  • How to setup Adguard Ad Blocker, Adguard DNS and Adguard VPN best to work together on Android?
    I've only added one extra blocklist into the blocker. I have added one application bypass: I've installed Samsung Internet and placed it in the app bypass list and ONLY access with it. Sharedrop is a great quick and dirty (and local network only) transfer program that doesn't work while under the blocker, so I made a desktop and bookmark link that only goes to that page.

  • KDE Connect / Air drop equivalent for Elementary OS 6.1
    I've looked... But its seems there isn't an application based solution without requiring app indicator support which is something that eOS doesn't officially have.
