fr.m.wikipedia.org is blocked
strangely m.wikipedia.org is working and en.m.wikipedia.org as well
can you please unblock it as it is used by default by iOS in France ?

Blocking Wikipedia, isn’t that overblocking?March 28, 2020 at 8:41 pm
I don’t think Wikipedia should be blocked. I actually want fr.m.wikipedia.org to be unblocked.
blocking Wikipedia would definitely be over locking and I suspect many people would be inconvenienced.
i know I would consider using another another service if Wikipedia was to be blocked.

I came to post about the same issue as I have noticed recently that I could not access French Wikipedia on my mobile.Articles that deal with sexual matters may contain explicit pictures (that are usually drawings and rarely photos) but that is a really tiny fraction of the website.
Unlike Reddit, nobody uses Wikipedia to search for porn content, so it cannot even be considered as a mixed-content website.
Plus why would the French mobile version be blocked and not the desktop version, nor all the other versions in other languages ?
Being too restrictive can defeat the whole purpose of CleanBrowsing, just like I wanted to use the Family FIlter but it would not let me watch historical documentaries on Youtube so I fell back to Adult Filter with a less safe environnment.March 29, 2020 at 11:13 am
Totally agree with you, I would also switch to another service if Wikipedia is blocked …
Of course there are pages that are not suitable for children. But I think Wikipedia’s content is more focused on informing about these topics than presenting it in an attention grabbing manner (that may disturb younger audiences).March 29, 2020 at 12:21 pm
I wholeheartedly agree with the above comments. Wikipedia is an educational tool regarding all matters, including sexuality.
Additionally : over blocking everything touching the subject of sexuality would defeat the purpose of creating a family safe environment as it would reinforce the drive of our children to find workarounds should they want to.
To be complete on the issue :
Only the mobile french version is blocked. The desktop french version is not.March 29, 2020 at 10:54 pm
Sorry about that. Getting it fixed on our update later today. The FR version got classified as adult incorrectly.March 30, 2020 at 6:22 am
Thank you very much Daniel !
