Question about the Block This! App and DNS blocking.



  • The DNS Blocking method is working very well. I looked at this post

    https://forum.block-this.com/topic/10/using-app-servers-for-windows-connection

    and I tested with OpenDNS before this which did not successfully block all ads.

    However the DNS Server above manages to stop Ads before they even get into the computer.

    I have 2 questions,

    1. Is there a need to have a hosts file at all if Ads are blocked so well on DNS side?

    a) What is the guarantee that our Privacy is not being sold or our data is not being taken?
    b) How much can we trust the DNS system?
    c) Is it safe for us to use this in Windows?

    If someone can please answer this. What the author is doing is a great thing for the people but maybe a bit of reassurance that the App and DNS server are Safe for us would be nice.
