Hi everyone, I hope you are well!
As per our release schedule, today we are releasing the following updates:
- Blokada 5.18 for Android (stable) →
- blokada.org (available)
- Google Play (read below)
- Samsung Galaxy Store (available once reviewed)
- Huawei App Gallery (available once reviewed)
- Blokada 5.18 for iOS (stable) →
- Apple App Store (available once reviewed)
We also have some other news for you, read on.
We have just introduced several new blocklists to Blokada Cloud. Those are the blocklists you know from our native Android and iOS apps. As we aim to keep the features equivalent on all platforms, now you can also activate them in Blokada Cloud.
As a reminder, you can check this intro guide for a quick how-to on Blokada Cloud beta.
As you may already know, we got removed (delisted) from Google Play a few days ago. This was totally unexpected, especially considering that the claimed reason was the title of our listing is breaking Google rules. This is unexpected, because this title hasn’t been changed for months and months.
Nevertheless, we have updated our listing, and uploaded the 5.18 update to Google for review. We hope Blokada will be soon re-listed again.
This maintenance release released to the beta channel last week is now stable. As mentioned last week, together with the major network detection changes from 5.17, this release is now released to all our stable channels.

As usual we updated the blocklists, and translations. We also made some minor bugfixes. More in the changelog.
Keep the feedback coming, and enjoy using Blokada!
Just to recap, if you haven’t been following our announcements closely, here are some shortcuts for the newest cool stuff we introduced:
