I do not like blocksi because although it hasn't blocked any sites, it bothers me that the school can see what I am doing at my house.

I mean, come on. We have GoGuardian. It contains everything blocksi does, but it works so much better. Blocksi can block things that are completely harmless, and can even contain some useful information.

5/3/20: For me, Blocksi is blocking many websites that I use for education. It blocks some educational Youtube Videos and other websites for not only me but other people as well. They also forgot to block any inappropriate websites. When we go to some store websites for projects to look up prices and stuff, it's blocked. As well as many educational games. When I have free time I like to play games in class, but its all blocked as well as many Youtube videos that are supposedly "inappropriate." Please be smarter in blocking and unblocking certain websites. 6/4/20: Blocksi is blocking so many sites during the summer for me, and many other witnesses. You would think that in the summer, they can turn-off Blocksi, because its summer, and during corona virus, most people have nothing to do other than use their laptop. Why can't they just turn off Blocksi just for once? It got worse in the summer. Bedtime lock was added, letting you use your computer till 10 PM. Which was a horrible decision, because of ITS SUMMER. THEY BLOCKED MORE GAMES and more sites. 8/12/20: Look at pages 11-20. You see a bunch of reviews from this "one teacher". He/she keeps rating it 5 stars continuously. You can only rate it once, per Google account. This makes sense, but this person wrote around 100 reviews. Why they did that you ask? Simply put it like this. Blocksi is hiring a bunch of people to rate Blocksi 5 stars. They want their site to be "well recognized," and very useful. WHEN IT'S NOT. There's even more proof! Look at each of these people's profile picture on page 11+, it's blank. You would think out of all 100 of these reviews there would be at least one profile picture that is different. But no, they are all the same. Meaning, its obviously the same person. And think about it, why would a teacher rate blocksi 5 stars on like 100 different accounts. A teacher doesn't have that much free time grading assignments. If it's not a teacher, then who is it? ITS EITHER A BUNCH OF BOT ACCOUNTS RATING IT 5 STARS OR A BUNCH OF BLOCKSI EMPLOYEES BLOCKSI HIRED TO RATE IT 5 STARS. THIS IS TRULY DISGUSTING. YOU CANT JUST GET YOUR EXTENSION RATED 4 STARS BECAUSE YOU WANT MORE MONEY. Blocksi used to be rated 1 star before all of this, and I understand why. Its a horrible extension, and if you install it, you are giving them to access so many of your sites, information google docs, etc, and letting them block it. Teachers, and schools, please just get GoGuardian instead. Rated 1 Star.

Also when citing or looking at certain articles for my essay, they appear to be blocked, just because of Bloksi thinking that these websites are "shady" or "inappropriate". Because of that, I had to find a new website to research about my topic!

1 star because it blocks many things actually useful for learning. also most of the 5 star reviews here (or all, i only read the first 50) are all on the same date, which makes me think that it is laternate accounts of the same person doing htis, possibly hired by blocksi.

Yes, and they all have the same profile picture. Maybe one or two with the same profile picture makes sense, but all 100 of those reviews are submitted by either the same person with different accounts hired by blocksi. Which is totally not ok. Why would one teacher write like 100 reviews on the same account? You can't even do that. Blocksi used to be rated 1 star, but thanks to Blocksi and their hired workers, they are now rated 4 stars. This is unfair and isn't right. If you are reading this. Consider rating Blocksi 1 star because they Block useful things like google, youtube, google classroom. And blocks all sites after 11 PM. SO BLOCKSI. STOP HIRING PEOPLE TO RATE YOUR GARBAGE WEBSITE 5 STARS. >:(

This review section is very unhelpful, filled with a mix of disgruntled kids trolling and empty praise. So here's a detailed review from a mature student whose school has used BMEE for years: It is very unreliable. It's good at blocking a specific URL- it's nearly impossible to get into a site that it's targeted -but it's horrible at choosing which sites TO block. For example, a couple years ago my school, which had already been using BMEE, decided to start blocking videogames. I don't know when exactly they made this decision because I, a regular gamer, didn't even NOTICE. And I didn't for 2 reasons: 1. I'm used to random sites being blocked: I don't know the cause of this, but BMEE will (seemingly at random) add new sites to their block list. It can be anything; something as random as an author's homepage, as trustworthy as the state congress' contact info, as educational as an online physics simulation, as essential as Google Drive, and even (yes, even this happened once) the school's own website! My classmates/instructors are used to the frustration of blocksi getting in the way and thwarting approved activity 2. I could (and can) still access games just fine: If you have slightly more persistence than a 4-yr-old, getting around blocksi is laughably easy. I've seen dozens, if not hundreds of sites completely slip under its radar. And certain specific blocking options, like filtering-by-keyword or blocking Youtube videos, just don't work at all! In the above examples, I'm only talking about videogames; but I can safely hypothesize that if I were trying to access something actually dangerous or obscene, BMEE would be just as ineffective. Blocksi does come with a lot of features, meant to give teachers a lot of control. But I have almost NEVER seen a teacher use them; For example, yes, a teacher can kick a student out of a website, but why would they? They're in the same room as the student; confronting them directly is easier, faster, and doesn't escalate tensions the way forcefully kicking them would. Most teachers either have easier and/or more comfortable ways of doing things already, or trust their students as responsible enough to not require such harsh monitoring. Yet after several years, my school has worked with BMEE enough that it's now pretty good at it's job. But it's been a long, drawn out battle, and this beast is not fully tamed. I would advise trying for another software; this one can work, but it's more trouble than it's worth.
