      sapientidiot This is basically the android equivalent of Adguard. It works using android's VPN API (thought its not actually a VPN) so all traffic from your device is filtered, even non-browser data.

    3. An ad blocker that uses the hosts file. The hosts file contains a list of mappings between hostnames and IP addresses. When an app requests an ad, that request is directed to 127.0.0.1 which does nothing.

      NetGuard vs AdGuard opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      Adguard and Netguard show as alternatives to each other but I don't think they can be alternatives to each other in an almost exact way. Netguard networks your traffic, it's a firewall; I use adguard as an adblocker mostly by using it from private dns. They can be quite similar in some ways but I use them both for their special roles.

      How it works When you visit a YouTube video, it will check the database to see if anyone has made any submissions for the video. If so, the segment will automatically get skipped when you reach it.

      pros, cons and recent comments
      It’s a good alongside to any adblocker, as it provides a feature of blocking sponsors that I don’t believe is available elsewhere
