    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…

    We have a major problems with homeade game sites being built on Google Sites. We do need Google Sites to be open and I block game sites that I find in the records, but its a constant game of cat and mouse and the mouse is winning. Someone mentioned that categorization isn't effective anymore and I would tend to agree with that, given the overwhelming number of new sites that are created every day. It would be cool if algorithms or AI could somehow play a part to automatically detect and block, or at least flag them so an admin can review.

    I agree, I've asked for this with tech support people that I've chatted with. Being able to pull up any screen in our domain is something that would be very useful for admins!

    I’m happy to announce that you now have the ability to remove unnecessary theft recovery sessions on the dashboard! Just hover over a theft recovery session you want to remove and a red trashcan will appear. Click on the trashcan to delete a session. Try it out and let me know how it works for you!

    Thanks for the feedback on new features! While this isn’t currently a feature in GoGuardian Admin, it is a feature in GoGuardian Fleet (fleet.goguardian.com). Check it out and let me know if it is a good fit for what you are trying to do.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the feature request! A beta version of Penalty Box has just been launched, which will allow you to build a specific list of “whitelist only” websites for students that need special attention. In conjunction, we are now starting to work on a new version of bypass passwords so you can give students special access to specific websites when they need it. As you requested this feature, you have special access before it is released more widely to give feedback and suggest improvements. Try it out at https://admin.goguardian.com/policy/penalty-box
