With the new screen accountability, can I please request that you have a covenant eyes based blacklist and whitelist that you can add websites or domains too? Right now I am doing it through IOS system and find it frustrating.

I am also frustrated with this new filter! It is blocking sites that are not explicit.

Hey, gents. Thanks for posting here. 

We hear you loud and clear, and we're working on building the block/allow capabilities into Screen Accountability. In the meantime, you're welcomed to stick with Internet Accountability until we have all the features you need in Screen Accountability. We know that Screen Accountability doesn't yet contain all the features some folks want/need. That's why we've left the option to use either open for now. 

We really value this kind of critique, though, as it lights a good fire beneath us to get on developing custom Block/Allow lists quickly. 

Thank you for taking the time to let us know what you're looking for.

Yes please add back the ability to blacklist and whitelist sites. 

I love the idea of the screen accountability. I love that it's not just looking at words to see if it should be blocked but it's actually looking at images. Very good. 

I also really like the new filter, mostly because I love how the filter has the ability to force safesearch on YouTube. I've been needing that for a long time now.

Hello! We have some exciting news to share with you that may be relevant to your interests or concerns in this thread. A Custom Block List is officially coming to Screen Accountability very soon. Once implemented, this feature will be freely available to all Screen Accountability members who have filtering. If you have any additional questions, please see the attached article for more information. Thank you for your time and patience.

If a whitelist returns, it should be created with the restriction that the ally receives a notification/message that a page will be added, otherwise a new loophole will be created.
