Network Administrator Mode Youtube

I have recently been blocked from visiting many youtube videos, as they are now in restricted mode and blocked by the network administrator.  This only happens on my mac, not my android, which is on the same network.

I have turned off the child settings in Websafe, but it makes no difference.  I am unable to change the settings in youtube.  Any suggestions?

Re: Network Administrator Mode Youtube

Hi Bermygreen,

I've just done a quick google search and it's happening quite often with You Tube.

A few tips/workarounds are on this site.piunikaweb 

The latest Update 8 on (June 26, 2021) suggests :-

YouTube recommends verifying your date of birth to avoid running into any restrictions on the platform. Hence, in case you’ve not added your DOB info on YouTube, we’d suggest adding it as soon as possible. We’ve seen similar reports where age-restriction error is appearing on multiple living room devices and we’re looking into it. Meanwhile, we recommend verifying your birthday on your Google account with these steps: https://yt.be/help/t1g5

Re: Network Administrator Mode Youtube

Thank you for the advice, but that didn't work either.  I'm in a different country now too, and it still doesn't work.  No problem with safari or chrome incognito though, so not the end of the world.

Re: Network Administrator Mode Youtube

In your Google account have you set your location to United Kingdom and set Restricted Mode to Off?
