If you head to your menu (three lines) within your browser, there will be an add ons option. Select that and find ad blockers. These are all excellent and have worked well for me, although I currently only use a couple. You are able to adjust the settings for them after you install, and all are very safe.

My pleasure! 😃 I really like ABP and Adblock for Samsung Internet btw. If you felt like I answered your question, kindly mark this topic as solved (three dots) by my previous post regarding how to install ad blockers natively in Samsung Internet. This way, the thread will stay active in the Community and can help other Members block those annoying ads as well!

Ok no problem, but I have one more question. Is there an ad blocker for using Google's internet?

There sure is! I use Ad Block Plus and Ublock Origin. Origin is really nice because it allows you to click the top icon in the browser and then select elements it could have missed. It usually never misses any, but some sites have clever ways of disguising advertisments. This works wonders! 🙂

Oh you're still talking about for the phone browser, my mistake, I should have assumed. 😅 I don't believe Chrome for Android supports the installation of extensions. I think they have some settings internally to control some ads though.
