[UPDATE] The best blocking lists for the Pi-Hole + DNS Ad blockers interesting combination

blacklisting

#1

We know very well that the blocking lists that are by default are good; I share my lists that I have added and block even more the internet garbage, without affecting the navigation


[UPDATE] 2018-12-10T06:00:00Z

My current configuration

I’m using Pi-hole Version v4.1 FTL Version v4.1

Block List

I focus more on Tracking and Telemetry; but it includes lists Phishing, Ransomware, Coinminer, NSA Blocking, Ads & Privacy

[UPDATE] November 13, 2018

If you have followed this post before, you have noticed that I have tried several block lists for our Pi-Hole.

And personally these are the best lists I’ve found on the web

Some time ago AdGuard DNS stopped being beta and it made me interesting to include them in the Pi-Hole configuration.

As mentioned on his website

AdGuard DNS is an alternative solution for ad blocking, privacy protection, and parental control. Easy to set up and free to use, it provides a necessary minimum of best protection against online ads, trackers, and phishing, no matter what platform and device you use

I will be using this combination, having what results are obtained. On the one hand Pi-Hole and on the other a DNS specialized in blocking Ads.

I also found these other DNS that also blocks unwanted ads

Alternate DNS offers an affordable, global Domain Name System (DNS) resolution service, that you can use to block unwanted ads.



I would like to know the comments of users that use this combination

The current default (V4) block lists include your five plus these two, for a total of about 130K domains:

many Thanks for update blocklist. i am going to try this :slight_smile:


#19

November update list blocked all my androidTV (google accounts, youtube, etc) + IPTV lists. big issues.


#20

@kobiak
If you are reading everything, after adding these lists you must use the white list of anudeppNS´s whitelist to avoid false positive blockages.
In the 100 Pi-hole that you configure you do not have problems with youtube, neither with google, nor with IPTV, re-read


#21

What made you think I did not add some hosts to whitelist? I had to search for more google/facebook hosts to make them working again. and whitelist my IPTV provider, which is completely unexpected.
