    I understand what you mean about public and thought better of it after I posted.

    What do you set it up on? A secondary PC in your home or what? Thanks.

    I've considered getting my own if the public Pi Hole turns out to work well.

    I'm also not super worried about the privacy and security of the Public Pi Hole. I feel the odds of my site visits being scanned are lower if it's a private person instead of a massive corporation.

    I have it running on a Raspberry Pi. They're cheap and use barely any power so can be left running 24/7 in most situations.

    I guess it depends on how much you trust the person hosting it. Pi-Hole comes with lots of nice logging and graphing functionality making it very easy to see a history of DNS requests a specific IP has made. If there's only a handful of people using the service you stand out way more than when using a service with thousands of requests per second.

    Regarding security, as it's a DNS server it would be pretty easy to redirect connection attempts to fake versions of a website in order to steal login credentials.

    I don't use my computer for anything important. If someone wants to steal my Wilders account, that's fine by me :)

    I know zero about a Rasberry Pi. Guess I need to look into this.
