Ad And Stuff Blocker (AASB) is an ad and other stuff content blocker specifically for Safari on Mac OSX and iOS. Its goal is to provide the best "out of the box" experience. There are no fancy statistics or fancy UI - just a simple UI to whitelist websites, which hopefully you won't need. AASB for Safari on iOS provides a comparable experience.
VPN Content Filter for Android uses the VPN feature to block ads in all apps, not just web browsers, using the same hosts database as AASB - think of it as a way to have your own hosts file for Android. To do this, it intercepts DNS (how names like google.com are translated to IP addresses) requests only. If the request is for a domain in the hosts database, then returns an Unknown reply to the calling app. Otherwise, it forwards the request to the DNS server, which is OpenDNS for the time being. Except for DNS calls, all of the traffic goes directly from your device outside the VPN to the destination as if the VPN was not running.
For the time being, VPN Content Filter must be downloaded from the link below because Google Play does not accept ad blockers that use this method to block ads because of course, apps like this cut into Google's business interests. The minimum version of Android it supports is Android 6.0 (Marshmellow, API level 23).
To download and install on Android, go into the device settings and search for "install unknown apps". You will either get a setting that will allow you to install unknown apps or be allowed to pick a program to allow to install unknown apps. You should allow your web browser of choice to do this, and then go to the link below for VPN Content Blocker for Android from that web browser. Once downloaded, then go to the Downloads directory using a Files or File Manager app to install it. If your device does not have a file manager app, then APK Installer looks reputable, or you can search for one yourself on Google Play.
Future releases will allow DNS customization, setting the device IP address in case the default one, 10.11.12.13, conflicts with another one on your network, and modifying the hosts database. Farther in the future, there will be a version for iOS.
Ad And Stuff Host File Manager is a Mac program that allows you to modify the host file. It comes with host files for ad and porn blocking that can be applied individually. You can also add and remove domains.
Porn And Stuff Blocker (PASB) is a porn site content blocker specifically for Safari on Mac OSX and iOS. Like AASB, its goal is to provide the best "out of the box" experience. It also has no fancy statistics or fancy UI - just a simple UI to blacklist websites, which hopefully you won't need. PASB for Safari on iOS provides a comparable experience.
Please contact us with websites where stuff isn't blocked, websites are not rendered properly, or any other feedback. AASB, PASB, and VPN Content Blocker cannot become the best blockers without a little help.
