@ModTeam, is the Set time tab a new feature and why were my previous Categories wiped / reset?

To be fair the websafe feature really isn't worth the paper it isn't written on, its easily bypassed just be using googles free DNS server instead of the VM one, and that can be set on each device that connects to your network so i wouldn't really rely on it to do much

Shh… politicians will hear and want legislation to ban DNS

Only touch  Web Safe when troubleshooting posts here otherwise I stay well clear of it.

Categories reappeared but reset, i.e. lost previous settings. Was there an update to Web Safe (specifically Child Safe)?

Were Categories restored by the resolution? if not then you may want to warn customers who rely on this feature of the need to reapply their custom Categories settings.
