Referer Manager is very likely to contain malware and should not be trusted. Avoid installing.
Overall good app but there are times where when you set a site to "Allow" in the filter and it still does not work. For example on Instagram.com I cannot get some images to load and I set it to "Allow" and still the site does not work unless I turn the entire addon off. I tried contacting the developer using the email here but it says The email account that you tried to reach does not exist.
