Not an Android user but a brief search tells me if you have Firefox browser then you can use Adblock Plus.

Firefox 57.0.4 for Android - Download

Adblock Plus – Add-ons for Android - Firefox Add-ons - Mozilla

Just giving your topic a bump. But you did want to get rid of app ads. So, get rid of the offending app.

Ads within applications are there for a reason; so the app developer can make money. There's no way around it unless they offer a "paid version" that eliminates them, it's a cheap and sleazy way of forcing someone to pay. I typically ditch apps that incorporate inline ads, some of which smell oddly of malware/phishing.

A good ad blocker was mentioned above by Buddy215 for web browsing. In-app ads are impossible to avoid, unless they're using a separate web browsing client to display them, in which case the ad blocker for your browser may catch them. The issue is most of the in-app ads are exactly that, in-app, therefore impossible to block. The obvious solution is to avoid the app, or buy the paid "ad free" versions (if available) like I mentioned above.

 

They're mostly harmless anyways and won't pose any threat unless you follow through with them.
