The Pi-hole Alternative - KeexyBox provides good internet features

KeexyBox is a pihole alternative build with several new features,

KeexyBox allows you to do parental control, block ads, limit telemetry, and browse the Internet anonymously from your home network without installing any software on your devices.

It is a software program which requires a Raspberry PI box and which is installed on Raspbian.

It constitutes a cut-off point between your devices (computers, tablets, smartphones, etc.) and your router or Internet box. 

KeexyBox acts as a default gateway and DNS server for the devices in your home network. It thus intercepts all connections to the Internet to carry out website filtering or to activate browsing via the Tor anonymity network according to connection profiles which you have configured.

The steps to install KeexyBox will be as follows:
