    Hi,

    In the Privacy Settings / Blacklist, is it possible to add custom rules, like the one below, are these correct and accepted ?

    Code:
    adserver.com^$media

    Thanks a lot TheHasagi, I was under the impression that that specific list was purely for DNS/hosts-file like lists, and thus didn't accept any modifiers but rather pure blank hosts.

    I really wonder if this is doing what it should though, I mainly try to block ad videos from playing in iOS games,
    After closely observing the VPN request, I created a whole lot of block entries like below, but so far all ad video continue to seem requested. :eek:
    Code:
    ||adserver.com^$media,object

    Unfortunately, there are no 100% guarantees to block all ad videos in iOS games.

    Unfortunately, I abandoned the testing program.
    While I had all blocking rules in the privacy tab regarding the VPN, nothing was blocked.
    When I had configured my iOS to use the local proxy on my PC, I could see all those kinds of MP4 files being requested anyway.

    P.S. This wasn't tested using 1 game, but rather multiple. And ALL of them seem to request around the VPN.
