Parental Controls on Mobile

I have parental controls disabled on my account (I'm 41 years old so I trust myself!) yet I still find I can't access certain sites and the page that comes up tells me to disable parental controls to access it!

 

For example http://bloody-disgusting.com/ which is a horror movie/book/game website is blocked.

 

Anyone know why this is happening?

 

Thanks

Re: Parental Controls on Mobile

Its a glitch at VM end, a phone call  can sort it, or change the settings in your account online to the opposite setting from what it is now  and wait a good 20mins then if it does not work change it back and it may work.

 

I ended up with access to all sites though it was set to block but now its working for me set to correct settings and I am not touching it again just to be safe.

 

I never did mess with it, I assume VM blocked it be default when they revamped site.

Re: Parental Controls on Mobile

Thanks for that.

 

I've now turned on Parental Controls and I can get access to the sites that were blocked.

 

Makes absolutely no sense but like yourself I'm just going to leave it and not touch it again!

 

Cheers
