Blocking Social Media

You can block sites whenever you need to by accessing your Custom Website List, adding the URLs you want to block, and refreshing the Covenant Eyes software on your devices.

In some cases, you may need to add multiple URLs to the Custom Website List to block one site and all its visual elements. This is necessary because some sites rely on other sites and services to host specific components of their website. This article shares the additional URLs that must be added to your Custom Website List in order to block social media websites.

Note: For safety purposes, once you add a blocked site to your Custom Website List, only your Filter Guardian can unblock the site.


Important: You will notice that none of the URLs listed below include “www.” That’s on purpose. So, in order to block these sites effectively, make sure that they are entered into the Block List exactly as you see below.
