Chrome for Android, like the browser version for PCs, won a native ad blocker. The tool, unlike extensions like Adblock, removes only advertisements considered invasive as advertisements that occupy the entire screen or overlap the content of the page. As such, sites that follow Google guidelines are not affected.
In the following walkthrough, see how to set up Chrome’s native ad blocker on your phone. The feature is exclusive to the Google system and is not available for iPhone (iOS) users.
