I am having an issue on both my Samsung Galaxy S7 edge (SM-G935F) and my Note 7 (SM-N930FD).

As soon as I run Block-This the first time on the device if the WiFi is off then it starts turning on and off all the time.

No matter if I stop the app or uninstall it.
It keeps doing that issue.

Please release a fix! 😯

Hey, sorry +Ankit Patel, +Ralph Davis. I just got up. I'm on a MM device at that moment and just saw that it's working again (along with my access to the sites). I initially assumed that my ISP was the culprit because even the block-this site and forums weren't accessible at the time

Are you switching from this community to the forum?
The forum will replace this community?
I do not like to create yet another account if there is already this community to interact with you.

+Bryan L Okay it seems like this site has implemented what people nowadays call "adblock blocker" on their website. Basically this is software that tries to load ads, and if unsuccessful replaces them with images that link to affiliate based websites. This means that there is no way for us to actually remove the ad, as it is just an image like any other image on the site. Adding this host to the blacklist will just make it so that when you click on the image, you will see a white page (which is even worse user experience in my opinion).  On the bright side, we at least remove the tracking cookies and javascripts that they try to set so they wouldn't be able to read much of your private information with just an image.

I am having issues with the Facebook app when using Block This.

Comments are very often not loading (please retry etc.) and the same happens with embedded videos.

Please fix. ☺️

I can confirm the play store issue on 7.0 on a nexus 9. Also can download photos from photos app from my account. Toggling block this on/off enables play store downloads.

Questions  - 
 
Any Block This users on Google Project FI?
Since a VPN is used to route everything to Project FI regardless of what network your using, would Block This conflict?
Normally I'd just try the app, but I use this phone too much to chance screwing up the VPN and/or network switching.
Thanks,
BG

(VPN is used for cellular, open wifi, all wifi... selectable)

I cannot find any link to donate via PayPal on the main site (block-this.com), on this community or on the new forum (forum.block-this.com).
I don't want to use the link provided from the Android App.
I can copy the PayPal URL from my Android device and paste it on my PC Browser, but way donating should be so difficult.
I suggest you to provide your site with a Donate via PayPal button.

Allow me to easily show my appreciation for your great app :)

Only worked for me (and very well too, I might add!) for a short time. Now it just kills internet entirely. Tried 2 ISPs as well as 3G. Also tried 2 devices. So seems like a VPN server issue, now lasting several days, can you confirm?

Edit: tried DNSet, didn't work either; yet two other commercial VPNs are working fine. Also, it's not blocking the whole internet, but all major websites are unobtainable.

Devices are not Samsung, and they are both running Android 4.4.2

Update: it's still not fixed, but luckily I found that my VPN provider's overseas servers actually block ads too, so all's good.

How can I add a host name to a blacklist locally? (I want to make it inconvenient to go to time wasting websites when I do not have root. )

I'd also like to know how to become a beta tester, as I'm hoping a beta version may restore the lost functionality. When clicking the Testing link, I just see "App not available for this account

If you've been invited to become a tester, make sure you're signed in to the account that was invited to the testing program. If you've been invited to a Google Group or Google+ Community as part of the program, make sure you've joined the Group or Community."
