Sorry about that, seems to be getting blocked by the security filter. Let me see what the engineers say.
ThanksMay 17, 2020 at 4:27 pm
Seems to be a security block: https://dnsblacklist.org/?domain=eater.com
Getting it to the engineering team to verify.
ThanksMay 17, 2020 at 4:25 pm
They were flagged for security issues. You can see it here: https://dnsblacklist.org/?domain=filetransfer.io
I’ll get this over to the engineering team to see what might be going on.

Got it. ThanksMay 14, 2020 at 3:55 pm
What mobile device are you using? Android? iOS? I was able to test Spotify on a Mac using the Family filter and had no issues. Curious if its device specific.
Also, the error you’re getting “no internet connection available” is that only in the Spotify application? Or is that happening when you make the DNS change?
Lastly, if it’s not happening when you make the DNS change, and the internet is working outside the app, can you go to this page and share the results of the “standard test”: dnsleaktest.com

That’s odd, we don’t block Spotify. That’s a video streaming service, and not blocked via the Free filters. Do you mind sharing a bit more information?
Do you mind running these commands and sharing their output:
nslookup -type=txt whoami.lua.powerdns.org
nslookup http://www.google.com 18.104.22.168
nslookup -type=txt -class=chaos version.bind 22.214.171.124
nslookup -q=TXT mylocation.whois.dnscontest.cleanbrowsing.org
nslookup -q=TXT mylocation.whois.dnscontest.cleanbrowsing.org 126.96.36.199
and running these as well:
nslookup spotilocal.comMay 13, 2020 at 9:21 pm
Got it, it’ll be blocked in 24/48 hours.
ThanksMay 12, 2020 at 8:04 pm
We don’t block sports illustrated, swimwear, or lingerie sites via the Free filters. You can block them via the paid plans if you like.

Those blocks are from ESET. They have flagged the domain as malicious. Not from us, the DNS provider. The image says: THREAT FOUND, with a header from ESET.

As Daniel mentioned, right now we’re limited in what we can do with the filters. Our only option is to make it available, Google dictates what they block.
Unfortunately, the family filter doesn’t allow you to tune the network to your liking. But, it is possible via our paid plans. Via the paid plans you can configure the network to be identical to the Family filter, but also remove the YouTube limitations so that you can view what you need to view.
Thanks in advance.April 16, 2020 at 7:42 pm
I’m not familiar with the Sprint hotspot device, but I know they can be problematic. Have you considered rebooting the device? Sometimes with routers you have to reboot for the setting to stick, wonder if that’s the same here.
Thanks muchApril 16, 2020 at 7:40 pm
It shouldn’t, in most instances it should improve performance through our anycast network.
ThanksApril 16, 2020 at 7:40 pm
I’ve been testing, and haven’t been able to pull up the images. Can you provide an example domain that is pulling images? I’ll remove it once I confirm.
ThanksApril 16, 2020 at 7:36 pm
Great idea, thanks so much for the recommendation we’ll discuss internally.
ThanksApril 16, 2020 at 5:41 pm
First you want to stop the service. You can do it by clicking the CleanBrowsing icon in the app. I presume you’re working with the app from the app store?
It’s probably still blocking because of the tunnel. Once you “deactivate” the app by clicking the icon you should be able to remove the app like normal and it should stop blocking.
