The GoGuardian App on iPad Release Notes

1.7.4


May 2, 2024

New

  • Hardcoded Kandji's hostnames to avoid service disruption of MDM profiles.

Fixed

Fixed

1.4.4


January 17, 2024

New

  • Increased accessibility by improving element headers and focus for screen readers and supporting alternative input methods (e.g., keyboard navigation).

Fixed

  • Fixed a bug allowing users to log in with the previous user's cached Google credentials at the single sign-on (SSO) screen.

  • Fixed a bug causing some websites to return empty responses on connections over HTTP/2 protocol.

Changed

  • For GoGuardian Admin Website URLs and Website Categories, the proxy is now enforced only on HTML responses. This reduces excessive blocks, latency, and the frequency of manually exempting websites.

1.2.2


September 28, 2023

New

  • Improved alternative text for accessibility.


Fixed

  • Fixed a bug that caused the privacy bubble to show for students during out-of-school hours.

  • Hardcoded commonly used MDM hosts, allowing devices to access the internet on the iPadOS Setup Assistant screen. The GoGuardian App previously needed to be opened at least once for the device to access the internet.
