    Blokada 4 had been working flawlessly on my phone for over a year but then I made the mistake of following an in app prompt and upgrading to 5 and now everything is a giant dumpster fire. 5 was a hot mess on my phone so I had to uninstall it and reinstall 4. Now facebook keeps being allowed to access my phone and mine my personal data no matter how many times I block it. I am serious anti-facebook, hate how is baked into Samsung phones, and my main concern with Blokada is that it’s allowing facebook to data mine my phone. always gets through now: the site, graphs, and more. This NEVER happened before I installed 5 and had to reinstall 4. Never. I’m so mad I messed with something that was working perfectly. Facebook and things that were blocked remained blocked before I updated…they weren’t always allowed to go through like this and it’s really concerning.
  4. Since when are you facing this issue?
    Since reinstalling 4.
  5. Did you already try to solve the issue somehow? If so: please state what you did.

This issue cannot be caused by us. V4 did not change. Consider using Wildcards to block Facebook. Additionally: how did you discover that you’re still reaching Facebook?

I think it was because I had too many lists active. I only had a few but I think that was what was doing it. I only have one now and am manually blocking all facebook domains and I think it’s alright now. Thank you.
