There are some web address that seems impossible to unblock, for example:
“c.whatsapp.net” “media-fco1-1.cdn.whatsapp.net” “edge-mqtt.facebook.com” “lithium.facebook.com” “b-api.facebook.com” etc… all these requests come from smartphones.
I can see them in the Internet Logs and the reason of the blocks is “Proxy/VPN”. For some of these the port is “TCP:80”, for others “TCP:443” or “UDP:443”.
I write them (in every way) in the white list but they can’t to be unblocked.
Try it yourself: Take a mobile phone and just sent a message in whatsapp or just open the facebook and messenger app. If in your parental control are active Literal IP Addesses, Proxy,VPN,Tor you’ll have those addresses in the internet logs. Then copy them in the white list. They will not be unblocked.

@casino What I meant is the named domains should not be blocked even when “Block Proxy/VPN” is checked. What you showed in the screenshot was probably temporary (i.e., you won’t see the facebook.com domains consistently blocked).
With “Block VPN/Proxy” & “Block Literal IP” checked, Whatsapp can’t deliver messages because it’s literally connecting directly to IP addresses. You need to white list each IP address Whatsapp is using. But that can take a lot of time.
For your own devices, it is better that you create a separate profile and turn off blocking for VPN/Proxy & Literal IP address.
