Introducing Combined Privacy Block Lists

Starting with Blokada v5.11, and v4.12, a new blocklist is available in Blokada: Combined Privacy Block Lists.

What is it?

Ad & malware-blocking hosts files, IP block lists, PAC filters, and ABP / uBO subscriptions, all merged, sorted and de-duped from multiple reputable sources, along with own research. These lists block malicious and harmfully deceptive content, like advertising, tracking, telemetry, scam, and malware servers. These lists do not block porn, social media, or so-called “fake news” domains, except for the advertising, tracking, telemetry, scam, and malware servers associated with such sites. False positives are rigorously removed from all lists upon discovery, and the hosts files are processed by an IDN-to-Punycode conversion routine (meaning that they can be utilized on all operating systems).

Not a big forum user in general, but just wanted to say many thanks for including my list, and of course for all the work on Blokada over the years. If anyone ever encounters an issue, please head on over to my Github. I make an effort to respond to issues very quickly.
