Adhell is a tool for Samsung devices which block ads across the Android platform. It means you don’t have to setup a VPN to block ads in apps, Adhell takes care of it. This tool not only blocks ads but also block Ad-tracking and tracking of analytics. Adhell is primarily for Samsung devices running the stock TouchWiz or Samsung Experience firmware. It’s because Adhell uses Samsung’s SDK to run. However, lately, Adhell was forcibly removed from Google Play Store since it violated Samsung’s policies. After this, Adhell 2 was introduced as a replacement to the deceased Adhell. Adhell 2 has all the basic and premium features of Adhell. The best thing is that all the features are available for free and they all work perfectly on Android 7.1 Nougat and Android 8.0 Oreo.
