iOS 9/10 - Untrusted Hosts Blocker - 1.2.2

5.00/5 (2 投票数).

Blocks around 3,000 blacklisted hosts!
.
This tweak's main goal is to block a maximum of third-party hosts used by your applications that have been identified as collecting personal and confidential data (location, contacts, UDID, etc.) for commercial, tracking or advertising purpose.
.
This package will add all blacklisted hosts to your /etc/hosts file. It will NOT overwrite your custom hosts file (if you already have custom entries in your hosts file, they will remain untouched)!
.
If you are unhappy with this hack you can uninstall this package. It will ONLY remove the installed entries by the tweak and leave untouched any other entries you may have added manually to the hosts file. But make sure to wait until the end of the uninstallation process. In case your hosts file is broken (should never happen), the installation or uninstallation script will repair it.
.
If Internet is not working on your device anymore after installing this tweak, it means your /etc/hosts file is too big for mDNSResponder. If that happens, please uninstall this tweak, then install "Hosts Cleaner" and reinstall this tweak.
.
Avoid combining this tweak with other hosts blocker tweaks as they may interfere with your customized /etc/hosts file.
.
IMPORTANT: Due to /etc/hosts filesize limitations on iOS 9, this version mainly focuses on blocking hosts that can impact your privacy or security. Some of the most common advertisement hosts are still blocked by this version but a lot had to be removed from the previous UHB versions. Therefore, I cannot guarantee that you won't see any ads at all. If you are looking to block advertisements I recommend "Minimal Hosts Blocker" made by @ReddestDream.
.
Please only send me blocking requests for intrusive hosts. I will no longer consider requests for harmless advertisement hosts. Sorry.
.
UPDATED: v1.1.0 (24/03/2016) - Optimisation: Replaced all 0.0.0.0 ips by 0. + New hosts.
v1.1.1 (24/03/2016) - Minor fix: Fixed blocked hosts count upon removal.
