For example when you put youtube.com in the blacklist and then go to https://www.youtube.com it is not blocked.  If funamo is unable to filter secure traffic then this is a huge limitation and makes internet filtering in funamo very limited. Please let me know if there is a fix for this, thank you.

Https is blocked by Funamo if it is in blacklist. I had similar question before because I was getting network error, not the green Blocked by Funamo page for https sites. Their support said that it is expected behavior because https is encrypted. So they cannot show the blocked by Funamo page. Instead, you get network error so the site cannot be loaded. Is that what you are seeing?

Jean is correct. Funamo filters both http and https traffic. The only difference is that for https, you will get network error when blocked.

Unfortunately this is not the behavior I'm getting on the phone, I can go to https://www.youtube.com even though I have youtube.com in the blacklist, same with https://www.redit.com.  It works the way you describe it on the tablet but not on the phone, same version of Funamo installed on both.  I need a fix for this please, thank you.
