    At first, congrats Darren & your team for this good cybersecurity software..
    It works seamlessly with my Malwarebytes Premium..
    However, I have 2 requests :

    1) Will it be possible to access, in future update, to a list of details that have been blocked regarding advertising and profiling ?
    We only have access to the history chart and there is no information in event viewer..

    2) Have another white list of manual exclusions made via the event viewer in order to be able to purge from time to time.
    The install mode is a good thing to avoid this, but we only have access to the White Listed Sites for Advertising and Profiling

    Best regards.

    Yes the 'wilder' coupon is now available for this year. We just activated it. The Android version is complete, we are just working on a release date for this month.

    Hi Acid King (nice handle).

    1. In the next major Windows release (4.0) we are going to log the advertising and profiling information as well. In fact the Android version will do this in its initial release as well.

    2. Yes you are not the first person to ask this so we will allow you to edit these as well. We have some newer technologies going into 4.0 which will be a little more flexible in this regard so will have more options available for you to configure if you desire.

    I'm sure I could see that date my license expired on 3.6.1, but unless I'm blind, I cannot find that information now. I cannot find that information in the Enterprise Console either.

    You're right, mine was 23 Feb 2019 but now I don't see it (haven't looked in the Console).

    Edit: I had some problems with the update to v3.6.2, but this may have been due to NoVirusThanks EXE Radar Pro 'interference'.

    Correct, we changed that if you have an Enterprise license. It is less relevant in that mode since the organization usually takes care of that for you. It was creating too many questions for IT departments. We just change the license on the backend rather than having people reenter anything.

    @Darren Williams

    Hi

    I'm using an android phone and I'm not using any app from Google Play Store neither am I using Google services.

    However, when connecting to the net, I'm aware that Google is connecting out even if I'm doing nothing. This I can see in Blokada blocking Google analytics etc

    Can I know whether your android BFP can display and allow me to block Google outgoing connections?

    Thanks

    I'm glad to know about the next major Windows release (4.0) with log the advertising and profiling information && more friendly flexible edit for exclusions.

    In fact, I would have like to know which are the some lists of ublock origin that duplicate with BlackFog in order to find out if I can fire some of them.
    EasyList, EasyPrivacy
    Malvertising filter list by Disconnect,
    Peter Lowe's Ad and tracking server list

    Do you use these lists in BlackFog for example ?

    Thanks

    Krusty you have Enterprise for home use? Is that possible? Sorry I am new to the product. Cheers.

    Yes, but that is / was a special offer to Wilders members.

    Hi Krusty thanks. So I guess that there is no way to get that deal anymore?

    Guess I can ask Darren. Question: Do you run this program with all defaults, or any tweaks? I am a noob to the program so just feeling my way around it.

    Thanks man.

    Almost all defaults, but I do allow BF to clean all of Chrome on closing, and I have added North Korea as a geo-blocked region.

    Does anyone know if you enter the new key early, will it extend your current subscription, or do you lose any remaining days?

    Thanks.

    If you are using Enterprise, you do not need to apply a new key at all. It just keeps working as before. We update the expiry date on the server side.

    Thanks Darren. So do I just purchase through the consumer link on your site? I ask because you graciously allowed me to upgrade to the Enterprise Edition for free. Or this there another way to buy a new subscription?
