Halifax Banking App

Without any recent changes to my nextdns setup, the Halifax Banking app now does not log in whilst using NextDNS. If I disable private DNS on android and use mobile data - it loads ok. (I also have nextdns on my router so that is why I used mobile data). 

How do you allow an app through NextDNS - if it is some security update the halifax have introduced, it may be others start to follow and that means more banking apps won't load.

 

Thanks

    I think I found the issue. NEXTDNS Ads and Trackers blocklist, Aguard Tracking and Easy Privacy. 

    I've now added these to the allow list:

    check2.lloydsbank.co.uk
    check2.halifax-online.co.uk

     

    Will see what happens when dns updates.

       I've added all your links to allow list don't seem to work for me

      After putting those links in the unblocking list copy the following link in your android browser

      chrome://net-internet-internalschrome://net-internals/#dns

      Click on dns then the button host cache 

      This will clear dns cache and once you open the Halifax banking app will work

    Uptates to the blocklist are occurring continuously. 

    NextDns doesn’t know about apps.   It blocks hosts and domains.   You will need to look at your logs to figure out what host or domain was blocked causing your app to stop working properly and add those to your Allow list.

       Thanks. I managed to do that - unfortunately, the devs/admins on this site seem to be asleep at this time of day, as my updated replies are pending review - which is very frustrating and my replies earlier could keep people. Hopefully, when the admins wake up they will enable admins that are awake in the UK during the day to approve posts. Thanks for your help though Calvin. :)
