Remember that you don’t need to reach 100% for the test to indicate that you have strong protection. The author of the test himself wrote it in the FAQs: A green score indicates a satisfactory level of protection. There is no need to aim for a perfect score.
Per PG’s suggestion, I try to stick to the uBlock defaults. I do however add Actually Legitimate URL Shortener Tool per PG and arkenfox’s suggestion. I also enable the Fanboy and uBlock Annoyances lists uBlock ships because giant cookie consent pop ups really annoy me.
For coverage beyond desktop web browsers, I point my DNS to CondtrolD’s OISD or StevenBlack filtering servers. StevenBlack seems to be popular and well maintained, so I use it on my devices, and OISD claims to prioritize functionality over blocking, so I recommend it to non-technical people.
sounds more like a problem for them than for us. Honestly I would not give a damn if they copy mine, I am just contributing to fight the stupd trackers, malware etc. I do get your point in that’s not all to nice to do this but for the end user all that matters is a good list and OISD is such one.
I actually might change the license on mine to allow for that. I once planned to use ddg data so that’s why i have this but we never really got through with it because their data was quite unusable.
oisd is a bit too lenient with its whitelisting imo, it whitelists some google tracking domains for e.g as some people might use google shopping ads.
I’d recommend hagezi’s which i’ve found equally as hassle-less in that i dont need to maintain a whitelist because of it, despite being more effective. The devs really active with maintaining it, basically online 24/7 lol
