With the advancement and up-gradation of wireless technology, people worldwide are surrounded by microwaves, however, with the brighter side comes the darker side too. These microwave/electromagnetic wireless signals interfere with the environment/mankind and are referred to as electromagnetic interference (EMI)/electromagnetic or microwave pollution. Microwave/electromagnetic absorbers are used to mitigate this EMI or electromagnetic pollution. Researchers have been working on microwave absorbents of different kinds to save humans, their gadgets, electronically printed cards, etc. to create a healthy and radiation-free environment. Recently, there is an advancement in different forms of ferrite absorbers. This review presents a description of what are ferrite-based microwave absorbers, the preparation method of absorbers, the working principle, and detailed insights involving necessary models and mechanisms regarding microwave absorption. It also encapsulates the description of how the ferrite composition, morphology, doping, reflection loss peaks, and matrix account for optimizing the performance of the absorbers. The history, origin, and ancestral use of microwave absorbers are mentioned, and how technological needs lead to advancement in ferrite microwave absorbers has also been discussed. A picture is portrayed of what are microwaves, their potential hazards, and how these hazards should be taken care of with the help of ferrite microwave absorbers.
