Over the years I've made the point on how important DNS is and that you can block, with a setup like AdGuardHome or Pi-hole via DNS, ads and domains that are spying on or monitoring you. I believe we created a great linked list previously but I'm feeling the need to renew the list of good ad blockers.
So here goes:
Adaway (focused on mobile ads)
Android tracking (its in the name)
energiser blugo (compilation)
energized blu (compilation)
energized porn (compilation + porn)
energized ultimate (compilation)
energized unified (compilation)
firetv tracking (tracking)
Games tracking (tracking)
oisd nl (general)
phishing army (phishing)
Easylist China (Chinese domains)
shallalist porn (general +porn)
Smart tv tracking (in the name)
stevenblack porn (compilation + porn)
winspy (windows telemetry)
This is a list that refers to the original article and was updated last on the 31st July 2020.
I believe it's more important than ever to update your block lists and to keep them updated, thus this revised entry to the Cookbook.
And if you're looking for the easy road when it comes to DNS consider NextDNS
