UCBrowser to be blocked in Mobilephone

Dear All,

I have a customer situation.

While browsing with UCBrowser in Mobilephone - Unable to block unwanted sites.

There is Appl/URL rule to block few unwanted sites and also UCBrowser app as well.

But we can see the site is getting accessed with UCB (In chrome - it is fine blocking unwanted sites)

Per Tracker it shows blocked, but able to access those sites.

I replicated the above setup in my lab with Android app in VMWare.

No luck - unable to block UCB or sites in UCB

Any idea?

Regards, Prabulingam.N

UC Browser - Wikipedia 

Features[edit]

The browser uses cloud acceleration and data compression technology. UC Browser's servers act as a proxy which compresses and renders the data of web pages before sending it to users. This process helps to load web content faster. The browser can adapt to some network environments and support multi-file format downloading. In addition, UC Browser has HTML5 web app and cloud syncing features.It has the feature of "fast download" which increases the downloading speed using multiple thread connection download technique.

Since it has built in proxy I guess the browser does not access the relevant URLs with direct request...
Maybe you should block the proxy IPs
