Asus Android smartphones user’s are either going to be happy or upset with this one. All Asus smartphones are going to have an ad-blocker pre-installed. This is not the part that users will be upset over, though. Forbes is now the latest company to prevent users from viewing their page with an ad-blocker enabled. So, if you connect the dots, Forbes will not be able to be viewed on the Asus smartphone. Depending on how much you read Forbes, will factor in if you are a little upset by this.
ASUS ANDROID SMARTPHONES WILL HAVE PRE-INSTALLED AD BLOCKER
The company Asus actually teamed up with Eyeo GMBH to be able to provide all of their phones with Adblock Plus installed. The CRO of Eyeo GMBH stated how excited the company was to join forces with Asus to do this. Adblock Plus is a very convenient extension because it prevents users from being overloaded with never ending ads. Now, it will still let legitimate advertisements through, but it stops the mind-numbing ads.
FORBES IS DISABLING ALL AD-BLOCKERS
Forbes is an online publishing company, and now they will not allow ad-blockers to be enabled. However, they do promise that there will not be an outrageous amount of ads. Forbes is not the first company to do so. Many companies in the past have decided to prevent users from using ad-blockers. Now, it is extremely easy to disable Adblock Plus on a single website. However, that is when the user installs it.
BECAUSE OF THIS, FORBES CAN NOT BE VIEWED ON THE ASUS
Once you combine these two stories together, you realize that Forbes is not going to be able to be viewed on the Asus smartphone. This is really not a big deal unless you are a frequent reader on Forbes. If this is the case, then this news might really upset you.
THIS IS STILL GOOD FOR ASUS ANDROID SMARTPHONES USER’S
Companies make a lot of their money due to advertisements. Ads are great for companies, but they are a hassle for people. So, this is a good news for all of the Asus Android smartphone users. It should also be noted that Adblock Plus is an excellent ad-blocking software. I have been using it for around one year now and it has been fantastic.
