This allows us to block ads system-wide (for apps without built in DNS resolver) without installing additional software or plugins or anything. Getting started is really easy:


1.) Open Settings --> Connections --> More connection settings --> Private DNS

2.) Check Private DNS provider hostname

3.) depending on what you want to enter either:


dns.adguard.com

dns-family.adguard.com (To block adult sites)

dot-de.blahdns.com (small hobby project with adblock)


These are secure DNS servers that have integrated ad blocking.

4.) Press Save & enjoy ad-free browsing.

5.) An extra step for Chrome users:


Open Chrome, type in chrome://flags

search for async DNS resolver (#enable-async-dns) and choose disabled in the drop-down menu. Otherwise, chrome could use a built-in DNS resolver which does not block ads.
