    can you help me out .... ???



  • @cavaco Both Chrome and Android app have the ads server connection built into the software to pipe the ads through the device current IP address instead of selecting the ad server IP separately.



  • @NollipfSense thank you for your answer , is there a way to block this built in connection or redirect it to the dns resolver , i had no ads in google when i had pihole .....



  • @cavaco No, not completely, you will get a few! Remember, that's how Google earns its moola; so, either put up with the few or don't use.



  • @cavaco Yes, same like me. Chrome doesn't block adds from pfBlockerNG, but mozilla is block adds. Anyone can help?



  • Install Privacy Badger and uBlock Origin on your Chrome browsers. Should help.
