After many tests on the PC I tried to configure the private DNS with ControlD:

 

https://controld.com/

DNS-over-TLS must be used:

p2.freedns.controld.com

(Block Malware + Ads)

 

on my Android smartphone

Do some tests for the ads blocker.:yes:

In my opinion it's really OK.:thumbup

I have changed controlD to AdGuard DNS which allows me with my Opera Android browser to block CNAME-cloaked trackers.

I believe that for chrome-based browsers only Brave can natively block this type of trackers.

A bit outdated but July appears to be their update schedule. Hopefully every other month, but doubt it.

BTW

Hi @Sampei.Nihira .... hope you are well. Long time no see, but I've also been away, myself. Trying to catch up.

Sorry , no trust in "brave" , like zero.

Also would never use brave because of reason(s) that are personal. Also don't trust it. DC Browser and 360 V9 and V11 also still work fine, but sometimes the latter fails when DC will render even loaded videos and my free movie sites .

BTW. Its been said not to trust Plex free movies, I still watch but NEVER EVER log it .

I stand corrected: Looks like my list is old and it updated just now from 4 hours ago. Awesome!
