since, by default, uBlock Origin blocks most ads, it should also block any ads promoting pornography. uBlock Origin is free of cost (gratis) and is open-source. It works best in the Firefox web browser from Mozilla, due to functionality available in ...

The most effective non rooted ad blocking solution is blokada. It runs a vpn and blocks all the ad request using dns blocking. It blocks ads across all apps. You can download it from its website or from f-droid.

Alternate partial solution: Disable internet access to apps that don't need internet for your use. Settings--> Apps--> Permissions, now disable both wireless and data access to those apps. Only give permissions to browsers, messengers .. that must need internet access. It's a long manual work but this I found most effective so far. Browser Solution: Use ...

The current state of the art is to use regex filters with PiHole. (^r[[:digit:]]+(\.|\-+)[[:alnum:]]+\-+[[:alnum:]]+\-+[[:alnum:]]+\.)(googlevideo|gvt1)\.com$ This will block most in-video ads and seems to have no side effects. (^r[[:digit:]]+(\.|\-+)[[:alnum:]]+\-+[[:alnum:]]+\.)(googlevideo|gvt1)\.com$ This will block the ads before videos start, but ...

Here’s another option. I haven’t tried it, but it’s open source. It appears that while the current version doesn’t support KitKat, and older version that’s still available does. https://blokada.org/#download

I’m not sure how well it works, but there is a version of Adblock Plus that existed for Android. It is fairly outdated, so it should run on KitKat. It works only on WiFi without root. It is no longer linked to on their website, but here it is: https://downloads.adblockplus.org/adblockplusandroid-1.3.apk http://web.archive.org/web/20170207164041/https://...

You can find some candidates in my app-list of Ad-Blockers. But without root, air is thin. My recommendation here would be Block This!. Not using it myself, but I got positive feedback from friends using it. The link just given leads to my F-Droid repository, where you can get the app (and, when using the repo with the F-Droid client, also be notified for ...

F.B. Purity seems like it will do what you are looking for. I have not used it recently as I do not use Facebook anymore but I remember it having lots of settings for removing annoying content. It also had a button on every post you could click to hide all of that specific type of content. Check out the features page to see the full list.

Note: The solution uses a browser addon (for Firefox only) to block said exit intent popup (Overlay Popup, to be precise). The addon works perfectly well on website (received from the comments). The solution uses images under instructions. Enable images in your browser if they are disabled via Preferences or an addon. There are two addons that can ...

I found a program that doesn’t mute the Ads but removes them entirely. It works by blocking the IP’s from the Ad servers and it isn’t running in the background, you start it once and it adds the IP’s to the windows firewall. Works great for me :) http://spotifyadkiller.blogspot.com

When you are using the web player of spotify (accessible via https://play.spotify.com/) with Chrome, the Plugin Adblock Plus automatically removes / skips (anyway: you won't hear them) the sound ads between songs.
