    Can I install Adblock in my Galaxy S5 without rooting

    Hey guys, need a help from you all. I wanted to know How to add Adblock on Samsung Galaxy S5 without rooting? I want to install this app on my phone. I heard that to use the same effectively you have to root the phone and I am not willing to do the same.

    The reason i want to install this because I am quiet annoyed with lots of free ads. I am having more than 15 games in my phone and I can see this ads just eat up my internet data also. I get constant data usage messages.

    I had tried to install but it is not working fine. Hope anyone of you here can help me out of this. Many thanks.

    It is right that to use the app if you have to root the phone. But there is one more method that can help you in using the app more effective.

    All you have to is download Adblock Plus APK. Go in your settings and tap on security from where you have to enable unknown sources. Once done you install the app and then activate filtering. This will block all the ads from any app and also protect your mobile data.

    If you are going to use adblock plus on mobile data then there is few thing you have to do. You have to create a new apn settings. This is good for adblock plus to filter the adds in a better way. For that you have to go in the settings and tap on network connection. Then tap on more network and look for mobile network in that. Tap on access point you are using. Copy the default apn settings from here and then edit the original one.

    The copy will be used to restore if there is any problem. Now add proxy:localhost and then under port type 2020. Now test adblocking.
