Long press the network to which you are connected, and select ‘Modify network.’ Now enable ‘Show advanced options’. Change the drop-down from ‘None’ to ‘Manual’ by going to ‘Proxy settings’. Now input the settings Ad-block Plus gave you. In our case the Proxy was given as ‘localhost’ and the Port 2020’. You won’t see any ads on websites now.
