How to make Blokada start on boot (auto start)?

It is recommended to keep Blokada running in background at all times. To make it start automatically when you turn on (or restart) your device, please do the following:

Blokada 5 for Android (and Blokada 5 Slim)

  • Activate Always on VPN. This will cause your system to keep the app running at all times, and start it on boot.

Blokada 5 for iOS

  • Activate Connect on Demand. This will cause your system to keep the app running at all times, and start it on boot. You will find this option in System Settings, search for VPN, and find Blokada. You will have to have activated the app at least once beforehand.

Blokada v4 for Android (and older)

  • Use the “Start on boot” switch in app settings menu.

I have done this, it’s checked off for keep alive, but it doesn’t start on boot. 4 always started on boot flawlessly, but 5 always says deactivated in the keep alive notification, which is a problem since I have my phone set to restart every morning. Every time I go back to the keep alive settings again, it’s toggled back off again.

Does not work on vankyo s30 android ver 9. “Always on vpn” gets reset to off on every reboot or power off. Blokada 5 and older.

Update: my VPN service does NOT get disconnected when tab goes into sleep mode but blokada vpn does. What is the difference?
