For iPhone/iPad/iOs
Check out their quite easy and powerful content restrictions.
Suggestion: Have someone else have the password (or half and half with a spouse) and do the following:
Lock installing apps + remove browser + add apps you need (possible rules: no games, no sports, no entertainment, etc.).
[Occasionally an app will have a built in browser/or need to access a certain website - just go back in to settings (with password) and add that website].
There is time restrictions and more features too.
(May not be enough for teenagers - consult your own advisers - this solution sure beats doing nothing and there is no excuse)

Ha, give me any iPhone and I can find you the restrictions code in as much time as it takes to back up the phone to my computer.
Not if the backup is done using the encrypted option  and the iPhone is password protected so you canít back it up without the parents permission.

True but you can always jailbreak it.

There is a new filter company coming in to the market, techloq.com, for windows computers,
I've been using it for the past month or so, didn't have any no internet connection or for no reason blockages.
I think this might solution for someone who wants to use his computer to work as well...

Since I updated to iOS 12, my iPhone se will often rapidly drain batter power by the minute- it will go from over 50% battery power to close to zero in around 15 minutes just using safari unless I put it in low power mode. Something definitely messed up about iOS 12

Can tag remove the browser completely from an iPhone also? Or just from a Droid?

I would assume any ubiquity router would let you change the DNS settings
