Pi-hole: How to Set Up and Configure Pi-hole on Raspberry Pi
Bad ads are everywhere you turn on the internet, disrupting the overall user experience. They exist in various forms, from visually-disruptive video ads that take over your browser window, to ads that inject malware onto the page to steal your personal data without you knowing it.
If you want to stop ads like these, you use an ad block: so far, so good. These aren't available for every device, however, so what about an ad block that works for every single internet-connected device across your network?
Pi-hole is ad-blocking software for the Raspberry Pi single-board computer that can do just that, blocking common ad networks from loading ads on all devices across your network.
To use Pi-hole, you'll need to first install and set it up on your Raspberry Pi by following the instructions listed here. While these instructions have been written with Raspberry Pi OS (Raspbian) users in mind, they may also work for other Linux distributions and devices.
