so recently i have been investigating and testing ways to block ads on the go as well as protection against malware : phishing etc.

one of the key ways i wanted to do it was by DNS - so no apps or plugins needed..
when i am at home i have a firewall to protect my devices.. but on the road i use ad guard plug in, but it does occasionally block pages from working..

So I looked up DNS methods - so basically you add a custom DNS to your network setting on your computer or iOS device and boom you are done and protected..

here are a few DNS options - best of all - free!

https://adguard.com/en/adguard-dns/overview.html
as well as
https://www.security.neustar/digital-performance/dns-services/recursive-dns#free
which offers a lot more options, which you decide how much protection you want.

you're welcome - the internet is no longer a safe place..
not to mention the amount of ads out there, just kills your experience and bandwidth.

i have personally tested all of the ones i mentioned.
