    Hey guys long time been here, but got a question for you all. I have a Private Internet Access license that is about to expire and need a new VPN provider. I use Adguard on my devices and was reading on it working along side its own Adguard VPN. Anyone used Adguard VPN before and if so what did you think?

    I have it installed alongside AdGuard on my Android phone.
    Seems to work fine until it has connection to server issues.
    This happens randomly, sometimes not for days.
    AdGuard VPN is still in beta.

    Edit:
    1 day after latest update and no issues thus far.
    Hopefully the random connection issues are fixed.

    Hi!

    I would like to use RethinkDNS on my Android and I am wondering if any of you know any good/reliable Dnscrypt resolver that I could use (I live in Central Europe)?

    Welcome to the forum. There is a constantly updated list of DNS servers here, one of which will hopefully meet your needs: https://github.com/curl/curl/wiki/DNS-over-HTTPS

    Good choice of phone, VPN and DNS/ad blocking.
    I guess you use Blokada from github, instead of Playstore.
    Did you try Blokada-dns, vs Adguard-dns?

    Got it from their website, blokada.org.

    Using Adguard dns, haven't tried any others.

    I did not know Blokada had dns. How does it compare to Adguard?

    They have over 20 DNS providers you can choose from.

    I'm also using Blokada. I used Adguard DNS over TLS in Android before it, and I like that you can whitelist apps in Blokada if there's a problem with an app.

    I use Adguard DNS in Blokada on mobile data for maximum data saving, and I use Blokada DNS on WiFi networks. At home I use the network's DNS (PrivateVPN) and it all just works fine for me.

    I've just got a text message (on iPhone) - bypassing any DNS or VPN settings - from 1-725-247-3221 (Somewhere in Nevada).
    The text said:
    "Your browsing history showed visits to unsecured websites.
    You now have (3) virus on your device.
    Clean your phone - click right here - ASAP."

    I don't know how to totally block that kind of spam text messages.

    Good to know. I am pretty much an Adguard guy but am curious to check out Blokada has I have not tried it in years. Thanks!

    You can't block text messages with a DNS or VPN...

    On iOS I don't think you can filter text messages at all. Aside from blocking the sender, that is.

    uBlock Origin extension for Firefox, used to block ads on the a few news websites that I read. No other security at all, never had any trouble with any of my Android phones.
