  • Apple's iCloud+ “VPN” | 2021-06-16
    Does this compare to NextDNS[1]. I moved from Pi Hole[2] to NextDNS and I'm happy with it.



  • And that’s a fact
    And FFS start adblocking and dns filtering
  • Everyone on this sub needs one | 2021-06-15
    Bruh, why aren't you adblocking? Now Google analytics has your porn preferences forever.
  • Will there be anymore DNS servers with DNS-over-TLS(DoT) feature other than cloudflare, google and quad9?
    NextDNS ( supports DoT/DoQ/DoH… let you setup custom protections, block ads etc.
  • DNS with NextDNS... I confused myself. | 2021-06-13
  • ON/OFF switch | 2021-06-09
    If you want it on config page, how would that be implemented? The UDM still goes to NextDNS for every DNS request... (best you can do from the config page a rewrite but not sure if it works for a global '*' wildcard).
  • Network/Router level ad blocking?
    I'm kind of surprised that nobody has mentioned this, but NextDNS is a great solution with super-easy setup and a very generous free tier. It even has its own subreddit; r/nextdns
  • Forward certain domains to a different DNS provider | 2021-06-07
    With the NextDNS Command-Line Client you can setup what is known as a Split Horizon which does what you are asking.
  • Kakao Talk PC and blocking desktop ads | 2021-06-06
  • Can you set up NextDNS on a Roku TV? | 2021-06-06
    yes, but how would depend on the router, how VPN is setup, etc... check if the nextdns CLI client supports your model and try that first
  • Anyone else find the Apple News app to be incredibly useless these days? | 2021-06-05
    Use nextdns ( or something similar like pi-hole and you won’t see any. It basically blocks ads at a domain level, so it works where Safari content blockers cannot (including the Apple News app).
  • Has anyone rooted their phone? | 2021-06-04
    You can customise filters & level of blocking by going to, and creating account. It'll give you an ID and you put that at the start like
  • Is solid explorer safe to use? | 2021-06-03
    I haven't checked - I wouldn't know what app to use! NetGuard can log connections but it's a paid addon I don't have. I do know Solid has Google / Firebase analytics built in however, so you will need to block them elsewhere if you aren't already, perhaps with NextDNS.
  • Does nextdns have a status page for updates/outages? | 2021-06-02
    Turns out it may be EdgsOS not having right certs for letsencrypt. A new version of the cli has been releases:
  • AdGuard does it work and is their a AdGuard home for dummies? | 2021-06-01
    If you just want to block ads, it's very likely just setting up your devices to use AdGuard DNS or other adblocking DNS is enough. If you need logging or customizable filter, NextDNS is much easier to use than hosting your own DNS resolver.
