DNS Ad Blocking

Rate this question

Question

JonnyQ

I recently started using the ad blocking DNS servers on TG. It makes a huge difference in browser performance as the ad-blocking at the DNS level prevents a lot of the adware leeches from sucking up your memory and CPU. Even pop-ups have ads disabled in them and sites don't seem to know that their ads are being block. No "Please disable your ad-blocker" messages. The only feature request I would ask from the @Support team is the ability for users to contribute blocking lists or show the list of trackers that currently being blocked. Otherwise a great feature. 

 

For anyone who wants to try it out, here are the instructions. https://torguard.net/blog/how-to-block-ads-with-torguard-vpn/

Thanks, Johnny - we use various well-known blocklists along with our own custom blocklists, we could always take requests and review them, let me pass the idea to our staff and see what they can do, you can always email [email protected] with suggestions :)

Regards

Should I remove my AdBlock Plus chrome plugin when using this feature in my PC desktop app?

It would also be nice to be able to whitelist a site that causes a page to not display correctly when blocked.
