To help promote the proper use of the internet in LDS meetinghouses, many websites, social media, and apps will be blocked if they are not related to Church purposes.
The change in the internet configuration in Church buildings beginning in May will block access to sites such as Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Xfinity TV, Netflix, and Hulu. Accessing these sites during Church meetings often creates difficulty for those who are trying to use it for Church purposes.
The following is the list of non-Church related websites and apps that are being added to the list to be blocked:
- Xfinity TV
- Amazon Video
- Clash of Clans
- Big Fish Games
This information was sent today in a My Callings email to stake and district presidents, bishops and branch presidents, stake and district clerks, and technology specialists.
