Be able to send the filter guardian a request to add a blocked page to the allow list as you come across said blocked page

I have my settings set to very strict. And I need it that way. But with this strictness I often come across websites that I know for a fact are harmless but are blocked. The most recent example is a restaurant's web page. I don't live with my filter guardian so I have to write down the webpage address and remember to tell me filter guardian later. I suppose I could send them a text but that seems like that could get annoying.


An old filter company I used to use had a feature that solved this issue. Upon coming across a blocked page one is redirected to the page saying it is blocked. Well this other company had a link on the redirected page that said "Request this page be added to the allowed list" or something of that sort. If I clicked that link it would send an email to my Filter Guardian who could then simply accept or deny the request. If accepted, the page i tried to access would be permanently added to my allow list. Saved a lot of hassle.

But with covenant eyes I  have to keep a running tab of sites to ask my filter guardian to add to the allow list.

Southpaw102,
       For starters, may I just compliment you on your username. The Rocky movies are classics! More importantly, thank you for expressing your desire for Covenant Eyes to add this feature for filter users. Your suggestion would make it easier for Filter Guardians to override blocked pages. I will pass this request on to the correct department for review.

Best Regards,

Syd

This is needed.  Other services have it and it is invaluable!
