About this app

Weblock enables you to filter different types of online content while you’re using Wi-Fi. You can create filters to block specific sites and services, like facebook or twitter (including their widgets and plugins), and define your own content restrictions and redirects.

Every time you visit a website or launch an app, your device connects to multiple locations over the Internet to download online content. That includes configuration, media, text, scripts, advertising, etc. In most cases and by default all these connections are made directly with different servers. All modern operating systems (including Android 6.0 and newer) allow you to configure a PAC script. It defines which proxy servers you use to connect with different parts of the Internet. The PAC file (Proxy Auto Configuration) tells your device how to connect to different locations on the Internet based on the URL or IP address of the destination server. Weblock creates, manages and hosts locally your personalised PAC file. Every time you connect with some network location, it's address is compared with your PAC file rules. If the location is listed as blocked - your connection will be automatically routed through a dummy/black-hole proxy server (non-existent proxy which kills the connection, by default Weblock uses "localhost:35008” as the black-hole proxy). This makes the connection impossible and the undesired content inaccessible. Configuring PAC gives you the possibility to block only unwanted parts of websites/apps while allowing everything else. Weblock allows you to route requests for the undesired content through the dummy proxy, while keeping the connection with everything else direct and secure.

To fully use Weblock, take a look into the Filters section. Add your own rules and define Blacklists, Whitelists and Redirects. All locations and resources matching Blacklist rules will be inaccessible from your device. All resources matching Whitelist rules will always be accessible (regardless of the Blacklist rules). You can also define Redirects and access domains and URLs using proxy servers you choose. To activate Weblock you'll need to configure the connection with your Wi-Fi network properly (no need to change your router settings, everything is done right on your Android device). Follow a simple 5-step tutorial to change your connection settings and enjoy the Internet fine-tuned to your preference!

Get rid of content which annoys you the most today!

Please note: Weblock is a tool you can use to fine-tune your online experience by allowing/blocking/redirecting selected content. Due to Google Play policies, we do not include any predefined rules in the app. It's entirely up to you to define filters in our app. You can look online for ready to use lists maintained by third parties. You can also contact our support for advice on how to configure Weblock to suit your needs.

Worked well on iOS. Totally worthless on Android. Want a refund! Edit: I added the EasyList files when I originally bought the app and it still didn't work. The app will either not correctly access the hosts list or block all WiFi traffic. Also, the app ONLY works when using WiFi, total garbage if you have to use data. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY. If it doesn't function reliably on Android, the developer should pull it from the store until they can resolve the issues.

you need to import your own list to Weblock on Android. You can use HOSTS or EasyList file format. You can find import feature on Settings screen in Weblock app.

Coming from the great iOS version of this app, i expected the android version to have the same features. This was not the case. The android app only has a proxy mode, meaning that it only works in wifi. It does not have togglable categories of adblock presets, and the one giant preset that is in the app only uses domain blocks and not URL blocks, which causes problems on a lot of sites. YouTube does not work at all with the default preset, and disabling it every time to watch YouTube is meh.

Hi Temm, you can find domain, URL and Network rule types by tapping "+" icon in Filters. Youtube works fine with default preset. You might have imported some rule that is causing Youtube not to work properly.

I have no Internet at all when I use this according to what I can understand of the the instructions. I'm sure it's a great app if it works, but it doesn't work for me. Probably user error. Idk. Update: downgrading to 1 star because every time I restart my phone (Samsung Galaxy S8+), I get a message saying the app has stopped. I'm not even using it, so Idk why it was running (or trying to run). Deleting.
