  2. Update the filter - especially the gaming category

    We have far to many gaming sites being accessed by students - your filter for catching these is not very good, as evidenced by the long list I have to keep adding to each day.

    Thanks for pushing for an improvement in our filtering. As a first step, we just released an algorithm to do automatic website categorization for the three most requested categories – “pornography”, “online games”, and “movies and television”. Thus, if a student accesses an uncategorized site, we check the content on each page and add it to the above categories automatically if the content matches.

    What this means for you: considering that there are thousands of websites created every day specifically to circumvent URL blocking, category blacklisting will be more effective in blocking new and uncategorized sites. In addition, you should be able to spend less time manually tracking new sites that are getting around the filter and adding them to our and your blacklists.

    We are currently categorizing 2000+ sites every day that students are visiting that would get around any list or database type filter. Please let me know…

  3. Add proxy sites to categories for blocking

    I have students finding all kinds of proxy sites to get past blockages, but there is no category for all these.

    Thanks for your request! We just added another 3000 proxy sites to our blacklist. However, we also realize that proxy mirror sites are being added daily, so we are working on a way to automatically categorize new proxy sites that students visit as well as improving flagged activity so that even if a student is using a proxy, we are giving you insight and awareness about what they are doing.

    We just launched the first version of app reporting in the “Enhanced View” beta, including the ability to search by apps that your students have installed. A total list of apps is still in the works as some schools have 100s of thousands of apps and extensions being used by their students and we are working on the best way to display them.

    If you are interested in testing the functionality and providing feedback, please email me at cody@goguardian.com and we can get you on the beta!

    Thank you!

  5. Provide more device information in user reports

    When searching user information, it would be beneficial to see what device the person was using. In the event that a device is lost/stolen/broken we can use this information to definitevely identify who had the device last.

    Thanks for the feature request! We have just started working on a feature to show the most recent device that a student has used (hopefully with a full log coming soon).

    Thanks for alerting us to Leaf Browser Alpha. We are constantly adding new proxy/VPN/ghost browsers that allow students to bypass filtering and it has been added to our global blacklist. In the future, you can contact us directly when students find a bypass or add it to your own list of blacklisted apps. In addition, many schools use the “block all apps and extensions except the ones I allow” setting in the Google Admin Console to minimize the use of unauthorized apps.

    Hope this helps!

  7. Make a mobile-friendly site

    I suggest that you make a mobile-friendly site. Often I am out of my office away from a computer where I can easily whitelist or blacklist a website at a teachers' request. This would make this procedure much easier for me if it worked on a mobile device.
