Defender - a privacy guard for SailfishOS.
As an alternative/replacement to the Hosts Adblock, Defender uses the /etc/hosts approach - a proven way of blocking ads, banners, 3rd party cookies, 3rd party page counters etc. by adding blocking rules to the /etc/hosts system file. Bundled with a simple cookie manager, it allows to choose from multiple sources, either from a safe GUI (which does not require root access), or by editing the configuration files.
This allows to easily enable and disable different sources, while still keeping your system in non-root environment.
This app uses a modified version of the python-hosts library.
Sources of ad/spyware blocking rules and their websites are to be found in the application itself. Do not forget to thank/donate to their creators.
Mind that the app is still in an early version, so use with caution, as damage may occur. You have been warned. Please let me know if you experience any problems.
Data costs may apply, so check the WLAN only option to be safe from the data cost from your provider. Updating may take a long time, depending on the size of the sources.
Also, it is unlikely that the third party sources available in the app may compromise your device, but it may happen (that is why none are enabled by default). Enable only sources you trust - I am not responsible for their contents.
