Hello, I have had Blokada for a few days now and haven’t purchased until last night, I have scrolled these topics/ Freq. ?'s, support, Android, VPN, DNS, connection issues, support, etc. everything was smooth at first app showed orange ring, but no VPN in app, still showing libre in app, settings in app are- Blokada cloud/Y, start on boot/Y, keep alive/Y, ping network/Y, I have visited Blokada.org and have set up all the same necessary controls as in app, It may have disconnected while inputting another device while in the online dashboard, that’s when I first noticed it. I am also using both wireless and mobile network, when I fill in necessary info to get the Blokada cloud click to copy and go to settings to private DNS to paste and start I get connections failed, never have been able to access after getting several times, restarted several times in the config client on dashboard, I also haven’t deleted app and started over, afraid I’d lose the unique ID. HELP!
(Any and all advice is greatly appreciated! )
Hey thanks for the input friend, so how do I continue to use the VPN?, Does it work through Blokada Cloud automatically?. What’s the preferred method for the most secure and anonymous setup?. Thanks in advance
If you chose to use Blokada Cloud and uninstall the Blokada v5 app, you can still use the VPN by installing the official WireGuard app.
The WireGuard configuration file can be downloaded on app.blokada.org.
You can read about the benefits of Blokada Cloud here:
Both solutions are fine, the choice of which to use is up to your preferences. Just don’t try to use both at the same time
The default list is OISD, it works great in most cases.
You can experiment with additional lists when you experience that something is missing or if you know in advance you want to block something extra
Blokada Cloud also allows you to add entries to your own list just as with the app, but through the web dashboard.
**EDIT I have completed the above advice to the T and to no avail… I’ve deleted the app, generated new I.D. and posted it to my DNS, at first it worked… Few minutes later I get a notification showing I haven’t got a connection. VPN is instant lnstalled and working, but can’t find DNS.
Hi RPMozley thanks for the response, I actually can’t get it to work, don’t know what I’m going wrong but I do have DNS off, I copied and pasted the Blokada VPN in the setup manager, applied it to Wireguard app, deleted the Blokada app, and am trying to go through the cloud. But when I activate the VPN I can’t get any connections?
1, Is Blokada plus subscription active?
2, Cloud subscription also?
For wireguard you said you copied and pasted the connection settings, I thought you get a configuration file for that. I don’t have b+ vpn so I only know what has been said about it.
Anyway, it seems like the wireguard setup isn’t quite right. If you have B-cloud set in the private DNS ok, it’s probably best to only have that on for the moment and keep wireguard off (until you can get it working correctly).
Yes I have Blokada+,
Yes cloud is up and running, and yes you are correct, I downloaded the config. File and uploaded on the Wireguard app. Thanks by the way for the help. BTW I thought you can use Bcloud and VPN together? That was my understanding from all the documentation and help sections?.
*private dns off, wireguard uninstalled, blokada uninstalled = has internet
*private dns off, wireguard uninstalled, blokada app active = no internet
-ACTIVE YES, NET YES
*private dns off, wireguard on, blokada app uninstalled = no internet
-DON’T USE THE APP ANYMORE ONLY CLOUD
*private dns on, wireguard uninstalled, blokada app uninstalled = no internet
Sorry for the delay very busy at work currently.
Regardless of I am using WiFi or data cannot get service through the VPN?.
Thanks for the help.
I’m very confused by this discussion and what the current situation is
As I understand it you currently don’t have the Blokada v5 app installed, you’re trying to get Blokada Plus (VPN) working with WireGuard. While WireGuard is deactivated, Blokada Cloud is working fine with the private dns setting.
Also you already tried connecting both on mobile and on WiFi.
