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.

Haha... didn't mean to put off anyone, but TBH that is not the answer to what the asker was asking, so why distract?

He asked if there is anything free, and there certainly is a possibility that there is something there free, he should'nd be made fun of. But indeed my response was to the wrong post (I meant the one starting this with the rhetorical "Is kosher meat free? For kosher food we spend double but for Kosher eyes neh waste of money?")
Btw I`m also part of TAG
And for your answer on Apple restrictions: most people don`t know how to install it properly and you could take it off in the click of a button (yes even if your wife/friend has your code) And yes we did enough yeshiva runs in TAG and showed the buchrim that their filter was taken off with one click.
Gentech has created a free program which blocks all internet (thats not a filter thats a block) Or you could install Gentech paid version which also works thru restrictions but allows you to choose what you want. In short words there isin`t a good free filter out there that works for anyone with more then one cent brains because most free products he could uninstall himself while there is such a thing as a free block all thru TAG which was provided by some nice filtering company`s who understood the problem and aren`t here only to make money (Techloq/Gentech)

There is still one way to do it by signing up for a new apple account Thru your friends Email address and he should have all your codes.... Which then the phone is filtered 75% with restrictions on and almost impossible to live with....

Again there is some times that you could have restrictions on as a good filter thru TAG (I keep on refering to TAG because most people don`t know what they are doing, when doing it themselfs) but the second you need a drop more it needs to be paid version.

Three points I want to make:
1. TAG IS A FREE ORGANIZATION All of our services are free of charge.
The expenses of the office are supported by donations. (The filter companies charge for their filtering) And all our workers are volunteers

2. maybe you aren`t a WIZ but your child IS twice as smart (phones are addictive kids love it)

3. אין חכם כבעל הנסיון there are enough people who came in crying when it was to late already

ALL of the above staments was refering to TAG ISRAEL while other offices might have different rules

Any recommendations and how does it work?
Depends on which device
Apple: Gentech paid version and choose the websites you need on
Android: Netspark paid version and choose the websites you need on
a whitelist filter takes some time to install because you need to put in each site separate
if you need it on a computer the best is Techloq
This is my personal opnion based on the feedback I heard

I am trying to decide which filter to use, any help would be appreciated.
Do some filters have more categories that you can decide on, more then other filters?
Do I have to send in a form to change my preferences, or I can simply toggle on and off which categories I want, and turn it on and off as needed like k9? Do all filters make my internet connection go through their servers? Which ones slow down your internet the least?
You could take your answer from the above answer or say which type of device? And we could try to help!
BTW, I'm part of TAG.
I Vouch for @ziv716 I know who he is and what he does in TAG great TECH EXPERT

I have gentech and overall I'm happy. One issue they haven't been able to solve for me, I get the following message when trying to access flyertalk
Quote from: flyertalk
Error 1005 Ray ID: 55fe1c618defe6d0 2020-02-04 16:44:43 UTC

What happened?

this seems to be flyertalk blocking and not Gentech.
Any solutions besides switching filters?

Why not have Gentech exclude FlyerTalk completely (not only that it shouldn't be filtered but it shouldn't go through their network at all)?

In general some websites don`t allow access from outside USA (Office Depot, Rite Aid, Shoprite) flyertalk.com does allow outside U.S. but they might block certain types of IP Address.
Are you using a different program whats scrambling? If you don`t most times Gentech could help 718-436-8324 +442034686155 or try support@gentechsolution.com

I don't think it's a USA issue. The only website I have issues with is flyertalk. It's the only one they haven't been able to solve.

The issue is very simple, they are blocking traffic from data centers etc (https://www.choopa.com/ in this case) since this is not normally a place where a "user" is browsing the internet from.

In this case, since all your traffic goes through GenTech which is running in a data center they are blocking it.

I can't have solutions... it is for GenTech to have... but as said I believe they should be able to exclude the site COMPLETLY that it shouldn't even come from their IP.

Correct. The issue seems to be a proxy detection.
They should be able to exclude all traffic going to those sites from their servers which should solve the issue.

If they are all in a certain category, then perhaps you need to allow that category.
Hmmm, they are from several different categories.

Read through 10 pages, but have another 140 to go...
 but can some explain why netspark is $70 from TAG while gentech is $140?
 Is the only difference gray scaled images?

 For a Samsung S9 and Moto X4, which one would be better?

 Is netspark good or wishy washy and that's why it's half price, as well since I had never installed a filter on my device would I still be able to watch how to videos on YouTube and some music from weddings and the like?
 As well as the forums and shopping online? Amazon eBay, clothing sites...
 Assuming all those are accessible?

 Thanks guys.

 And for my laptop's and windows computer I see you guys recommend Techloq?

And info in the wiki is still up to date?
 A site like https://blog.truple.io/2019/11/06/free-android-porn-filter.html is? Anything of value or pay for a filter from TAG?

We at TAG specialize in getting the best filter setup in the best way for your needs.

Netspark is great. Each filter has its strong points and weak points.

The answer to the rest of your questions is yes.
