BlockBear! App Reviews

  • 4-stars!

    By TheNewGuyHere
    Quick, very simple ad blocker. Set it, forget it. Improvements needed: 1). can turn filter groups on or off, but no customizing or adding of filters. 2). Not sure how often filters are updated, if ever. Good if you like ultra simple, no-change filters. This is the most limited but adequate ad blocker I’ve found.
  • Useless

    By corbos
    I find that the app is useless for what I was looking for. I wanted an app that would stop ad webpage redirects. I still get redirects for winning various prizes.
  • Useful and Necessary

    I’ve noticed a difference in my web experience which is a good thing for me. I do wish the app was updated more frequently and would be willing to accept a paid high powered (VPN Free) version.
  • Effective and delightful

    By glitch p-udding
    This is the most efficient and effective blocker I’ve ever used. The interface is a delight, to the extend that i love showing it to other people.
  • Gets the job done.

    Works as advertised.
  • Great blocker in a sea of crap

    BlockBear has been my godsend. App discovery on iOS is a disaster so once I found BlockBear I was so relieved to stop searching. It is no frills, does what I want, and comes with more cute bears to invade my phone. I am not a TunnelBear customer (another product by this developer) but that may be my next purchase given the good experience I have had with this. Thanks my dudes
  • Do not download this!?!?

    By shot
    I have tried this it won’t connect to the internet so I have to uninstall it in order to get connect to the WiFi. This app might have a spyware on it so don’t get it!!
  • Need Update!

    By itsjonduh
    It has always worked well for me however after iOS 12 it is now blocking things that shouldn’t be blocked. For example on bestbuy website it blocks any searches or product lists.
  • I can’t use it :(

    By KingsMelon
    I really want to use this but if I leave it “On” I can’t go to any website. It won’t load & it just says “Contents blocked by a content blocker “BlockBear”. I’m like “yeah, good!” But the website won’t open. I tried many different websites & I can’t go anywhere. Please help!!
