### First-party trackers

**Recommended for Android ad blockers as applications, such ad [Blokada](https://blokada.org/).**
- Hosts file: <https://hostfiles.frogeye.fr/firstparty-trackers-hosts.txt>
- Raw list: <https://hostfiles.frogeye.fr/firstparty-trackers.txt>
This list contains every hostname redirecting to [a hand-picked list of first-party trackers](https://git.frogeye.fr/geoffrey/eulaurarien/src/branch/master/rules/first-party.list).
It should be safe from false-positives.
It also contains all tracking hostnames under company domains (e.g. `website1.trackercompany.com`),
useful for ad blockers that don't support mass regex blocking,
while still preventing fallback to third-party trackers.
Don't be afraid of the size of the list, as this is due to the nature of first-party trackers: a single tracker generates at least one hostname per client (typically two).
### First-party only trackers
**Recommended for ad blockers as web browser extensions, such as [uBlock Origin](https://pi-hole.net/).**
- Hosts file: <https://hostfiles.frogeye.fr/firstparty-only-trackers-hosts.txt>
- Raw list: <https://hostfiles.frogeye.fr/firstparty-only-trackers.txt>
This is the same list as above, albeit not containing the hostnames under the tracking company domains (e.g. `website1.trackercompany.com`).
While those are technically third-party trackers, they cannot be blocked at once by some ad blockers (e.g. Pi-hole).
Use only with ad blocker able to import regular expressions and in conjuction with other block lists.
This allows for reducing the size of the list for ad-blockers that already block those third-party trackers with their support of regex blocking.
Use in conjunction with other block lists used in regex-mode, such as [Peter Lowe's](https://pgl.yoyo.org/adservers/)

As first-party trackers usually evolve from third-party trackers, this list contains every hostname redirecting to trackers found in existing lists of third-party trackers (see next section).
Since the latter were not designed with first-party trackers in mind, they are likely to contain false-positives.
In the other hand, they might protect against first-party tracker that we're not aware of / have not yet confirmed.
