My configuration is as follows but it has been happening for a while so not limited to Blokada or Messenger versions.
Blokada 5 v23.1.10
Samsung Messenger v184.108.40.206
I have tried a number of block lists but am currently using Energized and Exodus Privacy as well as a manually adding a number of blocked exceptions to pick up the missed ads.
Basically the issues is that Samsung Messenger will take forever to upload or download media (images, gif, etc). If I disable Blokada the content seems to transfer immediately. I may be blocking it with my personal excluded list or with the two standard block lists. I’ve been running Blokada on various phones for years and don’t recall this being an issue in the past. I have gotten more aggressive with my personal excluded list recently, but it was cleared a few months ago and I don’t recall it making much difference.
Is there a known server that I need to manually allow? I tried disabling Blokada to see if it would show up after transferring a file but nothing showed up. I’m not sure of another approach to locate the server to allow or if perhaps this is something within Blokada I don’t have control over?
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!
