Yes. NextDNS is my first line of defense. I have it set up on all devices that allow custom DNS and I haven't hit the cap for the free tier yet.
DNS is essential because literally 100% of my devices do not run Windows so I'm relying on NextDNS to do essential blocking for my Macbook, my PS5, my smart TV, my phone, my Router and anything that connects to it including my backup server. Not resolving phony domains is my first layer of defense, and it's shocking to see how many tracking and malvertising websites these devices naturally connect to without my knowledge. Remember security is also about being in control of what type of data enters and leaves your computer. It doesn't always have to be classical malware. Sometimes it's the good companies that do the most damage.
