Hi buddy jimbo,

Well, if you rooted your device and installed stuff like Permission Manager, SuperUser/SuperSU, it is normal that your device asks which permissions you want, or don't want, to allow when installing a program.

However, when running an application, it shouldn't ask for permissions anymore. If it still does, then you must have installed a program which acts so, or ... there's something wrong in your settings.

hi BamSec1. i trust things are good with you. tnx for the reply, buddy.


 


i may have not explained myself correctly (makes a change, eh?). wh at i meant was that when i use the phoneon the internet to try to get to websites i want so i can download something, i am plagued with pop-ups and redirects. i wondered what app would be best to install so that i can stop all the crap from happening and aloow me to get to where i want to be. atm, i find it much quicker and easier to go to the sites on the puter, dowload what i want and then put it across to the phone via usb. sometimes i am not able to do so because of where i actually am and waiting til i get home is a pain. so, i am looking for an app that will stop as much of the crud as possible, without stopping me from getting to the sites and doing what i want.


 


hope this is a better explanation :-)

In your android Chrome browser, go to Settings > Content Settings. Enable "Block Pop-ups".


 


Been using Adblock Plus for Firefox (Windows) and it's database is pretty good.

Above solution is a browser based ad blocker.


For system wide blocking, use Adaway on rooted phones -

A downloading alternative is BlackMart Alpha - http://forum-andr.net/topic/32906-blackmarket-alpha-099xx/
