Blocking 3p-frames & 3p-scripts possible ?

Added by ask low 3 months ago

I'm trying to understand uBO's advanced blocking modes. And it tends to utilise the extension capabilities, so I'm not sure whether this could be possible on native android webview renders.

Currently, blocking all 3p requests is already a thing on PB android. Is it possible to also do the same for just 3p-frames & 3p-scripts ? Caz blocking the whole 3p requests obviously breaks the sites that require.

No. As explained at, Android System WebView does not expose the information about if a request comes from a frame or a script or some other source. This makes any type of filtering based on that type of information impossible.

However, exposing that information is one of the planned features for Privacy WebView in the 4.x series. Feature #497: Add blocklist options to filter by request type
