Almost perfect. No more ads on Android! Works very well with all apps and browsers and does not need a rooted device. If I could remove the notifications completely I would not even notice that it always runs in the background.

ADguard for Android is still top of its game, so incredibly powerful it does cosmetic details and changes to every web page you visit if you wish. it has an in webpage assistant it even also runs extensions! Blokada does not have these abilities especially adjusting cosmetically every web page, Blokada used to have a mission. privacy and security the developers of changed and rerouted their their priorities the ultimate goal is to get you into their app and to get their VPN service which they push on you. with theforementioned alternative they also have a VPN but they also integrate with tor project while equally doing all the blocking. all the industry is coming down on these services they are doing their best to get rid of anything to do with blocking their ads choose something and choose wisely

It does not block ads, it requires you to have a clean phone/tablet to block ads because the creators of this app only block ip address names like google.ads or amazon.ads to not show ads. This does not work on all ads that are server side like youtube or plugins.

Do not use this at all, it will force you to enable VPN, not the good one either. This "ad blocker" does nothing to block ads.

Blokada blocks pretty much all ads and even has malware blocklists to block malicious domains. One of the most useful apps on android!

The newest release, version 4 has a very clunky UI. Frankly, it is messy and unintuitive. They have integrated VPN functionality using Wireguard, which is wonderful, but right now at least, you have to use their service and can't configure Blokada to use the provider you already have. I appreciate that this is a good approach to generating revenue, but not being able to use your own VPN of choice makes the application less useful by far.

Effectively, this prevents me from using Blokada, as I can't make use of my current VPN subscription and Blokada's ad blocking functions at the same time.

I'll update this review if the UI improves or the ability to use your own VPN setup is added.

As of the 14/07/19 the newest release isn't up on F-droid yet; you can find it here

Old review: Once the dev succeeds in integrating VPN functionality this will replace both Adaway and OpenVPN. The UI and blocklist selection are excellent.

    It’s paid now. Used to be great before. It still is if you use the apk from their site instead of using Google Play, but it’s only a matter of time until they discontinue them. Don’t waste your time with this. AdGuard or NextDns is better.
