Google Home connection issues related to squidguard safesearch

  • Hi,
    After a lot of time trying to troubleshoot why my google home was not connecting to the internet, I found that if I disabled safesearch under Common ACL of SquidGuard it started working.
    This doesn't make sense to me as I thought SquidGuard only applies to devices using the proxy.

    The google home is not going through proxy and connects direct. However this setting disrupts its internet connection.

    Is my understanding of this wrong?
