[Question] Do I still need AdGuard's filters if I have Energized?

Hello,

Since I have Energized Basic and Regional installed and enabled on Adguard, are these still needed or do I have to keep one/some of them on?


Thank you,
CyanoTex

What is Energized filters?
Here's some links:

A basic explanation from them:
This Energized System is designed for Unix-like systems, gets a list of domains that serve ads, tracking scripts and malware from multiple reputable sources and creates protection packs that prevents your system from connecting to them.

This is just HOSTS file. It does not block specific ads on the sites.

It contains domains only. Specific element on the page cannot be blocked, so Base filter is still required.

Oh, okay. One more question: For Tracking Protection filter, is that still needed or is it covered by Energized?

A lot of ads and analytics cannot be blocked by domain name. So yes, Tracking Protection filter is required.
