  • I would love to see this happen in Ireland : Belgium bans gambling advertising from July 1
    For everybody else, install an ad blocker. I use the free ublock origin on chrome, and for all my iOS needs I use 1Blocker. 1Blocker Pro also sets up a local-only VPN config which allows it to block ads in all apps across the entire iOS, even non-browser apps. - Source: Reddit / 13 days ago

    Https:// Is a system wide ad blocker. It’s not uBlock Origin in terms of coverage, but extremely close and it work on all apps. - Source: Hacker News / 27 days ago
  • Suspended PC Optimum account after regular use
    The only thing I can think of is that I use 1Blocker in Safari and on my phone. It uses a VPN-based firewall on iOS app tracking. I don't like when apps fingerprint me or try to log my location or how often I open their apps. Maybe the way the app does this is tripping some security check, or maybe the data collecting itself is the price of admission and that's why they say I'm breaking terms. - Source: Reddit / about 1 month ago

  • Just spotted this ad on Reddit, guess it's not a Dell

  • Question on pricing differences between iOS / web / StackSocial
    I've been looking at VPN offers, mainly for privacy concerns, but non of them seem to completely block ads, which means I would still need a system-wide ad blocker (I'm currently using 1Blocker on iOS and macOS). - Source: Reddit / 4 months ago

  • Dear Apple, I want to use Safari, but you don't make it easy.
    Firefox is my main browser as well (I try to use Safari on and off but have to jump out from time to time because something is broken -- this time it's Bitwarden's keyboard shortcut), however speaking of uBlock Origin, there's a viable Safari alternative (of course not free, because it's the Apple world ;) ), namely 1Blocker. It works on both macOS and iOS and is pretty neat. It works differently than uBlock... - Source: Reddit / 10 months ago

  • What's an app that you use regularly but it feels like you're the only person who knows about it?
    1Blocker - on Mac and iOS. It’s involved in every web page that I visit (Safari). But technically it only runs when updating the content filtering rules, because Safari actually does the content filtering. No need for an extension. - Source: Reddit / 10 months ago
  • [iOS/Mac] [Quiet] [$9.99–> Free] [Customizable Safari extension for blocking out unwanted distractions and cleaning search results]

These ones also provides ad blocking and more as well. So, it's hard to understand why this Quiet app has $9.99 price tag. - Source: Reddit / 11 months ago
