Managing filter lists permissions

Change the permissions

By default, filter lists are only allowed to define blocking rules. However, you can grant them the permission to define allowing or redirecting rules.

To grant a filter list allowing and blocking permissions (in this example easylist):

tblock -M easylist -p AB

Or the long operation:

tblock --mod easylist --permissions AB

Note: the letter A stands for Allowing rules, B for Blocking rules, and R for Redirecting rules.

To grant a filter list allowing and redirecting permission only:

tblock -M easylist -p AR

Note: redirecting rules can compromise your network traffic and lead to MITM attacks. Be sure to fully trust the filter lists you grant the "redirecting" permission.

To restore the default permissions (blocking only):

tblock -M easylist -p B
