Strange VPN Hosts


Recommended Posts

There's a simple no-root app called Strange VPN Hosts that adds a strong layer of security to your Internet using a Hosts file, which can normally only be used if you have root on Android.


Here's a quick tutorial:

1. Install Strange VPN:

2. Right-click http://winhelp2002.mvps.org/hosts.txt and save it as Hosts.txt 

3. Import that list into Strange VPN and turn it on.

4. Set it to be an Always-on VPN with this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=it.claudio.chimera.vpn

It can be switched off from auto-start, you can set other VPN apps to auto-start with that app.

You can compile your own Host.txt file or use one from another source and it'll work. I used the MVPS hosts as an example because it's lightweight, efficient and regularly updated.

I've attached the HOSTS file I'm using with Strange VPN below, I merged MVPS with Adaway to block ads on the Internet and inside apps too. Simply extract the TXT file and import it into the VPN.[1]

Here you can merge multiple HOSTS.txt files to create your own custom HOSTS for Strange VPN:
Duplicate entries from the resulting merged hosts files can be removed here to speed up and optimize VPN:

I will maintain this TXT file for Strange VPN with periodic updates in this thread. As the best possible file to import into it. :)
