We fixed a bug where, if you enabled MITM, limiting access to YouTube Kids could cause School Manager to always redirect iOS users from YouTube to YouTube Kids.
If your students use iOS devices and your school allow students to watch selected videos while blocking the rest of YouTube (known as YouTube Partial Filtering), you will need to update your Block YouTube rule so that it blocks both youtube.com and youtubekids.com
Log into School Manager as an Owner/Administrator or Filtering Administrator
Go to Filtering > Content Filtering
Find your Block YouTube rule and select edit.
In the Type field, add youtubekids.com as a website. Do not add it as a Signature.
When you have two website type entries, youtube.com and youtubekids.com, save your changes.
