Android Library

Many ad blockers exist on Android, this is a real problem for developers that rely on ad incomes.

This project proposes an open source library that can detect most of ad blockers.

Then developers can display a dialog to inform user that an ad blocker has been detected and to propose, for example, to buy an ad-free version of the application or to quit.

Details

Currently, the following methods are used to detect ad blockers:

  • Search for known ad blockers application package names
  • Resolve known ad server domains and check if it redirects to a local address (work for both DNS & hosts file modification)
  • Check in hosts file for known patterns (work for hosts file modification)

Detection methods will not give false positive but may not detect some ad blockers.

This library will be improved regularly to ensure a maximum ad blocker detection rate.

Usage

Add dependency and plugin to project level build.gradle.

dependencies {
    compile 'com.cuneytayyildiz:adblockerdetector:1.0.0'
}

Simple example

public void checkAdBlocker()
{
    // Asynchronous detection in a background thread
    new AdBlockerDetector(this).detectAdBlockers(new Constants.AdBlockerCallback()
    {
        @Override
        public void onResult(boolean adBlockerFound, Info info)
        {
            if(adBlockerFound)
            {
              // Show your information dialog here to user
            }
        }   
    });
}

The method checkAdBlocker() should be called in an Handler, by a delayed message sent in onCreate().
