Haven’t tested the list, but the marketing team needs to attend some creative courses urgently.

I just researched the list and I am welcomed to Windscribe website with this:

Social networks are one of the most pervasive privacy violators out there. Much like with crack cocaine, it’s hard to go cold turkey. We’ll make it easier for you. This list will block all social networks and their associated trackers. If you must use 1 of them, you can whitelist it via a custom access rule.
And this:
Internet is 90% porn, so this list is the biggest one we have. Blocks all sexually explicit content. Handy on kid-friendly networks and those morally opposed to pornography.

And this:
I have always found them to be unprofessional. They think that they are a group of jokers, but I found none of their so-called jokes funny and they are very aggressive like immature teenagers.

Issue I had with Robert is if I had a needed site blocked such as buying something it wasn't simple to turn off ad blocking whereas with browser blocking or AdGuard for Windows etc it's a mouse click away.
Doesn't sound good.

They think that they are a group of jokers, but I found none of their so-called jokes funny and they are very aggressive like immature teenagers.
For the 10GB Free, you need the Email newsletters, which I have them filtered to the auto-delete. I might just delete my account, if I ROBERT isn't on par with DDG (beta) or TrackerControl (best).

Not sure but I would think It's probably just using easylist, OISD or Adguard blocklist or similar block list to do it's blocking. Nothing special or fancy.
What about for Android?

What are you using to enable use of EasyList/Lists on Android?
NextDns. I have easylist + OISD + notracking (from memory, haven't checked my lists in a long time)

*edit* VPN? Not sure if my VPNs have adblocking, I'll check. I don't browse the web on my mobile (rarely if ever). Only apps.
