How To Get Rid Of Facebook Ads On Android

Are you fed up with the endless stream of advertisements popping up on your Facebook app on Android? If your answer is yes, you’re not alone! This article will guide you through the process of eliminating these pesky interruptions and enhancing your Facebook browsing experience.

1. Adjust your ad preferences on Facebook

The easiest way to get rid of Facebook ads is by tweaking your ad preferences. These settings allow you to control the types of ads you see on Facebook.

  • Open Facebook App
  • Tap on the three lines at the bottom right corner of your screen
  • Scroll down and select ‘Settings & Privacy’
  • In the dropdown menu, click on ‘Settings’
  • Scroll down to the ‘Ads’ section and select ‘Ad Preferences’
  • Here, you can make necessary adjustments to limit the number of ads.

2. Use an Ad-blocking browser

If adjusting your ad preferences doesn’t make much of a difference, you can use an ad-blocking browser. Browsers such as Brave or Firefox Focus have in-built ad blocking features.

3. Install an Ad-blocking App

Last but not least, installing an ad-blocking app can help remove ads not only from Facebook but from all other apps on your Android device. Here are some good examples:

  • Blokada
  • AdGuard
  • AdAway (requires root)

Most of these apps do not require root access, but some advanced features might. Also, remember that using these types of apps might go against the terms of service of some apps or services.


While it’s impossible to remove every single ad from Facebook, the methods outlined above can significantly reduce their frequency. Remember that ads support free services like Facebook, so consider carefully before blocking them entirely. Happy browsing!
