Currently, to be able to block video ads on YouTube on an Android 7 and above device, you need to install Parallel Space.
Parallel Space is a free app that allows other apps to run in their own virtual environment. This allows AdClear to more effectively block ads on devices running Android 7 and above:
- Install Parallel Space from the Play Store. If you have a 64-bit Android Phone, Parallel Space will notify you that you need the 64-bit version of the app, and provide a link to download it from the Play Store.
- Install the latest version of AdClear from seven.com, or if AdClear is already installed on your phone, check for available upgrades and install the new version if available.
- In AdClear, go to Settings>Ad Blocking>HTTPS filtering and make sure that HTTPS filtering is enabled.
- In AdClear, go to Settings>Manage apps and make sure that both Parallel Space and 64-bit Parallel Space (if installed) are enabled for ad blocking.
- Run Parallel Space and add the YouTube app to the list of apps which will run through Parallel Space.
- While in the Parallel Space app, launch the YouTube app
AdClear should block most ads on YouTube and other apps
Remember to always run your apps from within Parallel Space, rather than directly from the app tray.
Note: 64-bit app is a utility app to improve compatibility between Parallel space and 64-bit devices.
