  1. Yeah.. Shame their devices share your personal information with amazons partners. Websites you visited, isp you use all mac and IP addresses connected to the hardware. Just read their privacy policy.

  2. I block ads and some privacy stuff via Tomato router firmware. It blocks it for all network-connected devices, even on the Guest Wi-Fi.

  3. @ Max – DNS (domain name-based hosts on the internet that are ads-and-or-tracking servers) is not the only way to track you. IPs are occasionally hard-coded in, and also if I am not mistaken, Google for example, bypass DNS to use their own servers in Android. One can force all DNS through the Pi-Hole as a workaround, but I don’t think it is fool-proof or bulletproof. Is it?

  4. I have tested three major web browsers in the iOS system. Edge was successful, Brave was also successful. Safari passed the test with the AdGuard addon installed from the App Store. However Safari failed to pass with ABP ( AdBlock Plus) addon which is interesting that Edge also uses ABP but passes.

  5. Sure? Why not use them all.. it’s an install once and forget situation mostly, so.. go for it. I recommend opting for network-wide approaches first, then individual client solutions.

    My setup is MullvadVPN (WireGuard), AdGuard Home + pixelserv-tls combo. I then use client level blockers uBlock, DuckDuckGo & WebRTC leak plugin depending.

  6. Recommend you try AdGuard Home + PixelServ-TLS combo. Works even better than Pi-Hole and has more features. I’ve just converted both my primary and secondary DNS blockers on my home network and am very happy.

  7. Am using a Raspberry-Pi as “Pi-hole”. This defeats any blocker i know and it protects every / any device in your network without the need to install add-blockers on these defices (so yes, also your smartphone, tablet, smartwacht and smart-tv). Pi-Hole acts as a DNS-server in your network blocking any add from even loading. Just point your routers DNS adres to the Pi-Hole and your done. Best investment ever.

  8. What if I told you I am using 5 of them…

    My favorite is called ADGUARD, and works really well
    I am also using Sigma, AdClash, and AdBlock, I am also using Safe Search.

    Question, do I really need to use all these, I just want to be safe online and I hate getting any type of ads, and it all started when I was trying to get RID of those PESKY ANNOYING ADS on Spotify that blow out your eardrums. You know what I am talking about, just imagine this, your mowing the lawn, volume all the way up and your jamming out to whatever you want, and then BOOM, an annoyingly loud ad says “BUY OUR FRIGGIN PRODUCT BECAUSE WE LOVE TRACKING, SELLING, AND COLLECTING YOUR PERSONAL DATA SO WE KNOW YOU WOULD LOVE OUR PRODUCT” and then the 30 seconds worth of your bleeding eardrums is over.
    What I really want to know is what settings can I mess with, to just stop the pain of my ears! I am probably half deaf because of these ads, and is there a way to completely get gone of these ads?
