Websafe not blocking apps on iPhone and iPad eg Instagram

On our wavelength

I have lots of sites blocked through websafe and this works if searching for that site through a browser but it no longer blocks sites if they are accessed via an app.

example Instagram, I cant access it though a browser search so that part is working but I can access it through the app.

this has just started happening and I don’t know why, the apps used to be blocked but now it doesn’t work. I think it’s since an Apple update but I’m not sure, my iPad and iPhone isn’t using a vpn.

Please help thanks.


Hey Suexx123, thank you for reaching out and I am so sorry to hear about this.

I will send you a PM now so can get this website blocked for you.

Please look out for my message. Cheers

Apple Private Browsing tools are a form of VPN that would bypass Child safe.  
Any mobile phone or app or browser that implements an Encrypted DNS / Private DNS also would skip past Child Safe.
