Chat blocked but whatsApp and Snapchat still working
When I first blocked chat sites on my settings, it stopped access to apps like WhatsApp and snapchat on connected phones (no mobile data). But this is no longer the case. Is this filter not working or do I need to do something else? Thanks for any help
Re: Chat blocked but whatsApp and Snapchat still working
VM's web filters are fairly basic. TBH I'm surprised they originally stopped apps connecting as thats a different proposition than stopping access through a web browser. A stand alone router with decent parental controls is your best bet, and even then its hit and miss.
Personally I go down the line of restricting all web access at certain times, combined with talking to my kids about appropriate use. Not saying its foolproof, but most "blocks" are pretty trivial to work around. Prohibition never works.
