How To Stop Facebook Ads On Android

Are you tired of being bombarded by Facebook ads? Do you wish to have a seamless and uninterrupted Facebook experience on your Android device? You’re in the right place. In this blog post, we will guide you through a simple, step-by-step process to stop Facebook ads on Android.

Why am I seeing Ads on Facebook?

Before we delve into the steps to stop Facebook ads, it’s crucial to understand why you’re seeing them. Facebook’s primary revenue source is advertising. They gather data about your interests, activities, and engagements, and use it to show tailored ads.

How to Stop Facebook Ads on Android

Unfortunately, completely stopping all Facebook ads is impossible because, as previously mentioned, ads are Facebook’s primary revenue source. However, you can limit the number of ads you see and control the kind of ads that are shown by changing your ad preferences.

Step 1: Open Facebook App

The first thing you need to do is open the Facebook app on your Android device. Make sure you’re running the latest version of the app.

Step 2: Access Facebook Settings

Tap on the menu icon (three horizontal lines) present at the top-right corner of your screen. Scroll down and tap on ‘Settings & Privacy’ then select ‘Settings.’

Step 3: Find Ad Preferences

Scroll down until you find the Ads section. Tap on it, then tap on Ad Preferences. You will find different options that will allow you to adjust the ad settings.

Step 4: Adjust your ad preferences

In this section, you can make several changes:

  • Ad settings: Here, you can disable ads based on data from partners and ads based on your activity on Facebook Company Products that you see elsewhere.
  • Hide ad topics: This allows you to hide certain types of ads for a period of time or permanently. For example, alcohol-related ads.
  • Advertisers you’ve interacted with: Here, you can see a list of advertisers whose ads you might be seeing due to your interactions.

Remember, Facebook uses your activities and preferences to serve you targeted ads. The less information Facebook has about you, the less targeted (and possibly fewer) ads you will receive.


While it is not possible to completely remove ads from Facebook, by following these steps you can certainly make your Facebook experience more pleasant by limiting and controlling the types of ads you see. Happy browsing!
