    Very interesting performance of ControlD DNS, especially for blocking ads, with Private DNS in Android smartphones.:thumb:

    Blocked a few legit websites and not sure why. Also would not allow download of a Macrium Reflect update. Looks like it needs more work for sure.

    If you run a query log, you can see what is being blocked and unblock it. Nothing on *.macrium.com is being blocked, so they must use some other hostnames for this.
