PI-HOLE: A Black Hole For Internet Advertisements

 

Ubuntu AdBlocker

This script says it’s for the Raspberry Pi but you can also put it on other OS’s like Ubuntu, Debian…etc I actually have it set up on an Ubuntu 16.04 VM and it works perfectly. It’s great for blocking those annoying ads on your smart TV when you first load up a Youtube video.

I wouldn’t say it’s better than Chrome and Firefox’s Ublock Origin Extension but it has its uses like blocking ads on your phone’s browser as well as Tablets and TV’s which are hard to find a good adblocker. Give it a spin and leave a comment below to let me know if it worked for you.

 

 

 

Block Over 100,000 Ad-serving Domains

Known ad-serving domains are pulled from third party sources and compiled into one list.

 

 

Block Advertisements On Any Device

Network-level blocking allows any device to block ads, regardless of hardware or OS.

 

 

Improve Overall Network Performance

Since ads are blocked before they are downloaded, your network will perform better.

 

 

Reduce Cellular Data Usage

Pair your Pi-hole with a VPN for on-the-go ad-blocking and save on data costs.

 

 

Monitor Performance And Statistics

The Web interface shows how many ads were blocked, a query log, and more.
