Not as secure, but you can set the computer to use a DNS filter as well.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

I found a way to turn off netspark on Android even thou I set it to have a password to remove and all other things it wanted. I need it to work always. Anyone who can help me can PM me. (I dunno if I set it up wrong or its an actual issue with the program, if it is an actual issue I don't want to tell everyone how to do it)
I'm not who you think I am.

Was all the persistence settings turned on? (IIRC they have a 2nd app installed through settings, as well as System Admin, and more such setting.)

Thanks for all the help everyone. I'm going to update the app with the one from the website, instead of the app store.

And turn on all these settings. Then let us know how it is.

In other filter news, Livingent (or Gentech as they changed their name to) updated their Android solution, and now they have MDM (meaning they don't need to root the phone) for any Android with Marshmallow and up!

New MDM will only use proxy, it's been available for a while for Samsung devices (Knox) , they now added all Android running v5+

It is really great, because until now they weren't able to really filter devices that don't have a root solution. (the Android flip-phone was one such.)

Gentech's email about the new Android solution:
