Hi everyone, I hope you are well! A few quick updates for you.

The issue

As you may know, we had some trouble the last few days. You can read more about it here. This release should fix it for most users.

Other updates

As usual, all blocklists have been updated to their newest versions, and translations have been pulled.

Google Play, started to accept our updates again, so hopefully this one will go out faster…

Thanks for the update.
This works as it used to do.



I just installed the new 5.10.1 version from the Blokada website. If the feature “Encrypt DNS” is enabled browsing the web in Brave is extremely slow. Versions 5.8.0 and 5.9.0 also exhibit this issue. Once the “Encrypt DNS” feature is disabled the issue is gone.

Please let me know if you need any further information.

Thank you for your hard work and awesome product!


Same here. If the feature “Encrypt DNS” is enabled browsing the web in Brave is extremely slow. When disabled, the issue is gone. For example, a page that opens in less than a second needs almost 30 seconds to open when “encrypt dns” is enabled.

Using version 5.8.0.

Thank you for all your hard work on this great app!


Updated to new release and internet still doesn’t work with blokada dns. Like pages won’t load at all

Yes You are supposed to change the DNS for now until we solve that too. The update should change it automatically.

Unfortunately no improvement with Brave despite the update. I shut off the DNS encryption in order to make it work. Still thank you for your hard work.

Brave is a separate issue indeed: Brave Browser is slowing down with Blokada activated
