How frequently are the honesty and integrity of a man disposed of by a smile or a shrug. How many good and generous actions have been sunk into oblivion by a distrustful look, or stamped with the imputation of bad motives, by a mysterious and seasonable whisper!”

Blokada for Android – Powerful and Easy

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

A coworker showed me this app – which can’t be found in the app store – and since he consistently comes across and tries pretty neat stuff I thought I’d give it a try too, and I’m sure glad I did.

Blokada is an app available from blokada.org as well as F-Droid that doesn’t require root, yet is able to intercept advertisement and malware requests.  It does this by establishing a VPN connection to itself, then filtering requests based on DNS whitelists.  Open source software, it also makes use of open lists of known advertisers, Command/Control addresses and other hostile addresses and these lists are updated every couple hours.  This results in a hands-free, zero maintenance security app that is incredibly effective.

Credit where credit is due, this is a free app that will help out a lot of people.  Check it out at blokada.org .
