CloudFlare DNS (1.1.1.1) - Adblock stopped?

Does CloudFlare still provide ad blocking on its free 1.1.1.1 service? I used it for quite a while at the router level and was happy with it. However, I have noticed a lot of ads recently and assumed that CloudFlare has stopped blocking in favor of promoting its Warp service.

Does anyone know if this is true? I couldn't seem to confirm it myself. I'm discussing Pinhole, although I'm not a big fan of running our media PC 24/7. Are there any other good options like CloudFlare?

I don't remember 1.1.1.1 ever having an adblock function. Are you sure you're not mistaken?

There are a couple that come to mind...

dns.adguard.com this is one of them from AdGuard that you can use for free.
NextDNS.io it is currently free during its beta phase. After that, you get ad blocking for 300,000 requests per month, and $2 USD/month after that for an unlimited number of requests

Adguard basically installs it and forgets about it. You can't configure it at all. While NextDNS is basically a cloud-based Pi Hole, and you have a lot more configuration options like filter lists to use, whitelists, blacklists, and so on.

If you have an Android device running on Android 9 or higher, you can use its private DNS function and use a service like NextDNS to block ads on your phone

The Iphone can be run on something as small as a PiZero, so this is what I prefer.

CloudFlare is a kind of adblock, at least that's what I understood from its description. If I understand correctly, I would be wondering what good features this adblock has. Can it stop ads on sites like Facebook or YouTube? Or just from simple sites in Google. I would like to have the best adblock that exists so that I don't get casino sites, bets, or anything else ...... Maybe someone will advise me. Aah, I also found a pretty interesting article, I would say it's more like AdBlock for chrome rating. But your opinion matters to me, too.

Oh, I've been searching for this kind of source for so long, thanks
