An efficient adblocker
Some time ago mobile adblockers became quite popular. Probably at the same time that most of the web adverts became more and more invasive, hindering our browsing experience and making us consume more connection and data resources. That's why these apps started to pop up, capable of establishing advertiser blacklists, preventing them from loading and helping us to gain in speed and data saving.
The most efficient adblocker for Android
But not all adblockers are equally efficient and that's why someone came up with DNS66, an advert blocker capable of blocking advertisers and hosts via DNS. Unlike other similar apps such as AdBlock Plus, one of the most downloaded options, it doesn't work through a proxy. Neither do we have to root our device as in the case of AdAway.
This app sets up a VPN and redirects the traffic from the DNS server through this network to filter it, only allowing petitions from the hosts that aren't on the blacklist. The latter can be configured as allow, ignore or deny.
Greater control over advert blocking.
When you download this APK to block adverts, remember that many webs do meet all the good practices when it comes to advertising and that the majority of them are financed thanks to publicity, so you should apply common sense when it comes to blocking.
Requirements and additional information:
- Minimum operating system requirements: Android 5.0.
- The installation of the app by means of the APK file requires the activation of the "Unknown sources" option within Settings>Applications.
