This is probably the only way to successfully use a host file on Android without rooting. This works all the way back to Lollipop.

Rock solid. People in low/slow data situations should install, as should anyone concerned with privacy. So almost anyone, basically.

Open source: means you're not trusting "black box" software like most ad blockers. Means that anyone can look at the software and check for bugs. Not a 100% guarantee, but much better than 100% not knowing.

For people who don't know - DNS66 can only be installed from F-Droid, an open source alternative to Google Play. F-Droid can be downloaded from Google Play. An extra step but worth it, because DNS66 uses less phone power than some popular ad blockers. Also decreases amount of data being sent from your phone, usually the slowest part of using the web. That's important all the time, not just when uploading photos. For example, to view a webpage or app on your phone, your phone first has to "upload" your details to the website, e.g. opening and logging into Facebook.

Not needing "root" means avoiding complicated procedures and software to allow installation of non Google-approved software. Tried rooting (no giggles from Kiwis please) my old LG Beat, for example, spent days, got nowhere. Some newer phones are easier to root.

But for a quick Android fix, DN66 is where people should start.
