It's weird since my first note didn't have the problem of pop ups whenever I was browsing chrome but on my new Note 10.1 it happens a lot and getting a tad annoyed now, also had a xrated ad pop up luckily my nephews we're not around.

Is there a way to block ad pop ups on Chrome Android?? Via a add-on or some sort.

As I was typing this on Chrome an add on from "luvlinks" or some crap popped up

P.s. I have block add checked in the settings.

Have you tried adblock plus? It's not in the play store anymore - gotta install it from their website, but it works quite well for me on Chrome, no ads anywhere.
Also no root needed.

Does it work also with stock browser?
Are you sure root is not needed?

Not sure about stock browser, but I can tell you for sure that root isn't needed because I'm not rooted. It says so on their site too.
It has worked with some other browsers in my experience, but some of them are a hit and miss.

I had heard of it but couldn't find it on play store plus wasn't sure if it worked for chrome, I have downloaded it so I guess time will tell. Thanks.

Okay so that didn't work, I took a screen shot of one of the ones that popped up - tbh I only get pop ups on XDA website. Might have to use app but prefer using sites via chrome.

It works without root. You have to set up a proxy setting for each wireless network you connect to.

Is it possible to block a site on Chrome?? Its litterally one spam website which always pops up regardless of having adblocker installed....if theres a way to juat block that site then I can finally browse XDA in peace. I dont get why it just happens on the XDA website - think i need to stop being stubborn and just use the XDA App lol.

If you are rooted, use Adaway. I use it and don't get any pop ups or anything. Root is required, give it a try
