      juliank I've been using Apple Private Relay on 15.1 and the betas nicely together with NextDNS for weeks. Ads are all blocked. Instead of disabling Private Relay, you could just disable NextDNS's block page feature. This makes filtering work again.

      Chris So some of the compatibility problems of 15.0 have been fixed?

      Rob I didn't start with the 15.0 betas, but sometime later. I remember however that NextDNS has been working with Private Relay even before the 15.1 betas. The compatibility issues that were mentioned a while ago by NextDNS aren't important to my use case at all, because I don't use the NextDNS block page feature or DNS rewrites. I also couldn't care less if the status light on the setup page isn't green. I've been running DNS tests at all times during the betas and as mentioned by NextDNS, the DNS is duplicated. Speed decrements are not noticeable for me while browsing. Ads are blocked. Logs and analytics work fine. I don't see the problem. It might not be the final solution they are looking for from Apple, but in the meantime I'm fine with not using the block page feature (I never have to begin with).

      I don't think anything has changed during the 15.0.1 – 15.1 timeframe and with the latest betas. Full compatibilty is not here yet, but I use NextDNS for ad- and tracker-blocking, not the few underlined features mentioned above.

      juliank The setting you refer to is iCloud Private Relay. I thought this was clear. However, as mentioned above, you can use it together with NextDNS with some caveats. All you need to do is to disable the block page feature in NextDNS from your settings tab.

      juliank I'm afraid what you're saying is incorrect. The Safari feature you are referring to is iCloud Private Relay (hiding your IP from trackers and websites when you are an eligible iCloud+ subscriber), which you can easily read up on in Apple's documentation or see by clicking the “Learn more…“ link in the Safari settings. It will open the iCloud Private Relay system preferences. 

      Other users and NextDNS themselves have confirmed that blocking works even with Private Relay enabled, it just comes with some caveats that are not yet fixed by Apple. You can easily test this on browserleaks.com, which will show DNS duplication. The NextDNS DNS is used for filtering first and Apple's CDN partners provide the egress proxy DNS. You will see both. NextDNS logs and analytics also reflect that this works.

      If it doesn't work for you, you might use some other setting that interferes.

      juliank your tone suggests to me that you are fine with the solution you found and I won't involve myself further after this comment in trying to help.

      As to your question… you are referring to a Safari feature you found as if it was something separate from iCloud Private Relay, which it is not. NextDNS and the Safari feature you are referring to work together for filtering, as mentioned in an older comment by NextDNS themselves in another thread and several other users.

      juliank that’s wrong. Private Relay doesn’t create a local VPN nor is Private Relay a VPN.

      DynamicNotSlow bruh, yes it does, but again im saying the safari feature.. hard to read isnt it?

       

      when I enable that safari option.  Its doesn’t block ads, when its off nextdns blocks it.. try yourself from the settings path i gave you

      juliank It's something Apple and Cloudflare worked together to make its called ODOH you can Google it for more information, it's not a VPN it just hides the DNS requesters IP address. So for finding the said domain your IP is hidden but your traffic isn't encrypted like a VPN. They are completely different things. Private Relay and the Settings you mentioned are just the same, different names for different platforms such as iOS and Mac OS again you can check for yourself on Apples website about Private relay.

      DynamicNotSlow same. Nextdns is working for me with apple private relay on. I don’t use the blockpage feature so i dont have any issues having both enabled.

       

      ijulianv is probably confuse on the two.
