Toggling protection

Refreshing rules

If your hosts file was modified, you may want TBlock to refresh its rules (update the hosts file without updating your filter lists). To do so:

tblock -H

The long operation:

tblock --update-hosts

Disabling protection

To disable the protection and restore your default hosts file, run:

tblock -D

With the long operation:

tblock --disable

Enabling protection

If you disabled TBlock, it is easy to enable its protection again:

tblock -E


tblock --enable
