How to get rid of Netflix-like ads in Netflix-compatible apps
Posted On July 14, 2021
Updated July 26, 2018 11:19:13When you’re browsing Netflix, you’ll often see ads pop up in your browser, like this one:It’s not uncommon for Netflix to ask you to pay for a movie or TV show, but sometimes these ads are just a nuisance, especially if you’re using an Android phone.
If you’re one of the millions of people who use the Android Netflix app, you might be able to remove these annoying ads from your Android device.
But if you aren’t, you’re missing out.
Netflix and Google have long been working on ways to make it easier to get the ads out of Netflix’s app, and this year the company added an option to turn off these ads for Netflix-based apps.
Netflix’s official blog post explains that you can do this by visiting the settings menu in your Netflix app and tapping “manage ads” or “uninstall ads” in the top right corner.
While the app still asks for permission to install the ads, it now gives you the option to “unblock them.”
Here’s how to do that:If you have an Android TV device, just tap the “Apps” menu at the bottom of the app and select “My TV.”
On that page, you can tap on “Unblock Netflix ads.”
You can then turn off the ads for the apps you don’t use.
You’ll need to do this every time you visit Netflix, or if you use a Samsung or Apple TV device.
Here’s how you can also get rid, or at least temporarily block, these ads from appearing on your device.
If Netflix asks you to add the ads manually, tap “add new ad.”
This will open up a new tab in your Android app.
Tap on “Settings” and then tap “Apps & Services.”
Tap “Ads” and select the “Remove ads” option.
If it asks you for permission, tap the check mark next to the “remove” button.
You should see this box appear.
You can now uninstall the ads.
If, like me, you don�t use the Netflix app or are simply not a Netflix user, you may not be aware of how these ads work.
This is because they are part of the Netflix App, which is installed on many Android devices.
If the app is installed, then Netflix ads are usually hidden and unobtrusive, but if you are using an iOS or Android device, the ads are present and can be easily spotted.
If they appear on a device that isn’t compatible with Netflix, the Netflix ads can appear as an “invisible icon” next to some of the ads on the TV screen.
You might notice a green bar at the top of the screen when watching Netflix videos.
This bar is typically hidden by default.
If an app is disabled or blocked, the TV ads will also not appear on the screen.
It might also appear on your home screen, or when you use the camera to take photos.
If these ads appear on Netflix apps that you have installed on your phone, you probably won’t notice them.
But some apps are installed in the background, so you might notice an annoying green bar when using the app.
Netflix also blocks these ads in some Android apps, but these ads don’t appear when you install apps from Google Play.
If any of these ads do appear on any Android device that doesn’t support Netflix, Google is likely to take action.
But it may take a little time for Google to update these ads to the app you have on your Android phone or tablet, so it is best to remove them when you can.
If Google is doing something, you should also disable the apps that are in the middle of your screen.
If you disable a Netflix-enabled app and turn it off, it will disappear from your device, and the ads will not appear.
