Latest reviews

  • (2022-01-08) W. S. Ponzani: I highly recommend Block Sender. It works as advertised. It was always easy to use, but the recent website redesign has made it even more so. Block Sender provided me with ease of mind during a time I was being abused by email. When the abuser sent from a new email address, a few simple clicks in this extension added the block and any following messages were completely deleted. I appreciated Block Sender's ability to do that rather than Gmail's rules moving the messages to the deleted folder.
  • (2022-01-03) Timothy Haines: Works as advertised. Was a helpful addition as I had reached Gmails maximum capacity for blocking senders / adding custom filters.
  • (2021-12-15) Durk d'Essay: Two questions: - Why do I need an account at some dubious extension-creator, just to block local Gmail?? - This blocks mail everywhere but not where it should; in the spamfolder. WHY???? That folder needs blocking. If I want to block anywhere else, I just make a filter for it. Weird. So, in the end this is not here to help us gmail users, it's just a simple moneymachine for the people behind the extension. And yes, there's a free option but man, one day of blocking and one has used up the allowed amount and has to wait till next month. Totally worthless.
  • (2021-12-09) Miquel Banchs i Piqué: I tried to create blocks several times and I always got the message "0 blocks created". A complete loss of time for me.
  • (2021-12-07) Roberto Saverin: Block Sender was working until 2 days ago but now it stopped working. Customer Service says now they are having server problems !
  • (2021-11-30) Dariusz Bębenek: Mimo pisemnego zgłoszenia o usuniecie konta ,konto nie zostaje usunięte pełna ignorancja,chamstwo,brak odpowiedzi.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NIE POLECAM.
  • (2021-11-01) Angelo La Spina: App inutile, non funziona la versione free, disinstallata
  • (2021-10-25) Interpol Agent: I purchased this application with the HOPES that it would delete the THOUSANDS of harassing, targeted emails I get from someone I apparently made angry once and reported, however I've had nothing but issues since installing it. The first sets of issues came when I could neither access the web page to modify or create blocks, nor could I access the option to Bypass Trash and DELETE until it was fixed. I reported the issue NUMEROUS times and it was WEEKS before the "developers" were able to fix it. Now I create blocks, and have to go right back and modify the blocks AGAIN after creating them and specifying that the block Bypass Trash and DELETE, and apply my only account. It doesn't happen until I go back into the block and Edit it! Now I'm seeing blocks that I've put into place still allowing emails through!!! ABSOLUTE RUBBISH, and I'm PAYING for this service. I'll be filing an unfair business practices civil case for the months I've been using this ineffective service if the issues aren't fixed by week's end.
  • (2021-10-23) Lee Moreau: This is a scam and a piece of garbage. It says you have to pay in order to bounce back which is fine, so I sign up and pay. I then try to block someone emailing me and it fails every time saying "Auto-replies can't be sent to your own address." For real??? I emailed them with screenshots showing the person I'm trying to block is not myself, yet I've tried on 5 different people and it never works. If they don't refund me I'll be filing a chargeback with Visa.
  • (2021-08-19) Adewale Sanusi: Does not work!
  • (2021-07-29) Adrien Esquerre: Very good app, worked as expected. I avoided unwanted e-mails and generated very effective fake bounce back e-mails to get rid of unwanted senders. The company is honest, they refunded me for some services that I didn't need anymore.
