    Thank you for the reply.

    The domain names you listed are all related to Tik Tok. Is Yik Yak hosted on Tik Tok?

    Hello, 

    You are correct that these are Tik Tok domains not Yik Yak. Sorry for the confusion.

    Unfortunately the only two domains I could find listed are:

    yikyakapp.com
    yikyak.com

     

    You may want to try the following to see what domains are listed and then block these:

    To check this and there are generally three methods you can use to figure out which domains are being referenced when loading a website.

    1) Use the Web Developers Console option in Firefox (Tools -> Web Developer -> Web Console) and load the site on a computer that is not using OpenDNS, as it will list all of the domains referenced when a particular webpage loads.

    2) Another method of figuring out which domains may be blocked on your network is by using Chrome Developer Tools.
    Select the ⋮ menu at the top-right of your browser window, then select Tools -> Developer tools.
    Right-click on any page element and select Inspect element.
    On Windows and Linux, press Control - Shift - I keys to open Developer Tools
    Control - Shift - J to open Developer Tools and bring focus to the Console.
    Control - Shift - C to toggle Inspect Element mode.

    On Mac, press ⌥⌘I (Command - Option - I) keys to open Developer Tools
    ⌥⌘J (Command - Option - J) to open Developer Tools and bring focus to the Console.
    ^⌘C (Control - Option - C) to toggle Inspect Element mode.

    3) The site ***www.webpagetest.org*** also supplies this data and many people find this tool the easiest tool to use.
