Introducing 1Hosts blocklist

Starting with Blokada 5 v5.13, and Blokada 4 v4.13, a new blocklist is available in Blokada: 1Hosts.

What is it?

This is a general purpose blocklist with various configurations providing various levels of blocking. We introduce two configurations to our app: Light and Pro. We recommend you try Light first, and if it’s not blocking enough, then switch to Pro, which is more restrictive.

I still don’t understand its functionality. I just know it’s by the host. What exactly does it do?

I am also wondering why the Team never opted for the wildcards variants.
They are small but have the same/more blocking power as/than their counterparts.

Like every blocklist, it’s useful for configuring your adblocking on your device. It compiles several different sources to provide you with a mix of good adblocking, but not too restrictive one. The best is to try out various blocklists in the app and see which one works the best for you.
