A few weeks back, Adt security launched an ad blocker called AdtSecurity, which was designed to combat malicious ads.
The company said it was an important step to curb the spread of malware, and that users could get rid from unwanted ads by blocking them.
However, as of today, Adts newest ad blocker is no longer available on its Android app.
In the meantime, the app has been removed from Google Play, and users can’t even visit the app’s page.
AdtSecurity is a free add-on to the Adt app that enables users to block unwanted ads, which can be useful for those who don’t want to spend money on advertising or who just want to reduce unwanted ad revenue.
Adt said in a statement to TechCrunch that it has removed AdtSecure from its app because of concerns over its ability to remove ads.
However the company said that it was not entirely clear why it had taken this step.
It said that Adt is working on a new ad blocking app that will offer more controls and better security features.
The company said Adt will soon release an update that will add support for AdtScopes, which it said will allow Adt users to filter ads by search term and by category.
In addition, Adtt Security will offer a new “smart filtering” feature that will let users block ads by searching for keywords, phrases or tags.
Adts new ad blocker is one of many that will make it harder for malware to gain a foothold on Android.
Google recently added the Ads filter to Chrome, which has been criticized by security researchers as not working as intended.
