Comments and Reviews from users:

Craig Spiderr: “Annoying adds keep appearing on the home screen. Even if you delete them they come back. I have used Opera browser since the days of the Galaxy S3 (when that was new) and for a while it was one of the best web browsers. Sadly, they have stripped most of the functionality from this browser. Syncing bookmarks does not work well anymore also. The only thing still work is the ad blocker. Might be finally time to say good bye.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Kat Cuccia: “The pervasive ads on the speed dial page (both the banner on top and random websites it ads to my speed dial) are irritating and antithetical to the point of the browser. I'm also so effing sick of AI being forced into everything, no I don't want to use your AI service, let me turn it off. Additionally, the latest update is buggy; the text size option is inconsistent and makes some text huge and other part tiny. Also trying to open the three dot menu and sometimes tab page crash the app.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Matt C: “Better than I remember it being back on old versions of Android. Blocks popups, and unlike Brave and Chrome you can install add-ons. One issue I have is that using "open image in new tab" on a picture shows a tiny image that appears to be only a few pixels in size even while zoomed in, but if I save and view the image it appears normally. Not sure of the cause of this issue.” – 3/5 in Play Store

JT PH: “Works well. This is my main browser. The only problem is some websites refuse to work in Firefox, which is obnoxious. I like the website tracker blocking features. it also allows fine tuned control over my browsing and protections from websites. There are occasional bugs but I haven't seen a browser that doesn't have them. I fix them by refreshing the page or re-opening the browser.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Anakin Skinwalker: “My opinion on the app has increased. Lots of good features, works really well(except for one big thing), and it's pretty fast. But it does get hung up. Sometimes it won't load anything and you need to delete the tab close and reopen the app to get to the website at all. Turning on/off the brave shield doesn't work. And this issue happens constantly. Other than that it's my preferred app on android, windows, and Linux.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Daniel: “It's great, I really want to love it. There's just one tiny problem. None of the options to block ads, redirects, or notifications seem to work the way they're supposed to. Ad blocker will work about 30% of the time, while redirects are hardly ever stopped. Meanwhile, I have every single notification option turned OFF, yet I'm still bombarded with notifications to translate pages, download apps, and save bookmarks to my home screen.” – 2/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “DuckDuckGo is great for the most part, I prefer it over all the other major web browsers. However, I have to on occasion, switch to Brave or Firefox when I run into annoying web page display issues on my GalaxyTab S6. Working great on my phone though, so far. (1 Year Later) This browser is getting more unreliable, often have to use Firefox because my email and other sites don't display correctly.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Christian: “I love love love all the privacy options on this browser especially the app tracking protection. However, the read aloud feature is kinda lacking. I like using this feature to have the browser read articles and stories out loud while I'm doing other things. The options to do that on this browser is pretty basic. it would be great to be able to choose more voice and cadence options, similar to Edge. Add in an Ad blocking feature and this would be the perfect browser!” – 4/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Nolan Pelletier: “I originally would give this 5/5 stars but came on here because of recent issues. I used this for quite the long time, not sure if it's been 1 or 2 years with absolutely no issues. Now every page that loads has a sponsored ad on the tip of the page that reloads every time you close it and an ad at the bottom that will stay closed once you close it. I thought it was just the website I was on because it was one that originally blocked those ads but they came up on every web page that I went to.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Alfred Pangelinan: “I haven't had any of the problems that the others are experiencing except for stray ads or two in a couple of websites. My problem is the pro medallion type thing on my screen. I usually take screenshots using this app and swipe them with my right hand, causing an ad to pop up if I press it. I would suggest moving it to one of the corners, and is there a way to remove it?” – 4/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “One of my favorite features had been the ability to turn off image downloads when not using wifi so I could save data when not home. However this latest update seems to have removed that feature, while also not incorporating the "lite" mode available in Chrome. A good browser, but without the ability to save data, I might switch back to Chrome and see how much lite mode can save me.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Brian M: “Was upset when YouTube ads suddenly began coming through and not being blocked. The developers replied and said they are working on it. I am holding out hope for a fix. I manually added an ad filter link into ABP and for now it works, but I get a black screen in place of the ad that remains there for the duration of the ad, then the video starts playing. This is definitely better than the ads but I'm hoping they can remove the ad altogether to avoid the (sometimes long) delay before the actual video plays.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “Android devices be wary! If you're not using Samsung internet it will make you choose and download a third-party browser developed in Russia or it will not work. I'm not trying to imply anything, but it will not allow you passed the second screen in the app setup if you don't select one of these two. Mozilla supports an extension of this app but the app doesn't not support that browser. I wanted to use this as a more comprehensive ad blocker as advertised. Needs to add more support.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Bryan M: “Great protection! Great value. It says and does what it needs to do to protect you and your surfing. The only issue I came up with is when you allow the VPN authentication, sometimes your WiFi experience will suffer. Instead of the 250+ down, I'd get 30 or less. I narrowed it down to that authentication. When I deleted it and restarted the phone I get normal speeds now. It occurred twice when experimenting with that particular certificate for VPN. Play with it. With or without VPN, it's an A” – 4/5 in Play Store

While transfering, my new phone kept on being disrupted by ads because I had not yet installed this app on it. While not a single ad came up on my old phone! This app works and it works very well! I would contribute if I could! 100%” – 5/5 in Play Store

