Many internet users, tired of endless ads and annoying popups in their browsers, have already solved this problem with the help of ad blockers
. However, a lot of people are not even aware that annoying banner ads are also easy to remove from different programs.
Let's see how you can get rid of banners and pop-ups in programs. Not all ad blockers can help you. For example, well-known extensions such as AdBlock and Adblock Plus are unable to remove ads from programs because they only work at the browser level and are powerless when it comes to filtering annoying ads in apps.
