    Hi.

    As Simplified Filter is composed from several other filters (English filter, Social media filter, Spyware filter, Mobile ads filter, EasyList and EasyPrivacy), does it mean we can/should d├ęsactivante those filters?

    Just asking because having Simplified Filter selected does not show the same number of rules versus each other filter activated separately.

    Thanks
    B.

    Hi
    This filter is used for system-wide filtering on iOS. I don't recommend to use it instead of usual filters.

    My question is in fact related to iOS.

    If this filter - Simplified Filter - is activated should I deactivate all the others - English filter, Social media filter, Spyware filter, Mobile ads filter, EasyList and EasyPrivacy - ?

    Let me please explain. It is composed of other filters indeed, but it includes third-party ad and tracking servers only, so it can't replace those filters.
