How do I block Hotspot Shield VPN?


My sons have found Hotspot Shield at school to circumvent academic filters. They have brought the technology home and have no issues bypassing Koalasafe to access the portal of choice when XBox and Fortnite are turned off - Youtube.

Device Profile has video - Blocked as well as Filter Mode - High. Once Hotspot Shield fired up Youtube is accessible.

How do I block Hotspot Shield?


Try going into Filter options>Categories>More>Proxies & VPNs and set it to Blocked if it isn’t already. If that doesn’t work you might look into a third-party program/app. I use Qustodio on my boy’s phone to prevent him from accessing things he’s not supposed to at school. Qustodio works on PC, Mac, Android, and iOS. It’s not the only choice but it’s one of the better ones I’ve found.