  • (2021-04-28) Wolfgang Weber: Totaler Mist
  • (2021-04-22) jom jim: even the free version is limited. They never warn you about that. You have about 100 emails you can block
  • (2021-03-25) My Name is Apropos: Ok so I am rating the actual software from the SITE and not extension which I haven't tried. I signed up for an account and I was disappointed to see that you had to pay for Plus and Pro if you want to actually bounce an email. BUT! Unlike what other people are saying, it DOES WORK and it enables you to completely avoid receiving emails from unwanted senders. You will never see their email which is what matters most to me. People keep saying that it doesn't do anything different than google, but that's not true. When you "block" someone in google, you will see their email either in your spam or if you use the filters you will see it in your trash. With Google, there is no way to PERMANENTLY delete/auto delete emails "forever". But with Block Sender you can! And what a blessing this is! I am being harassed/stalked by someone and it's a shame that Google doesn't truly let you block vicious predators. I am so thankful for this app. It 100 percent works and btw I am using the free version. Also if you pay, there is a way to pay MONTHLY which you need to BE VERY CAREFUL to select or else you will get billed annually which really sucks! *** To Block Sender, I have to say, please don't try to be sneaky and bill people annually for a service like that. That's not cool. Be up front and have the site set to bill monthly by default and people will likely give much better reviews. All in all, I really love this service. I've tested it. It works. And if you're being harassed by a particular person like I was, this is a fantastic tool to have. Thank you thank you thank you!
  • (2021-01-17) Belteshazzar Cafe: You have to create an account just to use it. I already have dozens of account of everything. And this extension adds to my headache of dealing with multiple accounts for everything these days. Immediately, I uninstalled.
  • (2021-01-07) Stefanie Lisa: Doesn't work.
  • (2020-11-30) Daniel Lea: Utter $h!t. Doesn't work at all. Everything can be done from setting rules in Gmail
  • (2020-11-25) John Smith: Be wary of installing this extension. To use it you have to create a Block Sender account on their website that you can't change or delete without the developers permission! I've uninstalled the extension as it does nothing you couldn't already do with Gmail filters anyway but now I can't get my account deleted. After 4 days of talking with the developer he won't delete my account at all. Basically this crook now has access to my Gmail account and he's stopped responding to requests to delete the account. The user has no options to change their email address or delete the Block Sender account at all and the developer won't delete it either, and it's been deliberately designed that way to hoodwink people into giving up access to their private email accounts. You will only find this out after you've created the Block Sender account. Shady and crooked business practice. Hate it.
  • (2020-11-24) Ricky Norman Villanueva: it does the job. I'm loving it so far.
  • (2020-09-07) I bough PRO version and now I have a lot of emails coming as FAILURE SENDING. The filter from the extension dosnt work to send them to the trash, I've created one with Google, for me this extension is useless.
  • (2020-07-31) Mya Stark: In principle its good, and it works well, EXCEPT if you want to block a subdomain (i.e. when a commercial sender dodges spam filters by using "[email protected]" once you've blocked "[email protected] newsletter.com." It has the capacity to block those by putting an "*" before the domain but -- there is no way to do this easily from the gmail extension. You have to either go sign into the dashboard, or retype the domain name within the gmail extension. Also, their contact form is broken and they don't provide an email address, I had to google them and try a variety of "[email protected]" "[email protected]" etc. BTW the one that works is [email protected]
  • (2020-07-25) Laevatein: Doesn't block
  • (2020-07-04) Un -k: It doesn't work as advertised!!! Blocking IP's doesn't work!!! Blocking subjects doesn't work!!! Blocking names doesn't work!!! Blocking IP's with wildcards doesn't work!!! Blocking domain nor sub-domain nor domain extension doesn't work!!! When I emailed tech-support, never return or response promptly. In facts, all my request emails for tech support got ignored!!!
  • (2020-04-14) Diego Albanese: Richiede un po' troppe informazioni per i miei gusti, ma soprattutto è a pagamento (meglio rivolgersi ad altri che offrono gratis i loro servizi). Rimossa!
  • (2020-03-06) James Weightman: I have been trying for the last week or so to upgrade my account. I have emailed them several times without a reply. Can't get hold of them thru their support email address.
  • (2020-02-14) Carl Hart: Total garbage. First of all, why is it even necessary to have to install an extension to block a sender in gmail? I am amazed that this isn't already a basic function of gmail. And this piece of junk doesn't even work. I installed it, and when I tried to use it, it asks me for gmail password--even though I'm already logged in to my gmail account--and then tells me it is wrong. It is NOT wrong.
