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)

  • eero and community,

    So as of Dec 2019, the ability to block specific websites does not exist within eero.  What have users done to resolve (or work around) this in the short term?  Clearly we are in a school year now and need to do something asap then waiting for software enhancements.    Do we use a VPN?  If so, which ones work best with eero?  Can the eero dev group give us some type of guidance to work with this current gap?    (I work in software dev and we do this all the time for current product gaps).

  • Seems users have been asking for this feature for two years - Its important and your competitors are offering it. I would suggest you move quickly as Google, Netgear and others offer this ability. One question I have is that domains can be blocked at the router level - what would happen if a router connected to the internet (a bridge) and then connected Eero? The idea being that the router could then block specific sites - and sites that are not blocked could leverage the speed and utility of the Eero mesh network?

  • eero, any update on blocking specific sites like youtube? It's been a year since I posted the request. Seems like the feature ask is a theme looking at the other requests

  • eero - wake up!

    We are in a new day in age where our children are learning at home - they finish a school meeting and all of the sudden fire up mine craft and youtube and as a result they get in trouble later.  As a responsible manufacturer and developer of this equipment, you need to unlock this feature.  COVID-19 demands it.   Get with the program, this should not be a difficult task to simply block a domain and/or URL from specific devices and/or family profiles.  Lets go!

      GotGrit btw - the 30 dollar routers can do this without any subscription fees, there is no excuse.

  • Yup. Getting ready to move to Orbi. Sick of waiting on Amazon and Eero

  • Just unplugged my Eero’s and plugged in Orbi. HUGE difference!! Much better control over what my kids can do/see. If you didn’t know, Orbi has “Circle” built-in/on-board. Too easy now to control time spent, sites visited, and other features...all built in.

  • This is starting to become a critically needed feature. It's disappointing Eero hasn't caught up with modern times yet. I've been a staunch supporter of Eero but the lack of updates and control for Eero Secure are discouraging.

    Eero! Please make some improvements in this area soon before you lose all your customers. I don't want to leave Eero but competition is looking better and better.

  • I wish I had found this thread before investing in Eero, not blocking sites has become crucial during the pandemic, where my kids have to have access to electronics but I don't want them on Youtube and other sites.  I'm beyond my 30 day return date. :(  Guess I'm going to have to see them at a loss and move to Orbi.

  • I tried calling Eero support. Waiting on hold one Friday afternoon 2 weeks ago for over 1 hr and 30 min.(even though your hold message said 17 min hold time) What gives Eero?  Your support used to be Johnny on the Spot quick.

  • Let me be clear. This feature is essential for parents. If you cannot deliver on this feature (and you have already had 2 years to do so), then you will lose my business. I will update my reviews on Amazon.com and I will go and purchase a different product, such as an Orbi, which does offer this feature.
