Windows Phone app

Heads up!
Hey, this is your ad blocker talking. We very rarely do this, but this is a big deal.
Last week, Google kicked a privacy app called Disconnect Mobile out of the Play store. It even made the Wall Street Journal.
If AdBlock made a mobile app, Disconnect is the one we'd make. Which is probably why Google yanked it after just five days last time.
But guess what?
It's back! For now. But it could get pulled again at any moment.
So do what we're doing and grab your copy of Disconnect for Android or Disconnect for iPhone before it's gone.

I do not see an app for Windows Phone

    Hi Andrew,

    At this time it's not possible to build such an app on Windows Phone, because every WP app doesn't have access to the system settings and is sandboxed.

    Thanks Tomas, I will not worry about adblock for my phone as I'm not using it online as much as my home computers

    Regards with thanks
