Hi there

I am trying to access the Android Police Web site on my new mobile using the Chrome Browser.

However, it says I'm running an ad blocker. I can't even access their web page on how block unwanted ads as I'm running an ad blocker!

I tried both the Kiwi browser and Samsung Internet browser and I'm having the same issue.

Does anyone know where I find out where an Ad blocker might be running as I don't remember installing anything myself.

It's possible I enabled something on my phone when setting it up but I did a search online and I can't find anything.

Settings, connections, more connection settings. Check there and make sure that private dns is on automatic. A friend of mine bought a used phone and it did the same thing. Turned out that the previous owner was using adguard.

Thanks for the replies.

I went to Samsung Interner -> Settings -> Privacy Dashboard -> Smart-anti tracking and set it to never.

That worked.

I then set it to always and the Android Police Web site still worked.

If only their Web site was as helpful in explaining what to do but perhaps my issue was obscure.
