Securly is an intrusive and insulting interface; It is a slap in the face to both students and teachers, blocking the majority of YouTube videos and websites important for research/projects/presentations/etc. "Securly" is so severely warped and broken that if you were to go to Google, searched for a blocked website, and open the website in a new tab, your other tabs will suddenly redirect to the Securly "blocked!" page as well. At least maintain a blocking system that fundamentally works well and supports more flexibility for both students AND teachers. A simple fix for this problem is to:

1. Block School WiFi on our home accounts and give us home accounts back

2. Enable so that when we get on our home WiFi securly stops blocking.

I don't recall signing any form that says we cant have home accounts. We feel that they are owning our Chromebooks that we purchased. I understand why they do this at school but under our parents supervision at home we feel that we should have access to our own accounts. I know many people who had photos, games, and files that were special to them on their home accounts that they no longer have access to. Securly has been invented for one reason and one reason only: tormenting children. It blocks every website known to man, and then some. I doubt anyone appreciates it; I have even heard teachers angered by its "Page Blocked!" when they try to access nothing more than an educational site. This program is completely useless for anything other than pranking your friends... I take that back. That's too cruel a punishment for anyone. If you think Securly is a good choice for keeping your school internet safe, think again. It does nothing but make internet browsing a huge hassle which becomes almost unbearable on a daily basis. I will admit that it does a good job of blocking websites - educational ones. Now, some websites that aren't school appropriate manage to slip through its cracks, but I've found only two educational, school-friendly sites that aren't limited by this pathetic waste of storage. Thank you for your time, and I hope you will sign this petition to solve this problem.
