We are dedicated to providing innovative solutions that empower individuals and communities to navigate the digital world securely and in accordance with their values. Today, we are thrilled to announce a significant development in our ongoing efforts to safeguard online experiences.

WhatsApp Channels Blocking on KosherOS:

In response to the evolving landscape of digital communication, we have been diligently working to enhance our filtering capabilities to address the challenges posed by WhatsApp Channels. We are pleased to share that we have developed a comprehensive solution that will empower users to exercise greater control over their WhatsApp experience.

What Does This Mean?

Through an upcoming KosherOS system update, we will be rolling out the ability to block key functionalities related to WhatsApp Channels on select Pixel devices. This update will enable users to:

  1. Block Channel Discovery: Prevent the ability to search for new channels, ensuring a more controlled content environment.
  2. Block Channel Viewing: Restrict access to view channel content, allowing users avoid viewing objectionable content.
  3. Block Channel Following: Limit the ability to follow channels, offering a higher degree of content control.

Supported Devices:

Initially, this enhanced blocking feature will be available as a system update package for our newer Pixel models, including the Pixel 4, Pixel 6a, Pixel 7, and Pixel 7a. We are also exploring the possibility to extend this functionality to a broader range of devices in the future. The ability to block Channel discovery has already been rolled out to all our modern phones, including models older than the Pixel 4.

Our Ongoing Commitment:

At SafeTelecom, our commitment to providing innovative, reliable, and secure solutions remains unwavering. We understand the importance of creating digital spaces that align with your values and sensitivities, and we are dedicated to continually evolving our technology to meet your needs.
We want to extend our gratitude to our community for their continued support and feedback, which drives our efforts to make the digital world a safer place for all.

Stay tuned for the upcoming KosherOS system update, which will bring these enhanced blocking capabilities to your supported Pixel device. Together, we can navigate the digital landscape with confidence and security!
