    You can set your own, by default it will use Cloudflare. It can only use unsecured DNS though, so it depends on whether your ISP also redirect Do53 traffic or not.

    TrackerControl, it's an amazing app developed by a research team from Oxford. It's also the app I'm using to block the internet access of GBoard.

    Antri tracker tool: TRACKER CONTROL - I used this one for my Android device. I wish they made it for iPhone too. Its better because with this app you can see what each App is doing behind the scenes, not just the system in general as Lockdown does. I found out all my Banking apps were connecting to Facebook, Amazon, Google (Wtf?!). Blocked the shit out for those domains and the Apps still worked fine! You can do the same with lockdown but it's harder to figure out which App are making the connections.

    Is this what you're looking for? It doesn't seem to work at the same time as Netguard though.

    May I ask what advantage you have using netguard over trackercontrol? I was yet not keen enough to implement either NG or TC, yet I am using blokada only for ads, and since I have to stick with MIUI ill keep tracking telemetry in cages with it.

    LineageOS is Android. The usual Google Play store is available on it (after installation of gapps). Apparently Privacy Guard is gone in the latest LineageOS. If you're on Android, give this a try:
