eBlocker Base ✕ / eBlocker Pro ✓ / eBlocker Family ✓
This page is divided into the following sections:
- Advanced settings
Here you get an overview of the used blocker features of the eBlocker. If you move the mouse over the individual symbols, you will receive further information.
Move your mouse over the status icon and you will get a short information about the filter and the number of devices using this blocker.
If you see a yellow triangle behind the status symbol, this is an extra reference to the blocker. If you move the mouse over the yellow triangle, the note is displayed.
There are three blocker features.
The domain blockers for ads and trackers block ads and trackers as soon as the domain is accessed. This blocker can also be used without activating the eBlocker SSL feature.
The Pattern Blockers for Ads and Tracker recognize the trackers and ads based on patterns. For these blockers the activation of the eBlocker SSL feature is necessary.
Malware and Phishing Blockers
Here you can see a list of all devices that currently use this blocker. If you move the mouse over the devices, a list of all devices is displayed.
Here you see a list of all blocked requests from all devices since the start of your eBlocker.
The advanced settings require the activation of the HTTPS function.
Captive Portal Check
Google Captive Portal Check is used by Google products such as Android, Chrome and Chromebooks to test whether an Internet connection exists. Your IP address is sent to the Google Captive Portal. eBlocker blocks the structure of the Google Captive Portal, otherwise Google will collect your IP address. Activate this option with one click if Android devices are often disconnected from your WLAN.
Web servers often compress the delivered web pages in order to keep the amount of data transferred on the Internet as low as possible. The eBlocker must then decompress the data to analyze the page and perform its protection features. In your local network, re-compressing on the last track to the device would not result in a speed advantage. On the contrary: The page layout is usually even faster if no new compression and decompression is used for this last track.
Only if your device is connected via eBlocker Mobile while on the go it should be compressed to the device.
Therefore the compression feature of the eBlocker offers you three settings.
The data between eBlocker and device is not compressed again.
Compression for eBlocker Mobile Devices (recommended)
As above. Only if your device connects via eBlocker Mobile while on the go, the data between eBlocker and device will be compressed.
Here the data is always compressed during transport from the eBlocker to the device.
Do Not Track
Do-Not-Track (DNT) is an HTTP header field which signals to a website that the visitor does not want a user profile to be created from the website. Unfortunately, this wish of the user is not binding and is therefore ignored by many websites.
For most browsers, this feature can be found in the privacy or security settings.
The eBlocker makes it easier for you and automatically sets the Do-Not-Track field in all requests after activation of the function.
HTTP Referrer Header
HTTP referrer headers are automatically created when you surf the Internet. The referrer displays the website you visited before you reached the current website.
By using the referrer headers, websites can partially track your surfing habits. Some websites also use the referrer headers for internal purposes. Blocking the referrer headers can therefore result in some pages no longer being displayed correctly. Decide with one click whether referrer headers should be allowed.
WebRTC is a browser technology that enables real-time communication between two parties. It is used, for example, for Internet telephony and chat.
Unfortunately, WebRTC reveals your real IP address (and even your local LAN IP) to establish the connections. Even when using Tor (IP anonymization), you can be identified by your real IP address if WebRTC is not blocked. Decide with one click whether WebRTC connections should be allowed.
