If you’re in the market for a non-root ad-blocker, you might have a hard time finding a reliable option. I have been there too and I know how it feels. After all, it is your choice not to rot your device. Despite the offered privileges, some of you might fear of having their device turned into an expensive, unusable brick. Even more, device makers will not cover damage caused after you root the device or if you realize that the phone was bricked while it was being rooted and you cannot always unroot the handset, not to mention that automated firmware updates may not be working.
Knowing such cons of rooting Android, you should be able to make an informed decision on whether it is worth the hassle and risks or not and some of you already decided. However, you know the fact that Google doesn’t allow any of the ad blocking apps on Google Play Store, therefore users who want to block ads and also don’t to want to root their devices have to resort standalone browsers which support have ad blocking feature. Amongst all the options found out there, Bromite is the one that stand one.
Unlike its competitors, this comes as a port of NoChromo, which doesn’t require root access to get installed on your Android phone.
According to the developer, csagan5, Bromite was started as an open-source project under GPLv3. This basically means that developers from all around the world can contribute to the project to achieve optimal results. And the app can block all ads on your non-rooted device without severe battery drain and that is also a major advantage.
The developer is also clear about the fact that Bromite doesn’t leak IP addresses via WebRTC and it includes some special patches focused especially on privacy, such as the conversion of AMP search results from Google search results.
Therefore, if you want an ad-blocking Android Browser, which cares a lot about your privacy and also doesn’t require root, there is no better option than Bromite.
Feel free to download Bromite APK for Android and let me know what you think of it.
