How to Disable Ads on Nokia Lumia 800 (White)
Nokia Lumia 800 (White) users often notice pop-up ads and banners with affiliate offers. All of this negatively affects the user experience. You can disable ads on Nokia Lumia 800 (White) both automatically and manually. Both options should be taken into account in order to reduce the amount of ad banners or get rid of them altogether.
Why Ads Appear in the First Place
Affiliate offers are one of the most important ways to make money for website and mobile app developers. However, they can show up when using a browser or a separate program, as well on the Nokia Lumia 800 (White) screen. This is a serious problem that needs a solution.
This occurs when the user has allowed the application or site to send notifications. The user might not even notice the moment when the permission was granted, as the developers try to carefully hide the fact that advertising notifications have been activated. But this does not reduce advertising. On the contrary, the more invisible the activation was, the more banners can appear on screen.
Automatically Disable Ads
If the user does not have a lot of free time to spare, they can disable ads on the Nokia Lumia 800 (White) phone using special software. There are a couple of proven options to choose from.
Antivirus programs are designed specifically to protect your smartphone from malicious activity. Usually advertising banners appear due to the fact that the device is infected with viruses. That is, there is a file in its memory that is responsible for displaying partners' ads.
The user can download any antivirus ranging from Kaspersky to Dr. Web through Google Play. After launching the application, it is recommended to immediately start the check-up, which will result in the removal of any annoyances. In some cases, full functionality is available only in the paid version of the app.
A Special Blocker
If advertisements appear due to the fact that the owner of Nokia Lumia 800 (White) gave permission to display them, then the antivirus will not help solve the problem. You need to refer to other programs (blockers). Adguard is worth recommending as one of the best apps out there. You need to do the following to disable banners:
- Download the app from Google Play.
- Launch Adguard.
- Activate protection.
- Go to Settings.
- Select "Content Blocking".
- Enable the function for all applications.
Now, regardless of how an advertisement appeared on the phone, it will no longer be shown to users. But sometimes even such a reliable app can fail, which is why the owner of Nokia Lumia 800 (White) will be forced to turn to manual methods to solve the problem.
Manually Disable Ads
When automatic tools don’t help, you can turn off ads on your Nokia Lumia 800 (White) yourself. But you need to be careful in this case, since it is not always possible to determine what exactly causes the appearance of ads.
Remove Questionable Apps
The first step is to tidy up your smartphone. Indeed, users don’t notice how their device gets filled with a huge number of apps during operation, not all of which are safe. This is especially true when the owner of Nokia Lumia 800 (White) installs applications via APK files downloaded from the Internet instead of using Google Play.
To eliminate ads, you need to:
- Open the phone settings.
- Go to the Applications section.
- Browse through the list of programs.
- Click on the name of any suspicious software.
- Press the Delete button.
Unfortunately, this method only helps if the user is 100% sure which program is damaging the device. But it can be useful to clear the phone of unnecessary applications in any case.
Disable Browser Notifications
Most often, ads on Nokia Lumia 800 (White) appear because of the user's permission to show partner notifications. This often happens after the user opens a site and then clicks the "OK" button with no understanding of what they may agree with.
To prevent pop-up ads from showing, you must:
- Launch the browser.
- Go to Settings.
- Select "Site Settings".
- Open the "Notifications" tab.
- Move the slider to the Off position.
Some menu items will have different names depending on the browser used. But you will still have no problem finding the section you need to turn off notifications.
Disable Pop-ups for Specific Programs
If the problem is not caused by the browser and you don’t want to remove suspicious applications, you can block pop-ups for certain apps. To do this, follow these steps:
- Open up “Settings”.
- Go to the "Passwords and Security" section.
- Click on the "Privacy" tab and then "Special Access".
- In the "Draw Over Other Apps" section, disable questionable applications.
- The dedicated programs will continue to work, but will no longer display intrusive banners with ads.
Blocking Ads in Some Apps
Affiliate banners in free programs are common. This is how developers make money on their product. The user can turn off ads by subscribing or using the Lucky Patcher utility. For obvious reasons, it cannot be downloaded from Google Play. But you can download the APK file from almost any site on the Internet.
After installing Lucky Patcher on Nokia Lumia 800 (White), you need to do the following:
- Open the utility.
- Grant the permissions.
- Click on the name of the app with a lot of ads.
- Go to the "Patch Menu".
- Press “Generate Modified APK”.
- Select "APK with Cut Ads".
- Click on the "Rebuild” button.
- Wait for the operation to complete.
The process will end with all banners disappearing from the program at once. Moreover, you do not have to turn off the Internet to limit advertising. Affiliate offers are not shown even when you are online.Share this page with your friends:
