AdAway is an application that provides ad-blocking services to users. So, they can easily escape from any type of annoying advertisements. Moreover, it is a free as well as an open-source application available for the Android operating system for free. This application is compatible with Android 4.1 or newer versions. It is a pretty fast and robust ad-blocker which you will ever use. This application can block any ads which are appearing in an application as well as web browsers. In this way, you won’t be prompted by any type of advertisement. Working is a bit different from other applications. It works in a way that whenever an app or browser requests an ad then it is redirected to 127.0.0.1. This redirection is done through a host file. It does nothing and just that the ad won’t be able to display on the screen. So, it prevents any ad from displaying.
Furthermore, AdAway doesn’t affect the speed of your device as well as browsing or internet speed. You won’t have to face any issues like that. There is another feature within it which enables you to customize the host files. And, you can easily add your own host files in the application. It also has whitelist and blacklist. You can even add exceptions in any of those lists as per your requirements. These features enable you to have full control and ownership over the application.
