We're now in a world where privacy is getting more & more traction & is making its way on to people's agenda. I stumbled across Flter last night on Kickstarter and was blown away by their product & service - they were super quick to answer my queries. I therefore knew I had to list it for you happy hunters to see. As you'll see in their launch video, the router has ad-blocking capability built in for ANY device using your home network (think consoles, tablets, TVs etc), together with secure encryption for your general internet usage. This is the last 24 hours that you can support their Kickstarter but given they'll be shipping units in June, it won't be long before we can retire our tin hats & get it in our hands.

Nice. Though not a huge fan of ad blocking realising that a lot of content creators rely on it but perhaps that can be switched off? VPN/Encryption appeals for privacy

@andreaskam Hi Andreas! By default Flter only blocks malicious advertisements, harmful websites, and services that track you. These can be customized or turned off at anytime.

@pdefine nice! Thanks for the clarity!

Did anybody else have trouble understanding her?

Hi David, how do you compile the list of malicious / privacy-intrusive ads? There're services like Ghostery and Disconnect. I wonder if your standard of blocking criteria is similar to theirs.
