    Please note we have now released BlackFog Privacy 4.0. If you are beta tester you will need to uninstall the beta first, otherwise just run the update from the main menu. Thanks for everyone's input on this release. I hope enjoy the new interface and the work we have put into this version. You can view the full release notes here:

    That will mean you have a corrupt Policy. Please look at this Knowledge base article.

    https://www.blackfog.com/knowledge-base/error-applying-policy-starting-blackfog/

    Also note you are not allowing the app to contact the update server either. So you may want to allow BlackFog to use the network. Also we did not change the forensic cleaning timer. But we can add it to the feature requests list.

    Thank you for your time and fast reply

    I had no problem with version 3.7 before

    now with v 4.0
    Server Error: 500 Response: Server Error
    and not working

    blackfog have access to the network through glasswire
    i dont understand
    even when i click update it is checking update and says up to date
    But filtering and rules not working

    maybe a bug from 4.0 with Glasswire or HitmanPro.Alert or Heimdal Thor

    "btw"
    I prefer GUI dashboard from last version
    Now on dashboard we only see some counters that cannot be clicked..

    We test with all of those too so not sure what is blocking your network connection there. We communicate over SSL 443 to our servers. Other than that thanks for your feedback.

    I had to relax Windows Defender in ConfigureDefender somewhat before BlackFog 4.0 would install. The ironic thing was that I then had to disable PowerShell in BF before I could restore ConfigureDefender's settings.

    Otherwise, all good! I like the new GUI too. :thumb:

    Thanks for the info Krusty. UI is one of those things where you just can't please everyone, but glad you like it. Testing revealed more than 90% liked it more than v3.0 and it gives us lots of scope to grow in the future.

    They won't know about us yet. This is the whole issue with fingerprinting technology in general. You will just have to whitelist it in that app. It will take some time for them to catch up to our new release.

    Darren, the weird thing is that I have HitmanPro scheduled to scan each machine at 12 PM but this detection was only on the machine running Windows Defender. Anyway, while I can't explain why I didn't get the same detection on my other machines I am sure it is a false positive.

    Cheers.

    Uninstalled beta. Installed new download from BF website.

    No apparent problems, but About version still says 4.0.0 (b270)? Should I have rebooted after uninstall? Or am I OK?

    @acid king btw I also have GW, Heimdal Thor Home and HmP.A (BF excluded in Exploit Mitigation) on this (test) machine.

    Correct, that means build 270 which is the release copy. So you are good to go.

    I started running the V4 Trial. I really like the AdGuard Android App but had to turn it off so i can trial this app which also has a VPN. How much is the paid android app.

    We have a fix for that BSOD coming out tomorrow. The problem arises when running Windows 10 with Virtualization protection enabled. We are tagging it as 4.0.1 which has a driver change only. We will post as soon as its verified amongst those affected.

    Any news on iOS version updates?

    Last update was on August 2018, so is it abandoned or still in development?

    By the way that site mentioned by Dragon is considered a fake news site. You can whitelist it if you really want to go there though or just switch off the fake news blocking.

    It's very entertaining as comedy though... 'Psychic' Turtle for Sale in Russia...

    I clicked a link that took me to a russian site which was blocked by BF. I clicked on the link again and was not blocked but connected to the RU site.

    I have fake news checked and
    I have fake news checked and can get to this site now without getting blocked. After i cleaned the cache with ccleaner i tried again and was blocked from getting to fake news.

    Remember that if you keep checking and unchecking the options the network caching will play a role in all this. So for example, you have it blocked, then you uncheck and let it through, then you block again and it will come through, because you have it cached in the network stack. There are many layers here we are dealing with and then when you consider proxies etc it gets even more complex. The trick not to keep checking and unchecking the options.
