Ad And Stuff Blocker (AASB) is an ad and other stuff content blocker specifically for Safari on Mac OSX and iOS. Its goal is to provide the best "out of the box" experience. There are no fancy statistics or fancy UI - just a simple UI to whitelist websites, which hopefully you won't need. AASB for Safari on iOS provides a comparable experience.
Ad And Stuff VPN Content Filter (AASVPN) for Android uses the VPN feature to optionally block ads and porn in all apps, not just web browsers. Think of it as a way to have your own hosts file for Android. To do this, it intercepts DNS (how names like google.com are translated to IP addresses) requests only. If the request is for a domain in the hosts database, then returns an Unknown reply to the calling app. Otherwise, it forwards the request to the DNS server, which is OpenDNS for the time being, but can be changed in the preferences. Except for DNS calls, all of the traffic goes directly from your device outside the VPN to the destination as if the VPN was not running.
AASVPN also allows DNS customization, setting the device IP address in case the default one, 10.11.12.13, conflicts with another one on your network, modifying the hosts database, and turning ad and porn filtering on and off.
Ad And Stuff Host File Manager is a Mac program that allows you to modify the host file. It comes with host files for ad and porn blocking that can be applied individually. You can also add and remove domains.
Porn And Stuff Blocker (PASB) is a porn site content blocker specifically for Safari on Mac OSX and iOS. Like AASB, its goal is to provide the best "out of the box" experience. It also has no fancy statistics or fancy UI - just a simple UI to blacklist websites, which hopefully you won't need. PASB for Safari on iOS provides a comparable experience.
Please contact us with websites where stuff isn't blocked, websites are not rendered properly, or any other feedback. AASB, PASB, and AASVPN cannot become the best blockers without a little help.
