Our story

Blokada was first released in November 2016, by the developer Karol Gusak. The goal was to keep devices ad-free and avoid unwanted content that uses unnecessary mobile data. The first features and bug fixes were shipped quickly, the application's topic on the famous XDA forum had hourly updates. To be more available for the users and assist them more easily, the project opened its gate on Telegram. The first two members were Karol and one of the forum's member, Péter Róth. Later he started to refurbish the ad-blocker's Facebook page and website, besides helped with the rapidly growing chat room.

To build a group that helps to translate the app, create content, test and debug beta versions and administrate the social pages, Blokada Insiders was founded in 2018 and it works actively to make Blokada as good as it now. Did you know today Blokada is available on 25 languages?
Sebastian Januszevski joined the administration of the Telegram channel, assisting members and actively contributing towards testing the application, reproducing user reports. Based on his feedbacks and knowledge, Blokada got more stable and reliable.

Karol was born in Poland. After spending several years in Sweden, he is now back to Warsaw, where he's participating in various mobile projects as a developer. You aren't surprised, are you?
Péter comes from Hungary, located next to the country's capital, Budapest, where he works as engineer in the IT sector, knowing the deeps of Big Data technologies, assisting worldwide known companies to achieve their goal.
Sebastian lives and works in Buenos Aires where he teaches statistics and data processing in a university. He's a hobby developer in PHP and JavaScript, and a few WordPress plugin was released under his name.

Since the beginning, Blokada was downloaded and installed on more than 200.000 devices, from phones to tablets to smart TVs.

What is our vision? The team will work to support a wider range of devices, make it possible to connect to a real VPN service while Blokada is running and to protect your privacy more, serve you more information about the ads you are protected from.
