Ive  just realised the childsafe filters no longer seem to be working!

Ive been on the phone to virgin and they were no help - theyve said the filters are one - its just not stopping anything!  (they used to work last time i looked - cant remember when that was).

Ive reset the router but that doesnt seem to make any difference

could anybody please help?

thanks

Setting the computer or mobile to use a public DNS bypasses the Child Safe filter.

Setting the Chrome browser to use a secure DNS may also bypass the Child Safe filter.

A VPN could also be used to bypass the Child Safe adult content filters.

Hi

im not running a vpn or doing any other special dns stuff to my Knowledge 🤔

what DNS shows here?
https://1.1.1.1/help/
you could change DNS to 1.1.1.3 and 1.0.0.3

It says 1’1’1’1 how do I change it? I know nothing about all this. Do I need to do it on every device?!

It shows your not using 1.1.1.1 just that you can connect to 1.1.1.1
see what this shows

It says this..

81.96.224.110. United Kingdom - Virgin Media Limited
Your sub DNS servers:
81.96.224.110

 

So you must be using VM DNS VM forward 194.168.4.100 and 194.168.8.100 to them recursion servers for lookup.

Likely the websafe is just broken you can get your own router to enter 1.1.1.3 and 1.0.0.3 for the same thing or change devices that need websafe.

How does websafe break?!

is it an issue with the router that replacing or resetting it will fix?

how do you mean change devices that need web safe?

thanks for the help  sorry but I have no idea about all this stuff 😞
