Freedome blocking sites

Why is Freedome blocking Pornhub? I can access the site but the videos won't play. This happens on every platform. Is there a specific reason for this? Disabling the tracking option lets me watch the video but I don't think I should be forced into choosing from being tracked or watching a simple video. If this issue is not solved I'll take my business elsewhere where they don't control what I can watch.

Re: Freedome blocking sites

Hello Markoceella, 

 

Pornhub is tracking what the users do online and refuses to show any videos if it cannot confirm that their user behavior tracking is working. As the anti-tracking option in Freedome is meant to block such tracking, disabling it is necessary to access their videos.

 

Freedome does not block the video itself but the tracking attempts.



Best Regards

-Ben

Thank you Ben for clearing this up. Apparently I was barking up the wrong tree, my apologies.
