Hey girls and guys, I have an issue with blokada blocking adds. There seems to be an issue with the blokada VPN connection.
Where did you download Blokada from?
Blockada.org (newest version of major release 4)
Which device do you use? Do you use a custom ROM? Do you know which OS version you are using?
Galaxy S10, EU version, Android and 10, Build number QP1A.190711.020 G973FXXU8CTG4
Please explain the issue as detailed as possible. Also include patterns you observed.
Blokada worked fine for at least a year now. Since yesterday it did not connect to its virtual VPN connection. In other words, while the blokada app said: “Blokada is active” the virtual VPN connection was not in use. Consequently no adds where blocked and the app stated: “0 blocks” while running.
What I did to track down the issue: 1 restarted the device, 2 deleted blokada cache, 3 reinstalled blokada (after restarting the device without blokada being installed), 4 restarted device, allowed all possible permissions including notification, storage, and background usage /activity (Samsung App power management), 5 enabled blokada dns server, 6 enabled the optiona “Allways on VPN” and “Block connections without VPN” in the blockada vpn connection (this leads to no data being transmitted / no internet access, Also android warns that the Allways on VPN connection is “disabled”).
Since when are you facing this issue?
Did you already try to solve the issue somehow? If so: please state what you did.
