    • I works like Pi-hole, as it filters DNS requests. It cannot remove ads embedded in HTTPS connections. Therefore you will still need Adblock etc. Guest • Apr 2019 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It works exactly like Pi-Hole and is a full fledged DNS Server and not just a DNS proxy. Works on Windows, macOS, Linux and Raspberry Pi. Plus it gives much more features like DNS-over-HTTPS and DNS-over-TLS for using public DNS resolvers and also allows you to host your own service using these protocols.

    • It can replace Pi-Hole by installing it on Raspberry Pi for blocking Ads network wide. shreyasonlineJan 2019 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree

It's freakin amazing, helps you block shitty ads before it comes to your computer, and AdBlock doesnt need to do anything. Some specially designed Ads from some news websites is not blocked by PiHole, so by keeping AdBlock (or installing it as well) will give you 2 layers of security. My PiHole-installation blocks about 600-1000 ads a day, on a small network.
