This repo was moved

This repo was moved to spootle/blocklist. If you intend to use the blocklist or any other files from this project, please move on to the new repo, or if you already use this project, please switch to the new repo. Nevertheless, don’t panic. This repo will still get updated for some while, alongside with the new repo. So take your time, switch if you can and everything will be fine. I hope you enjoy using this blocklist.

Pi-Hole blocklist

This blocklist was created by merging several existing blocklists into one. All files used are listed in blocklist-files-urls.txt. The final blocklist file is blocklist.txt.

Add the list to your Pi-Hole

Update interval: daily

What’s on the list?

In short: Domains that deliver tracker, ads and malware. The domains are collected and merged into one file by my Pi-Hole merger script.

The goal of this list is to make it possible to identify and block unwanted and harmful items in the internet. Effectively the domains on this list are known to deliver exactly these unwanted and harmful items, such as tracking and analytic scripts. As ads are often loaded from third party providers which are spying on users too, the domains from such providers are also included in this list. Obviously, malware also counts directly as harmful and unwanted, which is why such domains are also blocked.

New blocklists will be added if I stumble across and consider them as useful to the goal of this list.

Overblocking

  • As less as possible

This Blocklist is intended to be a easy to use blocklist. This means to block as many as possible unwanted domains while reduce overblocking to a minimum level. In the end you should get a solid blocklist, that doesn’t bother you with making half of the internet unavailable. For some of you this might be to less, what means, that you have to take extra steps to ensure that everything that should be blocked is blocked. Nevertheless this blocklist is a good starting point.

Whoops - overblocking is happening anyway

For those of you who have issues with overblocking there is a whitelist with domains that get blocked with this blocklist for good reasons, but may break services you use. Just pick out the ones you need and add exeptions for them in your Pi-Hole. Also, you might consider why you are dependent from services that possibly track you, or serve other unwanted things.

Which blocklists were unified - Whom to thank?

Following is a table with all blocklist files that were used. A huge thanks to everyone who contributes to and maintains these blocklists. Thanks to them and their great work there is an easy way to avoid unwanted things on the internet!

Thank you!
