Will an option similar to the Block/Allow list return? This option was one of the main reasons we chose to use CE as our family filter.

The Block/Allow list was a major reason I chose covenant eyes as my family's filtering program. This loss will most likely cause us to have to look elsewhere for a different filtering program. Is there any possibility a filtering option such as the Block/Allow list will return?

Thank you for using Covenant Eyes. We consider it a privilege to help others protect their families.

As you probably know, we are moving forward with the Screen AccountabilityTM concept. One way to focus on the development and implementation of that concept is to simplify the blocking feature. At this time blocking is powered by CleanBrowsing and does not include the Block/Allow list. You can read our full explanation at https://www.covenanteyes.com/support-articles/understanding-covenant-eyes-blocking/

Thank you for sharing your thoughts! I'll pass them along to the decision makers.

FWIW - I would agree with Robert that the lack of Block/Allow list is going to cause issues for myself as well. I use the filtering not just for adult content, but for general time wasting content as well. That wouldn't be supported in the new system.

I've never had good luck running 2 separate filtering softwares (ie - CE and Freedom or K9) and would appreciate the ability to do it all in one place.

In you go under settings in IOS you can specifically limit access to certain websites. I also had this concern. This should prevent you from accessing those sites.
