As the world becomes more dependent on technology, criminals are also evolving in the digital sphere. Online viruses have been a common problem, where every user’s security is at risk. Nothing can be trusted nowadays, even those encrypted websites we commonly visit online.
Currently, some smartphones are advanced with their built-in ad blocking systems from their manufacturers, such as Apple with their recent update on the iOS 9 that we feel relatively safe where surfing the web. Previous iPhones were still dependent on third party apps to block ads, but the new handsets are pre-built with the ad blocking filter feature. Other top of the line handsets still require additional layer of protection from online viruses, phishing, and other forms of hacking. Despite the security options of many mobile devices, it is still important to have a reliable ad blocking app to further scan, quarantine, and fix the issue before it corrupts your file, or worst, destroy your mobile device.
But, apart from protecting your device and yourself from possible data corrupting and hacking problems, ad blocking software and apps such as Adguard provide more benefit to tech users. Here’s a post to guide you of the other benefits of using Adguard:
Speeds up loading page
By avoiding ads, you are speeding up the loading page of each website you visit. Since advertisements on browsers and apps also use bandwidth to load the content and image, it can alter the speed of each web page you view on your mobile device or computer. Of course, this will also depend on whether the website is mobile responsive and have added a plugin on their CMS platform to speed up their website. But, nevertheless, a website with plenty of ads (especially those with videos and moving graphics) will certainly slow down the loading time of web pages. Thus, an ad blocking app is necessary to ensure your mobile content browsing is seamless and fast.
No need to unlock your device
Some third party apps or those APK software require the owner to root their Android devices or to jailbreak their iOS smartphones and tablets. With Adguard, it will not further jeopardize the safety of your mobile device by unlocking it just to keep it safe. Based on the Reddit thread, “Adguard is a non-root app that [promises to] block browser ads.” So, choose wisely in downloading apps. Make sure you do not risk the safety of your mobile device and mobile data.
Protect your identity online
Every website and click you make online, you are leaving footprints or data that hundreds of companies can collect afterwards. This will help them target the right market and provide you with ads that suits your web browsing style. But, leaving footprints can also be detrimental to the privacy of every individual who access even encrypted websites (https://). With Adguard, you are protected with a spyware filter that blocks data transmission from the websites you visit and retain your data’s confidentiality.
