    This is not the concept. The service is not to allow or block services, but just domain names.

    I've written the domain names, but the authentication for office and appstore fail when you block some sites.

    Then don’t block the domains (not sites). Also “services” would be a collection of domain names, same as categories. A DNS service knows only about domains, not about any other objects like sites or services. And how many “services” would you expect to appear, 100, 1000?

    I understand DNS - that's why it's a suggestion. I've blocked some sites because of my children but still need to be able to activate Word, Excel etc, unless I bypass opendns I can't do this.

    Identity management should be allowed through as a category or service (only if possible), saying all that you may still get stuck with MFA.

    Yes, this feature exists and comes with the commercial service Umbrella. They will not release it for the free service.

    What about paid family service?

    OpenDNS VIP doesn’t come with this feature.

    And that's my point, it should. I would pay for it as I need openDNS to protect my children but still need access to Office activation as part of my ability to install it on 5 devices.

    Ok, you raised the idea, and now vote it up and hope that others vote on it. Votes is all what counts.

    Why not just whitelist the domains you want to unblock? That will allow them regardless of how many categories of block they are in.

    You are limited (to 30 I think) black/white list entries in the free service.