Kurt B.: “Does what it's supposed to. It does a pretty good job of stalling popups and actually is a popup itself, but merely a notification that warns me about a potential popup. Kinda defeats the purpose, but at least prevents unnecessary reroutes and notification from unwarranted advertisers.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “I like this app because it is activated at all times, even upon reboot. This app would be even better if there were more features like this that makes it unbypass-able, like a feature to prevent its uninstallation so that it's permanent on the phone. As some people would still want the option of uninstallation, it should be a feature you could toggle on and off but protected via passcode once decided. I'm hoping for this addition in a future update.” – 4/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Nice that it can sync with Chrome extension, but its ability to block access on a per-app basis is broken. It just fails to detect some apps' presence, probably when tagged as system apps. E.g., many UMX phones ship with pre-installed adware (on mine, it's a bogus but non-removable app named "Main"; in other cases, it's been infested versions of legit-seeming apps like "Calendar" or "Voice Recorder"). Have to use another firewall app to deal with it. PS: sync feature seems to need app restart.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Rob N (Robehjohn): “This is definitely the best app blocker I could find. It blocks websites and apps pretty easily. The free version lets you block up to 4 apps which is enough for me. Definitely the best free edition of any app and the sales for premium are pretty good if you need more. I love strict mode on Appblock. It lets you basically make it impossible to go around it. The problem with other apps is that you can just turn it off and it doesn't matter. 10/10” – 5/5 in Play Store

Elizabeth Nixon: “2024 UPDATE: I used to love this app. Now it won't even let me just use it for the one thing I want to use it for (blocking certain sites and apps), it wants full control of everything. Just to use it, I have to turn on some accessibility feature that creates an awful GUI on my Pixel with a permanent floating logo on my screen. Had to uninstall. 2021 original review: First and only app that's been truly successful in curbing my scrolling habits. I wish I'd found this ages ago!” – 2/5 in Play Store

Artdog: “I've been very impressed by this ad blocker so far. So far it's blocked every ad I've run across on Bing and Chrome. I have not tried all of them though. All the others I've tried recently did nothing. Some even had complicated steps they asked you to do and still didn't work. The only issue I've seen is that it seems to turn off unexpectedly at times, and then you save to go turn it back on. That could be my phone force closing it though. Looks like a keeper right now.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Logan (ArkhamCookie): “I didn't think this would work. I expected it to maybe block ads on my browser but nothing more. Well, it did, but it also blocked ads in apps. It is so nice not to have to worry about ads. I mainly turn it on when browsing the web or in those apps with an ad every ten seconds. It is a nice bonus feature that I can turn on and off without even opening the app. You can add a toggle button to your pull-down menu.

Does not play well with Google and has an annoying "This browser is not the default browser, Click Here" button on its home screen. Also, does not have an option to select another home screen. I have been using it to increase my confidence level. UPDATE: Found a way to select a home page which helps (and which improves it over Firefox which requires a sign in a sync delay prior to being able to customize the home page. Found that I needed to delete all cookies, cache files, etc. a couple of days after using it to prevent slowdown. I have been wondering about add-ons and other tweaks to improve my personal experience.” – 4/5 in Play Store

John Bliss (Oluso): “I like it ok. I wish i could import settings and passwords from Google. Wish it would offer to auto translate pages like Google does. Then there is irritating issue. There are times on my LG V20 when a webpage I am viewing on the AVG browser goes blank, stays that way even after i try to refresh, then i get a crash alert and have to close it.

For a new release, I'm quite impressed, and hope that the Revoke team continue the good work.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Jacob Beck: “This app definitely works. It's nice to see a really good ad blocking app for free and without any ads of its own. Please keep it free with absolutely no subscriptions, ads of its own, or pro prices or anything like that and updated as much as possible. The one issue I have is that pop up ads still come up on occasion in certain apps. But overall an awesome app.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Alex McGowan: “Mostly works, but it has some issues with muting ads while your phone is locked. Edit: I didn't set it up correctly before and it seems to be working now. Edit 2: I don't know if this is possible, but it would be really nice if prompts to listen to an ad to get 30 minutes ad-free weren't muted, or even better if they were automatically activated.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Kal “Dayton” Johnson: “So nice. Spotify's gotten to the point where there's an ad every two songs, and I don't always have the chance to swipe the app away. This has saved me from the heart attacks of going from a calm song to a screaming ad. Doesn't block the "watch this short video" when you switch playlists but that's to be expected, considering it only wanted device broadcast status and not my password. The only issue is it doesn't work with one of my speakers, but I think that's a hardware thing, not app issue.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “Finally a mobile browser I can just flick my finger to go back or go forward on webpages. The negative is sometimes certain web pages don't load, but if i put the address into Chrome, it works, so the page was working. Also, it'll be nice to have an easier way to toggle incognito mode. (this review was edited after developer response)” – 4/5 in Play Store

Lucas: “I love the app. It is a very fast browser. However, one feature I would love to see is that on startup, my tabs won't be restored. I can do this this if I press the exit button but it would be more convenient if can just swipe the app away and not see any previous tabs when I start the app back up. Other browsers like Brave can currently do this. Other than that, stargon is an excellent browser!” – 4/5 in Play Store
