    How do the iOS ad blockers work

    • +1 vote

      Settings, safari, content blockers, turn on whichever app you have for blocking

    • +1 vote

      The iOS blocker app downloads filter list and submits it to Safari. Then you in Safari settings see it in Content Blockers and can enable/disable. App is not seeing page contents, but its still an app, so due diligence is required.

    No Privacy Details provided by developer


      They haven't provided their privacy details directly to Apple/the app store, but they do link to their privacy policy in the same section albeit to a google doc.


      First thing I check on any free app.


      If your not paying, you are the product.


    So this only blocks adds for safari?

      Looks that way. To do device based filtering the two options that for me have seemed to work well are Adguard Pro and NextDNS.io. Both of those options will filter content across the entire device.

      Currently I use NextDNS.io when I’m out and about, and have it automatically disable when I’m at home as my home network has Adguard Home as a network wide content filter.

      I still run browser extensions even though I run those alternative solutions. The two options I listed block content at a whole domain level and thus aren’t as effective in some scenarios where content is hosted at the same address as ads. A mix of browser extensions and DNS level stuff gives better coverage, although when a webpage doesn’t work there’s more things to look into when trying to work out why a page isn’t loading should you want to whitelist an address.


        Thank you for the detailed reply


          No worries. NextDNS is a pretty neat tool and worth a go for anyone interested. I’ve found their free tier more than enough for my one mobile device.


        Use Weblock for iPad & iPhone and thank me later. It blocks ads from all apps, even on ozbargain if you are on chrome (iPad/iPhone).


    How does this stack up against AdGuard Free DNS?

    Comes up as $1.49 for me.
