Description

Lockdown blocks trackers and badware in all your apps, blocking an estimated 100 million trackers per month for over 300,000 people.

— Comprehensive Protection —
Lockdown has two privacy features: Firewall and Secure Tunnel VPN. Each feature protects you from different threats, creating the complete solution for protecting your personal data, browsing history, and sensitive connections.

FIREWALL — Blocks Hidden Trackers: The world's first on-device, open source blocker that stops ads, trackers, and badware in all your apps.

SECURE TUNNEL VPN — Keep Your Data and Browsing Private: It's the no-logs, blazing-fast, privacy-first VPN. The only VPN to prove its Privacy Policy and be fully audited.

— BASIC FIREWALL FEATURES —
- Simple, one-tap to get protected against thousands of trackers for most users
- Fully customizable blocking for advanced users: block any domain / service
- Works for all apps, not just the browser
- Useful preconfigured block lists that are updated every week
- Blocking works "on-device" meaning it does all of its blocking without sending all your data to a third party server, unlike other blocking apps


—ADVANCED FIREWALL FEATURES—
- Import and create your own custom lists
- Export your custom lists to share with others and save offline
- Block thousands more trackers
- Access to advanced curated lists and app specific block lists (e.g. TikTok, iFunny, Junes Journey)

— SECURE TUNNEL VPN FEATURES —
- Hide your location and unique IP address with one tap
- Keeps you safe on public wi-fi hotspots and sites
- Stops spying from snoopers and your ISP or cellular provider
- Ultrafast with over a dozen regions globally

— TRANSPARENCY YOU CAN TRUST —
- Other privacy apps lie on their Privacy Policy and secretly sell user data, even if they promise not to
- To solve this issue, the Openly Operated certification requires apps to *prove* their Privacy Policy
- Lockdown is Openly Operated certified with a public 38-page audit report, and audited multiple times by security professionals

— UNPARALLELED PRIVACY —
- Open Source: Since firewalls have access to *everything* you do, it's critical that any firewall you use should be open source. Lockdown is 100% open source.
- On-Device: Lockdown Firewall doesn’t connect to any servers. No logs of your browsing are sent to third parties or to our servers when using Lockdown Firewall.

Stopped Working In Background..(UPDATE)

UPDATE: I figured out with some trial & error that this app will continue to block trackers in the background but only if you have the VPN “secure tunnel” activated in the app with “background app refresh” turned on. The “Firewall” must also be turned on. If you only have the “firewall” activated but not the VPN “secure tunnel”, it does not seem to block trackers like Facebook that collect data on you while you sleep. I’m adding one star. It would be great if they made the firewall work by itself in the background because I’d rather not use a VPN at home, but I can live with it for now. Overall, I really like this app & company and recommend this product.

1st review:
I’ve been using Lockdown for about six months now. At first, I thought it was amazing. It would block many add trackers like Facebook and Google, even while I slept at night. However, I noticed recently that those trackers stopped showing up in my “tracking log” each morning. “App Background Refresh” is turned on, but it makes no difference. Nothing seems to be getting blocked unless I am actively using my phone. This is a big concern, and I hope they can figure out what’s going on or I will need to start looking at other options.

Developer Response ,

Hi Mattie Pie, thanks for your reviews and comments. Sorry about the issue you're seeing - the app should definitely continue blocking trackers in both conditions that you described. We can't seem to reproduce the bug that you're describing, can you please reach out to team@lockdownhq.com so we can help you out?

My Stockholm syndrome with Lockdown is finally over.

Update - Worst privacy and security app in the whole store solely because of its poor performance. I would give zero stars if it was possible. Constantly dropping connection (10-20x/hour), crazy battery drain, nothing works correctly. I have actually given up on the app at the cost of my own privacy and security because it’s completely unusable. I moved over to a VPN without granular domain blocking because I had no choice. I am a CISO and I once extolled the virtues of the app and recommended it to everyone I knew… now I am quick to condemn the developers and the app.

I have had this app for quite some time now. Vpn speed and connection quality has been steadily dropping over the last 6 months. It’s almost unusable. The new app update hangs on the main screen and you are unable to turn the VPN off when it’s frozen and not connecting. Essentially turning your beautiful expensive device… into a paperweight until you restart it. As soon as a trusted competitor vpn allows custom black lists like the firewall…. I will be switching as soon as possible. I think others will do the same. This app has really taken a turn for the worse. Also reinstalling, clearing network settings, setting up the vpn profiles again (all the typical “support” responses) does not fix the issue. Customer service is awful to add insult to injury.

Developer Response ,

Hi Gh0121, we are continually working to improve the application. We would love to work through the issues you are experiencing with Lockdown Privacy. If you email us through the app, you will be able to share error reports with us so that we can more accurately assess what is not working for you. Nonetheless, we have released a new update with verses 1.5.1 that hopefully clears up the issues you are experiencing. Please let us know by emailing us at team@lockdownhq.com. Thanks!

VPN doesn’t work and zero customer service

This is another company that is more than happy to take your money and not provide you with any customer service when the product you are paying them for doesn’t work. Their VPN disconnects itself while you’re trying to actively use it more than it does it’s intended job. And their “customer service” is nonexistent. They don’t care that they took my money yet I’m not getting the benefit of their service…5 minutes of vpn usage doesn’t count to justify a monthly payment. Their pathetically lacking FAQS section and such on their website is a much too small bandaid for the size of wound this company is hemorrhaging from. All software is up to date, internet connection is more than adequate and of course cellular data is turned on, background app refresh is on, low battery mode is always off, there are zero other security products being used, and connect on demand has been tried for long periods of time both on and off…your product still turns itself off and consistently won’t stay on. Yet, after I sent an email almost two week ago and have paid for an entire month of service, I still haven’t received a response from lockdown. If you’re as tired of companies thinking they can screw you over just because you’re a person and not a corporation, then do not use this company.
