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.

Does K9 still work if already installed?

Can it be reinstalled if uninstalled?

Is it possible to get k9's url lists?
Or does any other filter publish their list?

Had anyone here tried https://accountable2you.com/?

How goes it compare to truple and webchaver?

Does it make sense that Nativ slows down my system considerably?
I have a 7th gen Intel Core i7, 16GB RAM, 256GB NVMe SSD and it takes close to 10 seconds to open file explorer...
Iíve tried reinstalling Windows but no different. The only thing I could think of was Nativ.

Had a friend with Nativ that two weeks ago his computer was basically freezing completely. After a check I found that the Nativ service (I think it is called NWMedia or something similar) was using like 5 GB of RAM the whole time.

He called Nativ and they were able to fix it (maybe an update, but not sure.)

Just a side note about NetFree, You get an X amount of credits each month to use, to have them review a website, it deducts from the credits depending on how important it is to you, and if you use up your credits and you need to send them more requests, you'll have to purchase more credits... IINM

correct. each user receives 16 points per computer (i.e. NetFree connection) per month and NEW site or video requests require the use of at least one point. the average user uses around 5 points per month. tech support or additional help within sites does not require the use of points.

I have gentech on my galaxy s8.
its great. filtered youtube, filtered twitter (lite) and doesnt slow down my phone.
they also has great customer support.

But its a fortune. 140 a yr per device.
 I would love to get it on my pc as well but 140 a yr is a bit much for EACH device....

It doesn't PREVENT uninstalling but it will NOTIFY your partner if you try to uninstall.

A handful of users were requesting the ability to prevent uninstall.  So it's now an optional device setting for android devices (haven't gotten around to adding it to windows yet).

techloq.com is £69.49\year similar to Gentech not very strict and is recommended by TAG (PC only)
NetFree.link is ₪30.00\month (approx $96.00\year) but uses a different approach then Gentech and all sites are 100% kosher without compromise and is recommended by TAG (as of now PC only)

Good. But keep in mind that since they have officially released an uninstaller for it (without need for the password) it is an even easier thing to just remove quickly now.

That was never their strong point. ;)

Ok ill check out techloq. Does it filter youtube and twitter like gentech?
Is their response time similar to gentech?

Can a K9 license be reused multiple times?
