I always assumed it was a vpn but it was using a workaround so you didn't need the lock screen with a pin or password etc.

Don't you need a running VPN service to connect to to achieve it?

It is a VPN client that connects to a local VPN server running on your own device. This would require blokada to manage two VPNs and in a specific order so your IP is not exposed. This adds lots of complexity.

Technically not. Technically you need a device/service to connect to, as your ISP won't give you another IP, that means your router/switch's IP will be used, just like now.

No need for another IP, we are talking about blokada first connecting to a 3rd party commercial VPN provider first, then connecting to the blokada local VPN. The order of those connections probably doesn't matter. It might be easier to fork this project and split the functions of this app, instead of running a VPN server on the phone, run one with the same config on a VPS and use the Blokada app to manage that connection.

That's the goal, as otherwise the real VPN is meaningless.

Couldn't you achieve the IP hiding with a custom dns?

I also want to hide IP btw! This is high on my list.

@nezzox DNS and VPN are for different purposes. The DNS just resolves the hostname to IP address, the VPN creates an encrypted tunnel.

This is a wonderful idea,though eventually I’d like to add a ovpn profile file,as I usually can find high quality ones with database apps

Is someone working on this? I want to use a VPN but am also worried about 2000+ hosts that Blokada has blocked in 2 days. This would be a good feature!

It's the current donation campaign goal. A few other features will come before it though which are already scheduled, like block history / log. So it'll be a while before this one comes in.
