  • Thoughts on RethinkDNS. Firewall, Privacy, Ads, all-in-one app for privacy.
    3 projects | /r/PrivacyGuides | 17 May 2023
    sky is a stub resolver, which after stripping out all request information, forwards the dns query to both Cloudflare and Google DoH servers (code), and replies from which ever responds back the fastest. Both the client app and the resolver (server) are open source, so if you find any leaks and know what's up, we're open to changes.
  • Allow inbound LAN connections

    Could, but it'd clutter the Settings screen? Probably, Rethink could let expert users enter arbitrary IP subnets to exclude / not route? This setting will be a footgun, though! Regardless, I've noted it:
  • Using NetGuard over Blokada 5
    2 projects | /r/AndroidQuestions | 27 Apr 2023
    NetGuard can block tracker and ad (albeit very basic), so you can use it on its own without Blokada. Or you can use the AdGuard app instead which has both firewall and (complete) adblocking feature. If you prefer open source app then check Rethink
  • IMHO, Asus Calculator is the best calculator app around
    3 projects | /r/androidapps | 26 Apr 2023
    First one is Rethink DNS: to manage and block domains when apps connecting to internet (similar to Blokada, Adguard...). Here that calculator app connects to googletagmanager after installing and opening.
  • Guidance on firewalls (e.g. NetGuard, AFWall+) ?

  • Similar software for the Linux desktop?

    In fact, open snitch is mentioned in the first line of our github readme.
  • UI Suggestions for Per-App Settings
    2 projects | /r/rethinkdns | 22 Mar 2023
    Following the responses of u/celzero on my post about the icons in the “Apps” section, I noticed that he also plan to turn several universal firewall rules into app-specific rules (issue #720). That would be really great as I find it difficult to identify which apps, especially system apps, need the bypass. However, that could clutter the screen in per-app settings.

    We are due a UI rethink for per-app settings. Expect it in v056 or later. This is helpful feedback. I've noted it in our github (#720) so we don't forget.

  • How to add custom blocklist?
    3 projects | /r/rethinkdns | 8 Feb 2023
    Custom blocklists are painful to maintain and support. We do plan to add this feature, but it isn't priority:
