AdAway – Block advertisements

AdAway – Block advertisements. This ad blocker uses the hosts file to allow it to block the incoming ads. The hosts file contains a list of mappings between host names and IP addresses. When an app requests an ad, that request is directed to 127.0.0.1 which does nothing. There are options to run a web server to respond to blocked host names and to direct requests to the IP address of your choosing. You can download hosts files from the app but it is possible to use your own and to add certain sites to the white- and black-lists.

Will need to have root access for this app to work as its host files is located in /system which is normally read-only.

The app was created in 2011 and the last update was in Nov 2016. It main purpose is to Block advertisements.
