One of the most remarkable tools available in 1Blocker is the possibility of creating groups of custom rules, where each group can include different categories. In other words, you can combine a rule that hides elements, a rule that blocks trackers, and any other rules at your choice in a single set of rules.
You can build and modify groups in the “Advanced Customization” section (available on Premium, learn more: Going Premium).
The “Advanced Customization” is located right after custom categories of rules. To create a group, just tap the + button and start topping it up with your own rules of any kind.
You will definitely find custom groups useful if you want to combine and manage several rules that have something in common. For example, if they are all applied to the same website or have the same purpose. Also, certain fields available in Advanced Customization allow users to specify more precise and advanced filters, e.g., URLs.
In addition, we’d like to give you a couple of examples of handy custom groups. Each of them serves its specific purpose: saves data, blocks access to time-consuming websites, or allows you to block entire types of internet data.
Also, we have attached all these groups at the end of the article so that you can import them to your 1Blocker. They are 1Blocker compatible files that you can download and open on any device with our app installed, they will be imported automatically. As 1Blocker enables imported rules by default, please, make sure to turn them off, unless you need their powers.
