I've been getting some ad on an app on my phone that makes a high pitched beeping sound even when the phone is muted. It's gone off twice in meetings at work when I've been fidgeting with my phone. Has anyone any android adblocker recommendations?

there's serious talk in work about a corporate policy on adblocking; this is after the recent wave of coinmining malware, a lot of which is using ads to propagate. it's creating a huge noise to signal ratio for our CERT guys to trawl through.

Send them this, for Internet Explorer.

It works even when (say) a laptop is off the LAN and isn't going through a corporate proxy, where you'd normally apply your browsing policies. We used it in a former place of work and I'm not aware of any problems.
