Our own everyday used smartphones are often overwhelming with ads from banners, pop-ups, full-page ads, videos, in-app purchases, rewards, and so many others. There is even a particular type of ad in applications that would start displaying after several days of usage, thus difficult to determine its source. These ads are so frustrating to handle.
Thankfully, there are a number of ways you can do to get rid of these annoying ads completely, and a couple of them just require that you make a few setting changes in your smartphones. There is one particular video that went viral on TikTok teaching people how to make all the ads on their smartphones disappear. This is how you should do it.
