Pi – Ultimate Blocking with PiHole

Got a Pi-hole, but some ads are still making their way through? Perhaps you are not blocking enough ad domains…

To fix this, open a browser session to this page on your pi: http:/localaddress/admin/settings.php?tab=blocklists (replace localaddress with your Pi IP)

Insert the text list from here: https://v.firebog.net/hosts/lists.php

(Be sure to only use the ticked list to not cause any false positives.)


Blocked too many domains? Try Resetting the block list to the defaults…

SSH into your Pi and run the following commands:

sudo rm /etc/pihole/adlists.list

sudo pihole -g

sudo reboot
