Allow Users to Contact an Administrator

It's possible to allow end-users to directly contact an administrator from the block page. After filling out the contact form, the email sent to the administrator contains the user's message as well as diagnostic information.

By enabling this option, users can let you know when they feel a website should not be blocked, and the diagnostic information will help you determine whether to allow the site or not.

Assistance With Allowing Websites

Sometimes, you may be unsure if a website should be allowed or not, or have questions about a classification. Contact Support if you have any questions related to domain classification.
