We have been using Blocky for quite some time now, we use Blocky every day and is essential for our website’s protection. We experience daily attacks from bots/crawlers and competitors – Blocky stops this. Since we installed the app two great features have been added, which are Visitor analytics and a whitelist for the IP blocker. Very easy to use and set up.

I was using ClickCease before and hated it. Love this app, simple, straight forward, does what needs to be done. No code to change, nothing to upload, just register and watch the results. FYI, tested ClickCease and many others with VPN and they never blocked me, Blocky got me every time, it did let me get to my homepage but never let me get further. For the price, I can certainly live with that. Keep up the great work!

UPDATE: After I posted this, within 24 hours I started having trouble with editing my site in the customize section of my theme. I noticed injected JS from this company and recorded video that showed when turned off everything worked again. I will be sending this info to shopify regarding this highly illegal manipulation to negative reviews. I wanted to try this app and waiting for a reply back from the developer. At present it does NOT work. I've blocked IP addresses, including my own, blocked countries, and other users I know to help test. Using VPN, my local IP, and the others, we ALL were able to continue accessing the site despite it stating they were blocked etc. I have screenshots and video to show this is not working. Beware...

Hi,
Thank you for your review. I have tried to contact you several times via email but never heard back. Before you edited your review, I addresses to your initial concern and message you that I believe that you were not blocked because you were logged in as the store's admin. Blocky will never block you when you are logged in as the store's admin.

About your updated review - Effective Apps is a company that is building effective and quality software in hope for a better web. Our main goal is to help our customers succeed, and we appreciate ANY feedback - good or bad. We would never - never - do any action that may hurt our customers. Blocky's source code is visible when you visit your lovely store, so you can inspect it yourself or with the help of a professional and see for yourself.

I have tried to reach out to you via email and provided you with my personal phone number in order for us to be able to talk and for me to be able to hear and address any concerns you may have. I am waiting for your reply and I will greatly appreciate it! :)

Thank you and have a great rest of the day!
