In settings on tracker blockers, when you pick ‘aggressive’ what does it do, is there a help page somewhere of what all options do?
on ‘block finger printing’, when you pick ‘strict’ on settings what exactly does it do? What exactly is blocked? is there a help page somewhere of what all options do?
whats ‘1p’ and ‘3p’
it doesnt say anything about that in settings
how could there be settings/options without any explanation or details, that doesnt make any sense
‘Many websites break if you block’
havent really seen that happen yet, but that could explain a google site
only blocked third-party stuff and not first-party, for the same reason, it was until like 3 years ago when they added 1p,
questions wasnt anything about cookies
i dont understand how this relates to questions asked
are we saying that ‘agreesive’ blocks both 3rd and 1st party cookies?
but there’s a separate settings for cookies
Trackers & ads blocking should be about other things

eh… no not really its extremely basic info, only if you have advertising cookies would there be ‘a lot of info’ sent to companies
‘couple years when they created Standard and Aggressive, which can be useful in some websites, mostly big known ones that usually don’t depend on 3p.’

I was starting to go through
https://kb.adguard.com/en/general/how-to-create-your-own-ad-filters#introduction but, as good as it appears, it still isn’t as simplistic as it should to be good for average User, especially one that’s not used to coding and all.
Guess just saying if you ever get bored, might consider it.
answer was ‘no’ basically
what exactly and specifically is in setttings ‘trackers / ad blocking’ blocking, its unclear what exactly its blocking
are there any very detail links explaining this?
is ‘trackers / ad blocking’ include ‘cookies trackers or they dont’? if it includes cookies, why is there a seperate ‘Block cookies’ settings?
if it doesnt include ‘cookies’, how could ‘trackers / ad blocking’ be blocking trackers since cookies track?
what specifically and exactly does each of the options ‘aggressi…
