Are there only 4-5 filters around? I'm still hoping for a reply for a filter where CS gets back to you, and can discuss the options available. I don't mind the cost at this point, and I do not want Netspark.

Looking for android phones and a laptop.

Thanks again.

For phones if you don't want Netspark there aren't a lot of options, just the three Livigent based filters. For computers the wiki has some other options USANativ, NetSafe Pro, Covenant Eyes.

Thank you very much for posting the options.


Is there a comparison list anywhere for the Livigent based ones?

Not really. Meshimer is probably the most professional (though not sure about response times) in CS and knowledgeabilty. Gentech is much more flexible (YouTube easily opened when embedded on whitelisted sites, and an advanced YouTube filter offered) and in a sense not so strict. Geder is somewhere in between.

Has Gentech tweaked their filters lately? I've been getting a lot more blocked pages than I used to. For instance, the Lakewood scoop was recently blocked because Gentech detected the keyword "stocking". Tonight matzav.com is blocked as an adult website. Really annoying...

Voice to text is probably because the Google app is disabled because it can't be filtered in Android 7.

Figured that's what it was, I'm not familiar with how it works, is there a simple fix or a setting change they can have tag make?

looking to get a new phone.  I want apps, but have no need for a browser. What is the best phone to get where I can easily lock out a browser?
I realize that some apps have built in browsers. If that can be disables, too great.
