Puffer: Privacy Protection & Ad-Blocking Mod Apk
With just one click, Puffer will protect you against the malware and harmful trackers embedded in the Android ecosystem. The VPN connection’s other end is located on your phone. There, Puffer checks outbound connections and blocks connections to any services that might track you.
Technical Description: Puffer, a packet level filter for Android uses the VPN interface in order to decode raw packets. Register as a VPN to enable Android to send raw IP packets directly to your application. Puffer emulates a networkcard and does complementary Linux socket operations, but it keeps track of TLS traffic. Puffer then reads each TLS connection’s initial ClientHello packet and extracts its SNI headers. This is used to block and classify streams. This mechanism allows Puffer to block streams, without having to decrypt their contents.
You don’t have to trust a third-party VPN server, as your data is not encrypted.
Puffer works better than PiHole NextDNS or other DNS-based solutions. Puffer can still be used even if an application is using a non-standard DNS resolution.
Trackers are kept track by us so that you know how intrusive your favorite websites are.
