    Although it may be easy to detect video ... it is hard to know the content of the video at the network layer.    We are working on a set of rules that will white list site, but ... to do that, you will have to know what URL google class room is accessing.    Do you have that data point?

    We have the same issue.  I have to unplug the firewalla unit for kids to use google classroom and I am so disappointed.  The website for it is https://classroom.google.com/.  Please help us use firewalla with google classroom.

    Hi

    Can you check what other blocks are active on the kids' device?  (video/gaming...)?

    I also have this issue. We cannot get to Google classroom unless I turn off safe search, family protect, and ad block.

    Https://classroom.google.com
    This also connects to drive.google.com if that helps.

    Very likely it is the safe search that's preventing this from running.   Try just turning it off (it may take up to 10 min to have the cache flush out)

    Safe search really is an internal search function, which firewalla can help you to turn it on.   We believe internally safe search uses content marketing by publishers ... so some may not mark their content as safe for kids
