Use Adaway as an Android IP Filter / Blocklist

AdAway

AdAway Blocklists

I spent some time trying to find an acceptable ipfilter for Android and had almost hit a wall. Repeated suggestions of Peerblock were unacceptable as the application is buggy and has not seen development in some months.

It is then, by coincidence, that I recognized Adaway as a perfect ipfilter app.

Why is it so perfect? Let’s do a breakdown:

  • Automatically updates blocklists
  • Accepts third party blocklists
  • Does not require xposed framework, only root
  • Stable and actively developed

You can grab adaway here. And find some blocklists at BlockList Pro.
