Web Guard is randomly blocking websites on our plan. We have T-Mobile Home Internet, which means this is a pretty major issue since we can’t just hop on wifi to get past it. It’s happened a few times in the past, and started about a month ago. The latest activation was for http://www.deliciouseveryday.com/burmese-chickpea-tofu-recipe/ (returns: “ Content Restricted : The Web Guard feature has been enabled on your mobile line and is restricting your access to this content. An authorized person on your mobile account can disable this restriction through the account management website. “) which is baffling, since I can’t see why this would ever be blocked even if we were using Web Guard. Which, to be clear, we are not. I’ve checked my account and it is set to No Restrictions.
This needs to be fixed. I can’t have random websites blocked. What if the next one is a required site for my job?
Setting the website to https lets it through. Why is this happening? This needs to be fixed ASAP. Your web filter should absolutely NOT be triggering because of a website using http instead of https. I don’t particularly care if it’s some heavy handed attempt to protect users, this is not okay behavior *especially* for home internet. If I set filtering to none then I expect it to be No Filtering.

Call or chat with T-Force to have WebGuard turned off if you have it turned off on your accounts but it’s still “on.”
