    Hi,

    I’ve setup a whitelist for Google drive by allowing “google.com”. However, it doesn’t allow access to folders and docs because I think youtube.com is part of the authentication chain and I’ve blocked youtube.com as on certain schedules I don’t want family to access Youtube.

    Once I whitelist youtube.com, I can access all of the folders, etc. on Google Drive.

    How do I enable full access to drive.google.com while still blocking youtube.com?

    You may try to whitelist accounts.youtube.com, or set a less restrictive calendar for it.

    From your current configuration, take away accounts.youtube.com only. Is YouTube blocked?

    @edrouterhome You are right. We’ll see if we can make this work with the next update. Thanks for your feedback!

    Thanks. Please let me know when it is fixed. Do I have to download fix to router or does it auto-update?

    Also, have you used wireshark or some other tool to sniff URLs called when people access Youtube to watch videos and also the URLs accessed when trying to access drive.google.com. Maybe then there is a URL pattern that can be used for blocklist and whitelist. Maybe that’s what you are planning to address in next release. Thanks
