personalDNSfilter - a DNS filter with encrypted DNS support - for your privacy.

personalDNSfilter is a DNS filter app for Android. It hooks into the domain name (DNS) resolution and blocks access to filtered hosts. It can be used for filtering any unwanted hosts which are related to malware, phishing, tracking and more based on a host list.

It will be an eye opener, when you see the personalDNSfilter live log showing all the different domains accessed from your mobile under the hood.

On Android 4.2 and newer it can be used as effective malware, tracking and ad server filter without root access!

personalDNSfilter is also a DNS changer app, you can set any upstream DNS server you trust. It also supports encrypted DNS servers via DoH (DNS over HTTPS) and DoT (DNS over TLS).

Filtering is completely local - no tracking, no data is sent to us!

You can run it locally on your device or centrally as DNS server in your network.
