Bloqer Internet Filter
Bloqer is an internet filtering platform that allows you to manage any number of computers from any internet connection.
Bloqer gives you freedom, and power.
1. Freedom of Place
Bloqer allows you to access your internet filtering from any place. You can access Bloqer from anywhere there is an interent connection. Bloqer does not require that you are within your company’s WAN/LAN, via a proxy, tunnel, or VPN (although you can certainly choose these options if you wish). Any internet connection with a browser will work to access Bloqer.
2. Freedom of Platform
Since Bloqer is managed via browser, any device will work. We have designed our screens to be usable with mobile devices, therefore you can access bloqer via Android, iOS, iPad, Windows Phone, Windows, or Mac.
3. Power to Check Internet Use From Any Browser
With Bloqer, by logging into any browser, you can check the internet use of any user or group within your organization. Bloqer provides reports in both data and graphical form that quickly allows you to see which sites and categories are being viewed and /or blocked. This allows you to see exactly which steps need to be taken to curb the unwanted web surfing.
4. Power to Instantly Deploy Internet Use Policy
Based on use reports, you can instantly implement internet use policy. For example, if you notice a user or group is spending too much time on a certain site, you can, from your browser, create a policy for that user or user group to block that particular site. Conversely, if your users inform you they require a certain site that is currently blocked, you can unblock that site.
Creating Web Blocking Schedules with Bloqer Cloud Internet Filter
Bloqer for Windows PC is a way to control Internet Filtering and View Internet Use Reports from anywhere there is an internet connection, including Mobile Devices.
This means you can view all of your employees web use, identify who is a problem web surfer, and block them …. all from your iPhone (or iPad, or Android Phone, or Android Tablet).
Think about if for a second. This is incredibly powerful. We don’t know of any other software that can do this.
And here is more. This is for Enterprises, for an unlimited number of computers. Bloqer will work find for households with 3-5 computers. But Bloqer was designed and built with the experience of years of consulting in Fortune 100 environments, where up to thousands of computers need to be controlled.
Where Bloqer works well in a corporate environment is where there are remote PC’s, remote offices, Laptop fleets, and other scattered environments in different WAN/LAN systems. Bloqer leverages the public internet, so we are not dependent on being in the WAN, like many other enterprise products. And we work locally, so we do not redirect your requests to our central server.
You can login and try Bloqer for Free, up to 5 Computers on a 30 day trial.

What is Bloqer for Windows PC?
Bloqer is an internet filter for Windows PC’s that can be managed from any internet connection, including smartphones and tablets.
You can manage settings, and you can view real time reports on blocking and web use.
We are creating a new release of Bloqer Internet Filter for GSM Smartphones.
We are basing our releases on feedback from users. There seems to be some confusion on what is being blocked. People have been expecting Bloqer to search content, and block the keywords from content. I realize our instructions state it blocks by keywords in the web title or URL, but we also realize that apps need to be more self explanatory, as we are all pressed for time. We do have a lot of instructional tutorials on this website, if you are interested, however.
So, for the new release we are including the following feature:
The areas that are blocked can be selected. For example, you can select to block web titles, web URLS, content, or all. That way, it is clearly demonstrated exactly how the blocking works.
We are intending Bloqer to be a platform for bigger things. So the more feedback we get, the more ideas we have so this application can better serve. So, please, if you have ideas, we would like to hear them.
We need to address the Android Market comments.
Bloqer is a free Android App. Please help us make it better! Let’s work constructively together. If you can supply us with what you want, we can add it if it’s technically possible. Or we can make that feature more clear, or easier to use. Instead of running to add “one star” or “negative comments”, please send us an email, and we will answer it. And you may even see your idea incorporated into the software.
Look, we know that a blocking application isn’t a “warm and fuzzy” like Angry Bird, or a fun game for entertainment that is easy to rate because it makes you happy. We also know that a blocking application may be technical, and not just plug and play. There is a little bit of configuration. We tried to avoid it, and we will work to eliminate the configuration, but for now, with the way Android is constructed, there is still a little bit to do.
For this, we have about 15 short videos. We will make more, with some better audio to explain things.
And, by all means, if Bloqer is already working well for you, please leave some good feedback! We like positive feedback!
Today we added a new update of Bloqer on the Android Market
Some of the improvements:
Improved User Interface
We do appreciate any comments, good or bad, as the comments help us adjust the product.
Bloqer is available everywhere but the USA on the Android Market. If you are in the USA, and you have a GSM phone (usually T-Mobile)
you can download Bloqer from this website.

P.S. as far as comments on the Android Market, we appreciate the comments, but there is no need to give Bloqer a 1 Star because it does not work on CDMA yet. We are aware of this and have marked the labeling accordingly. Since the majority of the global phones are GSM now, we do feel we serve the bigger slice of the pie. We are working to get Bloqer going on CDMA, but it has a different set of challenges. Just one of them is that Sprint obfuscates the settings, and doesn’t like letting you in. In fact Sprint, Verizon are the major CDMA players, and they are both in the USA. T-Mobile is the main provider of GSM in the States.
Bloqer Internet Filtering for Samsung Galaxy Android Tablet
Bloqer is ideal for filtering on your Samsung Galaxy Tablet. As long as your Android device is 2.2 or higher, and users GSM technology, Bloqer will block websites. We have been testing Bloqer on a T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Tab, with successful results. We are working off of feedback from Bloqer users, and adjusting the program accordingly.
In response to comments on the Android Market, we have changed the initial screen to clarify the need to create a UserId (email) and Password. We think the added labeling will make the process much more intuitive and easy to understand.
1. When you first install Bloqer, you need to create a UserID (which is your email address) and a Password. This will be used for subsequent logins.
2. The create password and userid screen will not appear after the first time, Bloqer will go directly to the login screen.
Thank you for your comments, and we hope this new screen makes it easier.
In response to comments received during our time up on the Android marketplace, we are creating some small changes to Bloqer.
Bloqer can be downloaded here at our website:
- Splash screen to explain user needs to create Email and Password upon initial install
- Customer awareness that Bloqer is a GSM Android filter, and CDMA is temporarily not supported.
- Availability only in GSM markets
We are grateful to customer feedback and will continue to respond to increase the usability of the product.

How to Block Porn on a GSM Phone with Android
This video tutorial gives an overview on how to add keywords to block pornography on Android GSM phones.
Just to clarify, Bloqer currently works on GSM phones. Android works to proxy APN settings, which are exposed on GSM type phones. At Bloqer, we are working to add support for CDMA type phones, which are the bulk of the market in the USA. Sprint and Verizon, for example are CDMA carriers. T-Mobile in the USA is a GSM phone carrier, and Bloqer will work on T-Mobile Android phones that are GSM.
We will post all new developments on getting Bloqer working on CDMA type phones.
GSM continues to be a standard used in the rest of the world outside the USA, for example, there are 556 Million GSM users in India.
