First of: I’m not looking for a ‘keep my family safe’ list that blocks gambling, porn and stuff. Rather a list that accepts some ads in return for 100% functionality of all services.
I’ve been using PiHole on my own network for some time and I absolutely love it! My phone couldn’t be faster and uBlock is almost sitting idle in Chrome on my PC.
I’ve been thinking of putting an old Pi at my parents to help them out. But I’ve read topics like these: click. It seems that even the default list can break some functionality in certain services or programs. For me this isn’t a problem, I’ll whitelist any site I encounter that has need of it. But I really don’t want to have to Teamviewer into my parents’ PC because Spotify doesn’t work… Youtube has errors or Windows seems to think there is no active internet connection.
I need a ‘low-maintenance’ list for my parents that will block most ads/tracking/malware but will favor functionality over a pure ad-free experience.
What list / config would suit my needs best?
TL:DR: Need list that will absolutely not mess with any functionality of Smart TV / Sonos / Spotify / Windows / etc but still block most ads/malware/tracking.
