Bark Home partially blocks GroupMe

I’ve seen a couple of articles on Bark’s website and forum about GroupMe. But there is no explanation on how to enable or disable its functionality. It not an option in the Social Media Apps section for Rules.

The interesting thing is, I have Bark Home and my and my wife’s phone are on the Unmanaged list. We can receive text messages in GroupMe, but the images aren’t downloaded and we can’t post while on our home network. I want to allow GroupMe, as this is the way our families communicate. But simply entering “” on the whitelist section (allowed exceptions) doesn’t seem like it would work. Is there a way to open GroupMe up completely?
