Ikea tracking


I visited the IKEA web and next opened the iOS BBC app. Bang! IKEA adverising was already there. Not sure if the inapp advertisement can be stopped, but I hope the tracking can be stopped.


We can only block in-app ads if the apps use Safari inside their apps. So usually, we can’t block ads like these.

This is a situation where having VPN-level blocking would be valuable as it affects every network connection. However VPNs have access to your browser traffic, so you have to really be able to trust them (and they have to provide reliable blocking rules.)

Sorry, I can’t think of a better solution right now!


Hi Laura,
Happy New Year!

I’m aware that’s almost impossible to block the in app advertising,
but in this case I meant to block Ikea tracking.

Best regards
