Blockade is a DNS-based server software and Blockade is "off-host" or "out-of-band", standing between your router and your network running lookups against all queries and requests. In this manner Blockade protects everything that uses DNS queries to connect to the world. Your privacy and safety as well as all of your devices down to a smart refrigerator or a smart TV are being protected by Blockade.  

This means all devices; including not but limited to: 

Computers - every OS and every browser, laptops, desktops and servers, Chromebooks, tablets, iPad, iPod, iPhone, Andriod, Windows, Linux, UNIX, IBM, TVs, Netflix, DirectTV, DISH, smart appliances, etc...

Anything that communicates between your network and the outside world that may be subject to ads, analytical tools, tracking, profiling, malicious sites, etc. has to check in with Blockade, period!
