Privacy levels

Using privacy levels you can specify which level of detail you want to see in your Pi-hole statistics. The privacy level may be changed at any time without having to restart the DNS resolver. Note that queries with (partially) hidden details cannot be disclosed with a subsequent reduction of the privacy level. They can be changed either from the Settings page on the dashboard or in FTL's config file.
