Needs a whitelisting option-otherwise perfect


Application works great, even works alongside another virtual private network (Personal VPN)FYI this is not a real VPN, does not mask who you are and only uses that profile in order to block tracking cookies but as I said I can be used along side any VPN'S that are listed under "Personal VPN" in settings-> VPN (bottom). Nothing rose like this on the app store. Been using it for over a year and its blocked 70,000 trackers and saved 6.3gb of data on my phone alone. Keeps getting better.

Used to be a 5 star app


I loved this app, but one their updates in the last year removed the ability to block Google Analytics, the largest tracker on the internet.

I wish the developers had the courage to tell us that they nerfed their once great app. I guess Google must've paid them to stop blocking their tracker.

While this app is still useful in some respects, I'm not sure if it's worth downloading anymore, now that the app allows you to be tracked by Google.

Developer Response

Thanks for taking the time to submit feedback, which we take very seriously. We never whitelist in exchange for payment. We make our decisions based on a publicly stated policy that you can find here. We block many Google tracking domains in this app, however blocking GA in this app by default with no ability to whitelist caused too much breakage. Also, our Tools kit allows you to block whatever you want.



Love that so many ads get blocked within apps. It's amazing how many trackers this app blocks and how much data/time it reportedly saves. Only improvement I could wish for is to customize it to permission an individual app. For example it prevents the full functionality of my MercedesMe app.
