Question
Asked a question 2 months ago

another question so ive been trying to add google to my block list although, that comes with many issues for me. for instance accessing my primary gmail & gooGle drive/docs is all inaccessible once googles blocked. so firstly any advices if i could still anyhow access my gmail & these other services ? if not, please list some alternative ways i may want to pursue. like i maybe able to open a new email although, im not sure how id notify my hundreds of contacts on gmail of this. i thought maybe i could transfer my google docs/files to dropbox although id like to make this a last resort for dropbox has been very difficult for me to understand. all advices are appreciated.

Where am I?

Hi Dan. Thanks for your question. While some folks do indeed find it necessary we don't usually recommend blocking Google as you will run into the issues that you are describing. Blocking Google also blocks Google Services like Gmail, Google Docs/Drive, and other similar services. Now, this isn't to say that you cannot block Google or are not allowed to do so. You certainly can. Just be aware that you will run into these issues. You could always have your Filter Guardian add specific domains for Gmail, Google Docs, Google Drive, and other similar Google services to your allow list to see if that allows access to those specific sites. Just be aware that with Google on your block list it still may not work.
