Introducing Exodus Privacy to Blokada

Starting with v5.5, a new blocklist is available in Blokada, based on the Exodus Privacy Project!

Credits: the Exodus Privacy database.

How to use it?

Please note, despite the best effort to avoid any incompatibilities, this is an early preview, and it may break some of sites you visit, or apps you use.

In order to activate it on Android (Blokada 5):

  • Open “Advanced” tab
  • Tap “Blocklists”
  • Find “Exodus Privacy” at the bottom, and activate it

In order to activate it on Android (Blokada 4):

  • This will come to Blokada 4 next week (with stable releases).

In order to activate it on iOS:

  • This is currently not available on iOS.

How is it made?

We have developed a script that generates the blocklist. It will not include entries for very common subdomains, like www or api, that could easily break things.

With this approach, we decided to err on the side of caution. Currently, the final list includes around 500 hosts, so it’s recommended to also activate one of the more common blocklists.

We will adapt the script based on your feedback, so feel free to comment on this article!
