Child Safe not activating

Joining in


I'm having an issue when I try to activate ChildSafe on my account - as soon as I slide the button to switch it on, the following error message pops up: "Sorry the changes you made were not saved, please try again" .

It's the same when I try to switch on Virus Safe... I've tried to do it using both my laptop and mobile, same problem. Not sure if I'm missing something. 

Has anybody else had this issue?

When signed in try going to previous version of Web Safe site here on a desktop or laptop device and making changes. Does the issue persist?

Hi numba8, 

Thanks for taking the time to post about your issues in the Community.

We're sorry to hear you've been having an issue with changing your Child Safe settings. This is something we can certainly check for you but in order to do that I will need to confirm some information with you to pass security. 

I have sent you a direct message to allow us to do this with you in a private space. If you are using a PC/Laptop then you can just click on the little ✉ at the top right-hand side of the page to access your inbox. If you are on a mobile/tablet device then instead click on the little circle icon in the top right then select 'Messages'. 😊