  • (2020-02-11) This is a joke, right? I have to pay to have the IP blocking feature enabled? Go jump off a bridge!
  • (2020-02-06) david Orr: Does not work! I have tried to get it to do the actual delete (not trash) of email and it does nothing. Gmail rules work, Block Sender does not!
  • (2020-02-02) Luc Terzetti Behrendt: Super extension
  • (2020-01-18) Daróczi Antal: only works sometimes
  • (2020-01-12) Richard Slashinski: STAY AWAY - SCAM ...Does not do what it claims , AlWAYS PROBLEMS ..WORSE SUPPORT TEC SUPPORT !! There contact us Link on there website doesn't work !!! Adding Blocks is confusing , But It make sure that your Credit Card is Charged .. Distubing my charges on credit card , I have sent numerous emails no answer back this weekend .. Unlinked account .. Removed this JUNK from my extenstions . Google you should be doing a better JOB in offering extensions like this !!!
  • (2019-12-06) Matt Horn: You have to turn over complete access to your entire Gmail account for something that doesn't do anything useful unless you pay a subscription fee. Block Sender does not do a good job in its marketing to make it clear the free version is completely handicapped. I completely regret authorizing this app to access my gmail. DO NOT INSTALL. DO NOT AUTHORIZE. DO NOT USE.
  • (2019-10-09) jacqueline bryan: I added this. Went to block an email. It asked me to sign in to block sender. I tried. It said my password was incorrect. Requested it be retrieved. Was told that my email address wasn't signed up to block sender. Catch 22 anyone! What a load of rubbish!!
  • (2019-10-06) Brett Hedtke: sounds like it sucks
  • (2019-09-05) CN MG: A waste of time, how can this extension get so many good reviews? It does nothing. Do programmers really understand what we want and what we need? I don't think so.
  • (2019-06-25) António Rebelo: É bom.
  • (2019-06-07) Josie Williams: Waste of money, the free version does nothing. Dont waste your time installing it. Its probably a scam
  • (2019-05-27) Igor Uchitel: STAY AWAY. A SHAMEFUL, SHAM EXTENSION. The free version is useless and doesn't allow you to do anything. They propose to upgrade - I did upgrade to Plus version, thinking I would pay $4-something/year, only to find out that the Plus version also doesn't allow to bounce spam emails, which is what I had been looking for. So I upgraded to Pro version, thinking I would pay $7-something/year, and then I found out it's $7-SOMETHING PER MONTH. Not only that, but they don't provide an option to cancel instantly and get your money back - I cancelled my account and got a message that it would remain active for a year. This is nothing short of outrageous, an absolute sham.
  • (2019-04-25) Paolo Rossi: buono
  • (2019-04-24) 牛島まや: 有料なのはちょっと…。 それと使い方がいまいちな点が☆三つ。
  • (2019-03-07) Bom
  • (2019-02-20) Антон: Useless!! Just another pathetic effort from desperate scam wannabees.
  • (2019-02-17) Exactly what the other user said "the billing wording is misleading and I've been charged $89 for what I thought would be around $7." This happened to me also and is not a fair way for sales. This application should undergo google review for taking away customers' money. I have disputed this fact to my bank and awaiting for my refund promptly.
  • (2019-02-07) Laurence Harrison: Brilliant. Have been plagued by emails from a stalker, sometimes 30 or more a day, every day for 4 years. Downloaded this and it has stopped completely. Can't thank you enough. excellent
  • (2019-01-08) Santana Mansfield: Can't send a bounce email without paying
  • (2018-12-17) Antonio Giacomo Feola: ottima
  • (2018-10-13) Tom Chantry: Pointless - the free version doesn't do anything you can't do in gmail anyway - ie no bounce backs unless you pay - should make that clear and then save me time bothering to install it.
  • (2018-09-26) Martinez josé: un peu cher
  • (2018-07-26) Phil J: Does not work. At least not as advertised.
