I utilize Ad Blocking from the eero security suite. Using it keeps my wife from being able to click on links within some of her sights she visits. She uses 3 ipads and an iphone. Is there anyway to customize Ad Blocking so that it does not provide blocking to her 4 devices?
Morrison Great question! Under the Discover tab is where the Ad Blocking toggle is located. Just under the toggle, when activated, will be a section that says "Block for" and will default to "Network". You can tap on that to change the setting to only block for certain Family Profiles. You can add all devices to one Profile except those 4 devices, enable Ad Block on that Profile only, and those devices will be exempt from the setting.
Wonderful! I will give that a whirl this evening... I enjoy the ad blocking, but she is not happy about not getting to links on some of the websites she uses... I did NOT know it was Ad Blocker doing it, but I turned it off and she was able to utilize those links... turned it back on and she was NOT able to do so... so now I can take care of it for her... after all, happy wife make a happy life... :)
Worked! Thanks so much... I just created a profile for my devices and then invoked Ad Blocking for my profile.... no one else in the house other than my wife.... so all is well now... thanks for the quick reply and great advice!
I would call the above suggestion a workaround. Its not ideal to have to maintain a profile that aggregates all devices just in order to be able have an ad blocking exception for a handful of devices.
Ideally there would be an option to block for the entire network, *except* for one or more profiles.
