iOS advert blocking?

Post by thekungfury @ Mon Feb 13, 2017 11:16 am

Anyone know a way to block browser ads on an iPhone/iPad?

My work iPad has never been near grot* but it's recently been getting adverts for various dodgy sites which today caused embarrassment on a large screen in the office. "Lay Matures" came up as an AdChoices banner with a plump older council sort in grey leggings sliding down a banister with the end going up her bum. Thanks.

A quick google hasn't helped.


*don't ever look at browsing history my other one. Seriously, don't.

Thanks but I'd rather not change my browser if possible. Safari and keychain makes it so nice to browse across devices

Does this work for Safari? It's the best one I've used.

No, but that page recommends Purify for iOS which I've downloaded and it seems to work.
