How do I block a website for a specific user?

I have profiles set up for all devices in the house, but want to have the ability to block specific websites for specific profiles (otherwise I'd ditch Eero plus and use an OpenVPN solution - but would rather this be user-specific)

  • Hello, Sieglock, you mentioned 2 months ago that this feature was being worked on and would be available in late summer.  Do you have an update on this feature being available?

  • I hadn't chimed in here yet.  Though I did call support and express my desire for per-device/profile site blacklisting (even if just via simple DNS; nothing too fancy; I don't need to block all potential workarounds).  

    I have 4 eero Pros in what otherwise might be a sweet setup.  I got the 4th specifically so I could route the whole network through 1 eero so I could use eero Secure.  Now, I think maybe I wasted money on that and maybe can get something with better controls?  Used to tell my friends how great and easy eero is, and it almost is, but if you need this feature, might as well look elsewhere at this point.

    Please step up here eero.  Many of us otherwise think you're a great option and would like to recommend you.

  • eero is really a substandard product and I would never recommend it to anyone. All marketing and no tech. An option to approve new devices would immediately solve my issues and is simple to incorporate. Blocking by IP/domain/subdomains should be included. An eero representative said they were working on this fix but I guess that was fake news. Meanwhile, anyone who wants to access my network (and everyone else who uses an eero) has free reign because anyone can do it in a few minutes with grade school level software. If you are considering using eero - do not do it. Its a trap. It does not work. Terrible product.

  • Literally just signed up based on google searches and tech support. I need to block youtube ASAP. Disappointed this hasn't been solved as yet.

  • I've replied a few times to this question so thought I'd send an update.  I just added Disney Circle Home Plus to our eero network.  We used to have Circle v1, but it never worked well.  I have it plugged into an 8-port switch off my gateway eero.  I removed eero profiles and then re set them up in Circle.  Much deeper blocking tech with Circle.

      mrpme1  How is the performance with the Circle Home Plus? I have considered going this route but I read comments saying the ARP Poisoning approach used could degrade overall network performance.

    • icarswell We are currently scheduled to launch some new website blocking features in late October / early November. The team has been hard at work on this!

      Sieglock Will there be an announcement or further information posted here on this chain or where?  I would not want to have an update pushed out without some background, especially on this topic.

      icarswell Currently, I'm tracking one device (microsoft surface) while at home.  We've had to work with the Teen/Adult settings since it was blocking some school websites.  Still continuing to test with just home devices, but I haven't noticed low performance.  I'll look further at ARP to confirm.

    • mrpme1 - yes! When we launch we will make sure everyone knows about the new functionality. And we will update open feature requests in the community feed with new information.

      Sieglock Will it have the ability to pause (aka turn on/off) certain websites like Youtube)?  I can wait another week or two if it will.
