Alternative App Market loopholes

I'm a BETA tester for the Android filter. I know CE has an unprotected browser block which blocks unsupported browsers and redirects you to the browser apps that CE monitors/ and or filters.

My suggestion is that CE create a block for alternative app markets (besides Google Play) for the android CE filter. Also create a corresponding block for alternative app markets (besides App Store) for the IOS CE filter. Often there are unrated apps on alternative app markets that are loopholes to the filter.

I can download apps from alternative markets and they will show up on the accountability reports but the content isnt filtered because they have no ratings on those third party app markets.

Let me know if this is feasible from CE's standpoint given that the internet is a dynamic entity.

Hi Joseph,
    Thanks for the post! Because your question focuses on what is possible rather than what the Covenant Eyes application is currently able to do, I have forwarded it on to those who work on the Android application. It's not an answer to your question, but I wanted you to know that your question has been seen and we are taking steps to find an answer.
