We are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy and we make it our highest priority to safeguard
confidentiality of any and all personal details you provide to us. As a visitor to our website and a user of
our app, you have the
right to know and understand our information privacy practices prior to providing Future Mind with any

ADBLOCK FOR IOS - MOBILE APP
"AdBlock" mobile app operates on user data according to the following policies:
- AdBlock DOES NOT collect any personal user information (e-mail, name, address, etc.).
- The common use case of our app (whenever there is a VPN profiled installed) give it the possibility
to view DNS requests performed from your device.
In a typical, production scenario, no information about user online activity (DNS requests
specifically) is sent to us at any point.
There are a few exceptions to that rule. Specific policies on how the DNS request information is
handled by AdBlock:
- AdBlock DOES store detailed DNS request information locally on the device if:
- the "DNS Log" feature is enabled: the information is stored for 24h and
presented in the "DNS Log" view available in "Settings",
- a Test Flight debug type build (build number ending with .0) is used:
the information is stored in a log file and "printed" to the device debug console.
- AdBlock DOES send the DNS request information to us if:
- a TEST/DEBUG type (build number ending with .0) obtained through TestFlight is used
and the user chooses to submit a support ticket using the support mechanism
available in the app. In this scenario a detailed activity log is attached to the
used by our support team to diagnose user-reported issues.
- Our app does not collect or store any user input data entered on the device configured to
use our VPN configuration in any app, except the following data entered in the app: group names,
subgroup names, domain descriptions and domain address. This information, being the building block
of the DNS proxy feature, are stored locally on the device and optionally synced across devices
using iCloud (CloudKit) data storage. iCloud is a service owned and maintained by Apple Inc. By
default, Future Mind does not have access to the list of user input domain blocking lists stored on
the device. The only exception here is a case in which the user submits a support ticket using the
in-app support feature.
- AdBlock uses these third party frameworks and SDKs. The information collected using these tools is
subject to the privacy policies linked here:
for handling user support directly in the app.
Submitting a support ticket will require a valid e-mail address. This e-mail will be used by
us solely for the purpose of providing user-support.
there are some additional attributes collected from the device and sent to us with every
support ticket. These attributes include:
- A custom user identifier, which allows us to correlate crashes collected by Firebase
Crashlytics with support tickets filed via Instabug.
- DNS Proxy: information if the feature is enabled, a list of DNS
proxy rules, a count
of active DNS proxy rules, a last known URL from which the user imported the DNS
rules, a date of the last DNS proxy rules import,
- Content Blocker (SCB): information if the feature is enabled, a
list of URLs
from which the user umported the SCB rules, a date of the last SCB rules import,
- DNS Log: information if the feature is enabled,
- iCloud Sync: information if the feature is enabled,
- VPN extension activity log:
App Store (production) builds (build numbers ending with .0):
- information about VPN extension start and stop events
- information about DNS servers used by your device
- information about network interface configuration
- information about network change events (whenever you're switching between
Wi-Fi and cellular)
- information about the amount of data sent to/from the DNS servers
- information about DNS proxy rule matches (without disclosing the domain name
that triggered the match)
- other technical information
Test Flight (debug) builds (build numbers ending with .1):
- all information stored by App Store builds
- detailed log of DNS requests and responses containing domains and IPs
- additional and more detailed technical information useful for providing
early-beta support and debugging
- In addition, whenever you're using our list of DNS proxy rules, which is the default list used by
the app, the information sent from your device to our API discloses your Internet IP address and the
"User-agent" HTTP header field identifying verson of the app performing the request.
