Hello, This question is not directly related to Pihole
but, the IMDb IOS app started showing banners.
So I thougt, let's block domains untill I get the correct one.
So I blocked them all.
and the banner was still showing, no content that was gone, but the banner was theren.
So for my question. Is this "Amazon sponsor" banner embedded in the APP? or could there be some other explanation?
I doubt that, because I managed to block all the content, still the banner was there.
another theory would be that this "add" domain has a really long TTL and my iphone remembers this and therefore it doesn't show up in the pi-hole log.
not sure if on IOS, closing the app will also remove the dns cache.
IMDb shows amazon ads not only in its app but also in their web page. It is originated from m.media-amazon.com domain. You can blacklist this domain but if you are shopping from amazon, I think it is required. I have 3 regex domains whitelisted related to amazon but I don't remember exactly if needed for amazon shopping or amazon prime video or both?
