I like to know if the free version always has (end to end) encryption, and how does it work?
The free version (also called Blokada Libre) does support encryption for the DNS requests.
Basically only you and the DNS provider can see that it was you who queried for example.com.
However the traffic that you send after the DNS lookup, is not encrypted. For example your ISP may collect statistics, shape your traffic, block some types of traffic, collect statistics on what you’re doing and share the data with 3rd parties.
Another example would be that a malicious user at the hotel WiFi may redirect you through their own network, maybe to try to collect your credentials or to try to break into your device.
To have full encryption also for the traffic outside of DNS queries which secures against above, you would need to use Blokada Plus.
