Squid bypass entries disable SquidGuard

  • Hello,

    I have pfSense 2.4.2, squid and squidguard installed. Everything worked fine, such that the content was cached and when visiting denied websites I was redirected to the squidguard error page. But I have experience some issues with WhatsApp not being able to upload images and videos. Therefore, I have entered the urls whatsapp.com and whatsapp.net as Bypass Proxy for These Destination IPs. After I have entered those values, WhatsApp was working again. But to my surprise, SquidGuard did not deny access to prohibited websites anymore.

    So, what is going on? What am I doing wrong? Or are there any other possibilities to make WhatsApp work and still be able to use SquidGuard? Please find attached screenshot for better understanding.
