Child Safe not working on daughters fire tablet

Hi

I have the child safe enabled. i know its working on my other devices as if i try and access a porn site its blocked. but on my daughters fire tablet it allows access. ive tried factory reset and no change. im confused how this tablet isnt being restricted like all my other devices. has anyone had the same issue or know why?

 

Many thanks

Re: Child Safe not working on daughters fire tablet

Make sure your tablet is configured to use the Virgin Media DNS servers. They are 194.168.4.100 and 194.168.8.100

Virgin's Parental Controls will not work unless these servers are used.

FYI: in its default configuration a Virgin Media router will assign a DNS setting of 192.168.0.1 to a device it allocated an IP Address to.

Thanks for that.

I didn't appreciate that the Virgin hub has built in DNS server capabilities.
