    I think there are free adblocks for cell phones. Something with a 'T' and a green shield. Maybe you can use a proxy website that disables ads or an alternative browser?

    I think Quantumcat wae able to install adblock, the app.

    .......so, you're on Victoria Hearts....don't end up pregnant.

    Have you tried anonpass? It's a decent proxy for sites.

    As for apps, I can't recommend any--the phone that has all my 'optimization apps' hasn't been turned on in months. It's also linked to my okcupid, so....no, not going to turn it on.

    I got the app adaway, it's root only, but it bans ads effectively using the hosts file

    We use google ad sense, so any ads you are seeing are proc'd from your browser history...

    Ok well

    I know there was a member that was bugging me about getting NSFW ads on GBAtemp and I told him how we handle ads. He later told me he "knew what was going on and wouldnt contact me again"

    What? It is adsense, but adsense is crappy at times, still it is one of the greater adservices.

    Lmao

    Personally though I think it's related to your history but with a slice of random if it's showing the same ones too much
    I'm now getting ads about business data management

    LOL, I got no ads on my laptop & I disabled adblock... Also it grabs it from history including those pesky pop ups.

    I searched for a few resistors on my work computer and later I was getting ads from Tektronics for (no joke) $200K oscilloscopes.

  20. If you have ad tracking disabled on google settings you will get random adverts that don't have anything to do with you your search history.
