There are a few platforms and services where using CleanBrowsing can be problematic because of how DNS is supported. Below is a list of the platforms we know of:

Avast

Avast! Anti-Virus, which includes a “Real Site” protection offering which Hijacks your DNS.

Go to Settings and disable this component for CleanBrowsing to work. You won’t lose any protection as all our filters include the security-filter by default (that blocks phishing, malware, etc).


AT&T

Depending on the router AT&T provided, you might not be able to change DNS in their router.
