  • hblock

    Improve your security and privacy by blocking ads, tracking and malware domains.

    Depending on what you're trying to accomplish, you can also load the blocklists directly onto your hosts. For example, hblock (https://github.com/hectorm/hblock) has a few scripts to format its blocklist for your platform. The StevenBlack list's github page has instructions for adding to a range of platforms and links to several hosts/blocklist managers (https://github.com/StevenBlack/hosts). You can also point your router at an adblocking public DNS such as https://adguard-dns.com/en/public-dns.html (free) or https://nextdns.io/ (might cost). Lastly, depending on what router you run, you could load the host lists directly onto the router.
