    If you don't want to root your phone, there are a couple of option including, but not limited to: GreyShirt's NoRoot Firewall, LostNet NoRoot Firewall, Mobiwol, and FilterProxy. For discussion on other android solutions, besides FilterProxy, please see the resource links provided below or use the search function.

    Options for non-root adblocking? Other's include FoolDNS, specialized browser apps, Firefox Adblock Plus extension, etc.

    Oh, don't forget Dr.Web though FW is paid feature.
    BTW maybe you know, there was adblock in Playstore, but Google removed it.
    But you can download them from...ah, sorry I forget the place where we can download non-store apps relatively safely, but some of you know?
    I just have been forgotten them but remembered just now.

    Also maybe we shouldn't use word 'ad block' too much?
    Because maybe google find these word and consider, say, FilterProxy should be banned.:mad: lol

    well, then configuring router firewall is also an option, though not flexible at all.
