Cybersec NordVPN equivalent?

Recommended Posts

Hello!

 

You "can use" ad-blocking with Air, yes.

 

But if you mean Air implementing a feature like Nords, then no, because that's not Airs job to do and is more of a marketing gimmick to insinuate more features, rather than something which is actually crucial for security.

 

If you want ad-blocking, then simply add the appropriate software or hardware. Whether that's a pi-hole or a browser plugin such as uBlock Origin.


Moderators do not speak on behalf of AirVPN. Only the Official Staff account does. Please also do not run Tor Exit Servers behind AirVPN, thank you.
Did you make a guide or how-to for something? Then contact me to get it listed in my new user guide's Guides Section, so that the community can find it more easily.

im biased towards pi-hole

 

Problem with pi-hole is that it is not browser aware, and cannot adjust content based on filters unlike uBlock Origin.

As an example, take your pi-hole rules, and try to visit a heavy ad-infected site like BBC/CNN/NYT.

Do you see the issue? Pi-hole will nullroute the ads. but leave blank spaces in your browser.

The new adlocking technology is not only about sending trackers to 127.0.0.1, but also about re-drawing the origin.

Solutions like uBlock Origin are better for desktop users. Pi-Hole is better for mobile devices without native ad solutions.
