Removing ads with a third-party application on your Honor 9

Some applications such as ‘Adblock Plus’, ‘AdAway’, or ‘Adblocker’ for surfing on the internet, allow you to get rid of advertisements on your Honor 9. If you’re looking for ‘Adblock’, ‘ABP’ or ‘Ad Blocker’ in the Play Store of your Honor 9, you will usually find only web browsers that do not allow you to block ads in applications or some of the most famous browsers.

Indeed, advertising companies are pulling a great share of their profit from mobile advertising, and so they tend not to push such blockers on your Play Store.

So you have to manually install such an ad blocker on your Honor 9. Here’s how to do it below.

Prepare your Honor 9 to install an advertising blocker

By default, your Honor 9 does not allow you to install applications outside the Google Play Store.

However, you can configure it to install your ad blocker.

To do so, simply click on ‘Settings’ on the main screen of your Honor 9. Then go to the ‘Security’ submenu. Then, you will need to check ‘Unknown Sources’ to allow your Honor 9 to install an application outside your Play Store.

Once validated, you can go to the second step below.

Install the ad blocker on your Honor 9

To install the ad blocker, simply go to your favorite search engine with your web browser from your Honor 9. Once there, you will be able to type ‘smartphone ad blocker’, and you will have access to a large choice of applications and download links.

Check the notation and comments of these applications before installing them. We do not detail in this tutorial the operation of each of these applications, but you will probably be able to use your Honor 9 more freely once this cleaning done.
