I've decided to block social media on our network, but wanted to allow Whatsapp as I use it with dh. I tried entering the Whatsapp website address on the allowed website/app list, but it won't work. I've allowed twitter to work and that does, so what am I doing wrong?

It's not a social media app..... Ive just discovered that! I wonder why it won't work then.

Oh fgs it's really annoying me. I've allowed Facebook, but the photos won't load. Whatsapp works sometimes. Anyone?

badly designed parental controls, if on it will cause a load of problems with exceptions, if you need to use it then turn the blocking off, its the only way that it will work properly

Ok thanks. It's rather annoying.

The hub 5 is a right pain. Bit all or nothing. Can't get Web cams or network storage to be accessed from outside, the firewall blocks it even if you try and open ports.
