Diversion Diversion with iCloud Relay


Occasional Visitor
My Apple devices use iCloud Relay for privacy, if I install Diversion on my router will this break iCloud Relay or cause any other issues?

The current implementation of iCloud Relay bypasses your Diversion (or any other router bases DNS AdBlocker for that matter).
Best way to test ….
Diversion On Router Enabled, Disable iCloud Relay on Apple Devices: Ads blocked
Diversion On Router Enabled, Enable iCloud Relay on Apple Devices: Ads not blocked

As I understand it, iCloud Relay uses its own set of DNS servers (Cloudflare) and bypasses all local DNS setup. It is almost like a VPN, but only for DNS traffic.
