Why Both a Block Screen and a Pop-up?

I'm trying NoF on a child account I created for testing purposes. When the 'child' tries to access a forbidden web page, NoF displays a block screen in the browser and a little pop-up appears over the system notification area. Okay, I understand the block screen. But why show a pop-up over the notification area in addition to the block screen? The pop-up contains essentially identical information as the block screen - why is it needed?

HI Bulldoggy,

Thanks for the inquiry.  When a website is blocked, the pop-up screen provides a link that allows the monitored child to request access to the site and the block screen doesn't.

I'll pass your suggestion to the team for their consideration.

Thanks,

Katie

Thanks for your reply.

Surely the block screen could also provide a link that allows the monitored child to request access to the site. This would make the system tray pop-up unnecessary. Thanks for passing along this suggestion.
