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)

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

I would assume any ubiquity router would let you change the DNS settings
perhaps. last time i did it with a netgear it was automatic.

it detected the IP and automatically set up the DNS. with the ubiquity, it detects the IP but still doesn't set itself up

To protect my teenage children, I'm looking to filter a Kindle Fire and an iphone5.
We also have a PC using K-9.
What will filter the browser?
K9 isn't worth much...

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.
You can get around restrictions code? I have a friend who's trying to sell his iPhone but TAG lost his code.
I'm not who you think I am.

I just updated my iPhone 6s to the and for some reason the restrictions are off! How does that work? Is this some sort of glitch?
Found out it was a big issue. The newest iOS is TAG approved again I believe.

All K9 is good for is to keep little kids from going to wrong websites accidentally.
iPhone restrictions are good depending on what ios.
You'll spend more money on a filter for the fire than the item is worth. Are you using the fire for more than just games (ie browser)? If not maybe get an app that locks all the apps besides games.

Dunno, had some guy who works with tag here two nights ago and he said that iPhone restrictions are good for new iOS. Not sure exactly what phones (are upgradable) or what iOS is up to.
