AmpliFi HD build in Ad blocker blocks Fitbit app Clock and Apps connections


  • The Ad blocker built into AmpliFi HD blocks the Fitbit app from being able to access the Clocks and Apps sections of the app. There should be a way to manage the Ad blocker list locally to add/remote sites that are found to be blocked.

    To recreate:
    1 - turn on Ad blocker in amplifi.lan web page settings
