Child safe not working

I have just had my broadband connected. I went into settings and turned child safe on.

I am still able to see websites that the child safe page state are blocked. What have I done wrong

Re: Child safe not working

childsafe is pretty pointless and easy to bypass. just change to another dns server and it no longer works

Re: Child safe not working

Make sure your device is not using a Proxy, VPN or DNS other then VM DNS.

Turn web safe off for a hour then turn it back on.

Re: Child safe not working

So how do I limit websites that my kids can get too?
How do I check the dns?

Re: Child safe not working

Hi tank76, 

 

Thanks for your post, I'm sorry you're having an issue with the web safe.

 

I've popped you over a private message so I can go through security, just want to check web safe is showing as active from our side too.
