Start screen status information permanently turn off Blokada Android 8

Hello, how can I get this message window out of there permanently? I have always switched on Blokada and always see it under the clock when I am not using the device. I didn’t see anything in the guides and in discussions, but my English is not so fluent and I use a translator here.
I would be very grateful for help, because it bothers me a lot.
Device: Samsung Galaxy S7 Original ROM - Blokada by F-Droid
Best wishes

A fellow German, how nice:D!
That’s basically something like the third picture, but on the Home screen. Good, now we know, what we are facing. This is a system-side notification. On some devices you can deactivate it by long-pressing the notification or swiping it to the left (a gear icon appears, tap that). On other devices this is not possible. Did you try these steps already?

Yes German, in the east, city of Leipzig :slight_smile:
Yes, I can wipe away other notifications, but this one is marked with a lock and probably that’s why it can’t be moved. But the hint with long press was helpful! By holding down the button I got options, I could switch off the notifications about the VPN status in the system - problem solved! I tried to find the setting location in the system myself to turn off all notifications on the start screen, but couldn’t get there. So by pressing and holding I will also turn off other things there permanently, then I don’t have to wipe away all the time, thanks! Very communicative these devices, but please not already on the lock screen when I just want to look at the clock :wink:
Thank you very much cC and I hope it helps maybe also others. Also a big thank you to all who work on Blokada!
Summer greetings!

Haven’t had the chance to visit that city yet, unfortunately… but I am looking forward to doing that one day:D

Wuhu, I am very happy that you were able to find a solution!
I understand it, one doesn’t need these information on the lock screen, I totally agree.
Thank you very much for attaching the screenshots! I am sure this will help many users:)

In the name of the team: you are very welcome:D.
Have a great summer ahead of you.
cC :slight_smile:
