Hey CE Team,

So CE on my Android has been pretty effective for me except for a few exceptions, the most notable is that by going to a proxy browser without downloading a special app, I can access blocked sites. I'm talking about the most common ones too, such as hidemyass and croxyproxy. Is there any way for CE to block proxy websites?

I'm glad it's been effective! For blocking certain sites, I have an option for you - the Custom Block List (CBL). It's a tool for customizing the Filter service. Check out this article for full details and some screen shots

For some people, just being able to put stuff on the list is all that they need. For other people, it's better to fully relinquish access to the Filter settings and ask a friend to be the Filter Guardian (it can be the same person who gets the report). In either case, it sounds like you are being proactive about things and I'm sure you'll know which option is best for you. Keep up the good work!

If my answer isn't clear, or you'd just like to talk these things through with someone, then please feel reach out to our Customer Service Team via live chat (click the chat bubble on your My Account page) or phone (877.479.1119).
