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

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):
- Open the bottom menu
- Navigate to Adblocking -> Host Lists

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
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!
