Eero Secure+ not blocking as it was before


Eero Secure+ used to block a majority of the exposures tested by the website test above. Now on my IPad Pro with IOS 14.2 it blocks NOTHING! Zero. Nada. I reported this problem to Eero support and they have yet to respond. It appears that IOS is bypassing the Z-Scaler DNS settings. Anyone know what is going on?

  • Is your iPad assigned to a profile that is supposed to block some things?

  • I get the same results, nothing blocked even with Advanced Security and Ad Blocking turned on.

  • I have a NextDNS account I used on my Asus routers. I decided to setup my eero to use this service instead of the eero Secure stuff. NextDNS works much better except on the eero, there is no way to identify my devices individually like my Asus routers would. NextDNS has a client that can be installed on the Asus that tracks each connected device. Not a deal breaker. 

  • Eero support basically admitted they screwed up with they added WiFi 6 support and that caused their interface to Zscaler not to work properly, therefore not blocking as it should. ☹️ My 5 Eero systems are now apparently scanning for malware properly after upgrading to the latest firmware. No worries - I let Eero support know how badly they suck.
