NextDNS did not unblock website after disable the block

I blocked Roblox for school days and when i unblock it manually on friday night, roblox is still not accessible.  I have to disable the dns setting in router to make roblox accessible. Why is this happening? is the unblock not taking place immediately and need time to take effect?

  • You should just enable Recreation Time and set the hours there to enable it on Friday so it's all automated. So just deleting any sort of Denylist etc for Roblox enable the parent controls for it and Press the clock icon to enable Recreation Time then you'll be set. Here is an example image.

      Hey the recreation time setting is not flexible enough, up to 11.30pm only.  If it can be set until 12am midnight then that would be great.

      iieeann Are you trying to block it for the entire school week (even once they're home on weeknights & Friday night)? If so, you may want to try enabling recreation time for Saturdays & Sundays; The max recreation window per day is 23.5 hours so there'll be a 30 minute gap of no access before midnight each weekend night but you could still manually disable the parental restriction if they need access during the gap window (you'll have to wait for the cache to update or manually flush the cache if it doesn't do it automatically after 5 mins approximately) and then re-enable the restriction after the gap window passes

      Jenessa Yeah if you guys want to do it manually what she said is exactly right. It will clear the cache. If it still doesn't work do a DNS flush on your PC/Computer.

    Yes, it takes 5 minutes.
