Dear customers and prospective customers,
A lot has happened; we would like to inform you about our latest developments today.
Last week we have released a new, improved version of our eBlocker OS. One of its highlights is the new Parental Controls feature that we provide as a first beta version to all eBlocker Family users. With this new function, you can protect your children from inappropriate content and excessive internet consumption. Find a detailed instruction about how to use Parental Controls optimally, in our user manual
and in our forum
Another Highlight: From now on, the eBlocker allows you to easily connect your local network to a commercial or private VPN – completely without any software installation. All devices that are protected by eBlocker, can safely communicate via this VPN connection without any additional configuration. A VPN connection is set up with only a few clicks. Read about the setup in our user manual
and in our forum
Furthermore, the release contains more than 20 additional bug fixes to further improve performance and stability of your eBlocker. For example, the eBlocker Icon and the controlbar now also work with the Edge Browser in Windows 10 and an issue with the display of Tor availability has been fixed. All new features have been summarized in the release notes
. The new eBlocker OS version is automatically distributed to all eBlockers with an update license.
Overview for upcoming releases
Many extensions and optimizations that we will be releasing at the beginning of Q2 are being developed already. These include:
Individual exemptions and additions for Parental Control filters
Individual definition of the total access time per day
Notifications for parents if the eBlocker was offline or deactivated
Support for devices shared by different users with Parental Control profiles

Winner of the Preview-Award
At the Digital Business Preview in Munich, we were presented the preview award already for the second time. This award is handed out by over 100 journalists from different sectors for the best innovation. Our entire team is very proud that the eBlocker has once again convinced the expert jury from a wide range of products. Many thanks for this!
eBlocker in TV
We made it twice on television this week:
For the occasion of CeBIT 2017, the Bavarian Broadcasting Corporation presented two innovative technologies on January 30th, 2017, including the eBlocker. And on the subject of “Price differentiation on the Internet” (Dynamic Pricing), the ARD filmed in our office two weeks ago. We revealed the price differences on the Internet by showing an example on expedia.de. This broadcast was aired on January 27th, 2017 in the German show “Mittagsmagazin”.

We warmly welcome Ulf to our team! Since February 1st, 2017, he has been responsible for the smooth running of the office as an assistant to the management and supports the managers in their day-to-day work.
