When navigating the Internet there is a pretty good chance that we will encounter annoying advertisements that impair our user experience - and that is often the best-case scenario because we might also be talking about malware and trackers. To stop them there are ad-blocking applications, known as adblockers, and personalDNSfilter is one of them.
Advanced protection against annoying advertising
This tool is a DNS filter proxy. It works with any DNS server at a local level and allows the filter to be applied by using a list of hosts. It connects to them and then returns the loopback address of hosts that have been filtered.
It is programmed in Java and features a very simple menu that offers us functions and features such as the following:
- Manual settings for filtering hosts.
- Filters are automatically updated.
- Ability to create white lists for applications.
- Blocking can be enabled and disabled manually.
