Tired of webpages that are chock-full of ads and malware – impossible to use? This kit will make a Raspberry Pi 3 act as a DNS (Domain Name Server) The kind of device that tells you that adafruit.com is known as IP address 126.96.36.199.
Except, when Pi Hole DNS is installed, it will do a special trick, when it is asked for the IP address of ads.adserver.com (for example) it will return nothing! So you will never even connect to the ad server and get the ad. Your connection will be faster, less data, and no intrusive ads. It works great on computers, tablets, phones, etc. Even if you cannot run an ad-blocker plugin on your phone or tablet, this will work and ad-blocker-detectors can’t tell you’re running it.
Upgrade to this Pi-Hole Ad Detection for Raspberry Pi and 2.8″ PiTFT Kit!
This pack does not contain a Raspberry Pi comptroller – that’s because you probably have one kicking around and maybe you want to pick one model over the other. We recommend the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B – tried and true, this Pi works great and has both WiFi and Ethernet. You can also use a Pi 2 (doesn’t have built-in WiFi so a dongle is required, or just stick to Ethernet).
This requires installing PADD (Pi-hole Ad Detection Display) and Pi-Hole on the Adafruit 2.8″ PiTFT Plus to display useful and fun statistics such as Amount of Pi-holed Advertisements, and the top offending domain attempting to serve pesky advertisements to your network.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
