HOSTS files converted or sourced from various mobile filter lists to prevent ads and tracking.
- Adguard Mobile Ads (from Adguard)
- Adguard Mobile Tracking and Spyware (from Adguard)
- Adguard Specific Apps (from Adguard)
- EasyPrivacy 3rd-Party (from EasyList)
- EasyPrivacy Specific (from EasyList)
- Adguard DNS (from Adguard) (Includes simplified version of Adguard English filter, Social media filter, Spyware filter, Mobile ads filter, plus EasyList and EasyPrivacy) (Recommended for desktops only)
These lists will be updated from time-to-time. To update them yourself, the repo includes a PHP-CLI script (
converter.php) that converts ad filter lists into HOSTS files. View the source for more details. Send a pull request if you want me to add a specific filter list.
FWIW, I personally just use Adguard Mobile Ads and Adguard Mobile Tracking and Spyware on my mobile devices.
