Need a new ad blocker

Looks like I'm going to need a better ad blocker for my Samsung 8 because, well, you know.

Anyone have some good suggestions?

    Wait, they make ad blockers for smartphones? I've been suffering through ads on my iPhone for years...

    AdGuard highest rated ad blocker for Android. Removes ads in both browsers and apps.

    I just started to get a ridiculous video/commercial playing everytime I login on my iPad...
    Clicking just links to the commercial homepage.

    The result is that I just don't login as often.

    Starvault's reponse to criticism related to having a handful of players as the official "test" team for a supposed MMO: "We've just have another 10ish folk kind enough to voulenteer added tot the test team" (SIC) This explains much about the state of the game :-)

    How about DNS-based adblocking?

    https://www.androidsage.com/2018/12/25/how-to-block-ads-using-private-dns-dns-over-tls-feature/

    It does not block app ads, but it blocks internet ads really well, needs no extra app or browser installation and no rooting.

    Otherwise, Adguard, like Iselin suggested if you want app adblocking as well.

    If iphone supports specifying a DNS server, you can try what I suggested above for android. Google did not give me anything on iphone though so it might not allow changing the DNS server. Time to switch to android ;)

    Pretty sad as i typically turn them off on this site but soon as i do in comes tons of popups to the point of annoyance.Then if i forget to turn them back on when i leave it is like WTF is going on.

    This is the ENTIRE world of the internet now a days,everyone and their goldfish are trying to make tons of money from the internet.No longer a SHARING device,a way to game with others around the world, a way to attain some information but a complete portfolio of money making connections.
    Everywhere it is like follow me on these 6-7 different apps,like and subscribe OH and here are your cookies/trackers and beacons and thanks for watching my popup ads,oh thanks for for coming.
