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.


PS

Last time, at least in my experience adguard DNS has a lot of slowdowns. If you experience a slow internet connection, maybe that's the problem. Also, it's working for Android 10 too.

I don't have private DNS settings.


Edit...
Never mind. I'm not on Pie.

Get the ip address of dns.adguard.com and add it as a dns entry on your advanced setting for wifi connection.

Your better off with a vpn with blocking capabilities then running adguard as a dns.

Oh shoot, the only problem is that it breaks MMS/picture messaging. I reverted the mod and picture messaging works again. Any workaround or does that just go with the territory?

It seems using "dns-family.adguard.com (To block adult sites)" will also block some regular YouTube vids. Changed to "dns.adguard.com", fixed it.
