When I pause internet to a macbook pro, while all other sites are blocked, google related sites are not. I can go to google.com, run a search, click on videos and view youtube videos. I can login to gmail and chat on hangouts. Since these are the two main activities I am trying to block, this feature is kind of useless.....anyone else has success blocking google when interner is paused on a device?
It blocks google and youtube on my iPhone 6s when I pause it and my Windows PC, and Linux CentOS 7 and Linux Mint 18.1. It has to do with https protocol. When you end up using http you get paused screen and with https you get a connection error. Did you try clearing history and cache?
