How To Block Pop-Up Ads In Google Chrome (Android 10)

Although Google’s lifeblood is ads, it actually does a pretty good job of restricting ads, especially those annoying pop-up ads, in its Google Chrome browser. If you’re getting a lot of pop-up ads whenever you browse the web using your Google Chrome browser, there are a couple of settings that you can tweak to block them.

There’s no need to install any third party app in order to achieve what you want. We also want to remind you that you want to be wary of any third party app that may offer to provide the capability to block apps. Often times, these apps are themselves loaded with viruses or malware that can allow downloads and installations of malicious apps without your knowledge.

Enabling Google Chrome’s Pop-Up Ads Blocking feature

Time needed: 1 minute.

If you don’t want to see the ads and pop-ups that came with them on your Google Chrome browser, you’ll have to turn off Ads and Pop-ups under the settings menu of the app. So far, these two options are the best ways to effectively put pop-ups under control in Chrome. Learn what to do by following the steps below.

  1. Open Google Chrome.
