    I don't think you can even install any add-ons for Safari on iOS 7.

    You cannot add add-ons to Safari but download an app...

    It's called - urmmmmm - AdBlocker... It's developed by Benjamin Loewe.

    Although it states it is made for iOS 6, I have been using it on iOS 7 on both my iPad 2 and iPhone 4s and it works just fine. When you load websites through AdBlocker they are just a wee bit slow to load up, as I think it is killing the ads as it s loading..

    I am happy with it and and happy to donate money to this guy....

    You can use Glimmerblocker. Though, you'll need a mac and the solution will only work on WIFI.

    I think all ad blockers work only on WiFi. If you want ad blocking on WiFi and Data the only way is a jailbroken device and change host files.

    No. And if you use ad block you are really screwing over who ever's showing the ad

    Who cares? I didn't ask for advertisements on my device. They should be happy with forcing them down my neck every few minutes on television.

    The people who own the websites need money too. Not just the tv channels.

    I don't mind non-intrusive ads, but the ones which prevent me from typing in boxes because they cover the 'send' key, or those which hijack me and send me to the App Store, or those which hijack me and send me to their website should I accidentally press on 1mm of their banner, can go do one.

    Yeah they are annoying. Yeah they piss me off when they send me to the App Store. But I deal with it becuase I know that that is keeping what I want free.

    Weblock blocks ads on Safari AND Apps! You can also block Facebook, Disquss, LinkedIn, Pinterest and many more stuff. One of the best apps out there!

    That means all your data is going through some third-party service (a proxy), right?

    This new phenomenon is complete BS. Apple really needs to do something to make this preventable.:mad:

    Is using using Weblock and sending you data through a proxy to block ads.... safe? :confused:

    Don't want a third party getting my passwords and email information. If there's no risk of that then I'd really like to use Weblock.
