Adblock Plus and (a little) more

Adblock Plus 1.2.1 for Android released · 2014-04-03 11:22 by Wladimir Palant

Install Adblock Plus for Android

If you already have Adblock Plus for Android, it should notify you about the update shortly and download it automatically.

Important note: We strongly encourage you to install this release as soon as possible, it fixes a security issue present in all previous Adblock Plus for Android versions.

In addition to that, this fixes a bug in the previous version that caused development builds to be offered as updates for the release version. Because of that issue most Adblock Plus for Android users are using development builds now so this release will be offered as an update for development builds as well. This unfortunately also includes users who explicitly chose to install development builds — if that’s true for you please install Adblock Plus for Android manually to get back to the development build channel.

    Hi there, when will Adblock Plus for Android support blocking ads through mobile UMTS connections? At this point, it supports only blocking through Wi-Fi connections. That’s annoying. Thank you for any reply.

    That’s listed under known limitations and is actually a limitation of the Android platform. So far we can only support UMTS connections on routed phones.

    I hope this works.

    I’m having issues with 1.2, it’s blocking the 4G LTE connection completely, won’t download pages in Chrome unless I disable it.

    Feel free to ask in our forum, it’s impossible to say anything without more information. In particular, is that a rooted phone? Adblock Plus cannot affect LTE connections on non-rooted devices.
