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)

How does an SD card slot enable unfiltered internet?
A friend can have stuff preloaded onto it that you dont want your kid having.

A lot of talk about filters and wifi and protecting our children but what's the point of filters and disabling wifi on devices if the kid just gets a hold a mirco sd card from a "friend" and whole world is open to him? am i missing something

second can one disable sd/mirco-sd slot?
God of the world, when will the pain end?

The trick is (if you're not embarrassed) you've got to one up the "friend". You have to get a SD card that's preloaded and give it to your child. (Obviously if you know for sure that they will purposely watch those things then don't.) Then tell them

חיים והחיים לפניך ובחרת בהחיים

Then only if you want you should daven that they make the right choice.

At least that's what I would do.

But this is exactly what I thought of right away

This is an incredible idea. But there are some things that whoever your admin is you wouldnt want them specifically to see. Not something bad, but something private. Some peoples phone contain literally all the information you'll ever need about them and you don't want someone getting screenshots of everything.
I'm not who you think I am.

I agree with you.  To help with this the app has optional features like text redaction and image blurring.  It also whitelists most banking sites.

For anything containing text, it does a great job blocking ALL text in images.
See attached example image showing a WhatsApp chat, Tapatalk, and Google Maps.

I can think of a few other private things that would be harder to redact, such as video calls, but text redaction handles most items.

I actually didn't even know what the nimshol was.

But anyways it won't work in a group setting it has to be one on one.

How long does it take for this magic to wear off?

IDK it's theoretical I never tried it out.

Just curious what age did you have in mind?
