Recently I searched the browsing history of a student and happened upon some searches that gave me great concern. I contacted support to find out why I hadn’t received an email about searches for suicide and I was told that our school had not selected to receive alerts for self-harm or explicit material. I looked into this and that was correct. THESE TRIGGERS SHOULD BE SET BY DEFAULT! Why would our small school pay for a filtering service like GoGuardian if we didn’t care that students visited sites with explicit material? or sites that encourage self-harm? I get emails when a student does a search for a cute haircut. Why send info about trivial matters and ignore the serious ones?

Yes, we did not at the time have the trigger set for "self harm." However, there's no doubt this should be set by default.
you have it for blocking websites not for a suicide hotline
