DNS Ad Blocking

Question

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 he[email protected] with suggestions :)

Regards

Do the Adblock DNS servers block ads for the iOS Youtube app?

Best if you try it out and report. if you get ads with adblock dns, then consider, I never get ads on youtube when using the brave browser, but I am not using iOS, brave should block all trackers and ads regardless of which dns you use.
