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)

I have gentech for my iPhone. One annoying thing is that almost all the apps on my Apple Watch don't work. 

Gentech says they don't support the watch, but given that the watch is an extension of the iPhone and doesn't work without it, so they should be able to make these apps work as well.

I didn`t mock anyone I just put it as a point for people looking thru the thread hopefully people will understand why you need to spend on a filter nothing to do with your question it`s a buildup of questions and future questions what i`m answering (I didn`t qoute it because its not on you)
You might need to spend, but cheaper is not necessarily worse (which is what people are looking for here.) Techloq is cheaper than the Livengent based ones and is actually even better....

Yes and no. The answer was that a real normal filter (not a joke that your child could disable... and in general it is not actually filtering well) costs money.

But as a K9 replacement (and to point out, K9 was indeed also quite a joke) someone somewhere mentioned Kurupira:

If you try it you can tell us how it is.

1 - You mean better than Gentech, Netspark and Nativ?
2 - Can you please elaborate in what way Techloq is better?

Thank you.

Speed, not heavy on the PC resources, simple logical categories and great service.

Blocksi.
It can be tricky to set up, and you need the book to be managed in order to prevent a wipe.

Yes.

I (personally and heard from friends I have recommended it to) found it to be faster (doesn't slow anything on the PC, Nativ definitely does sometimes, and internet speed is also solid), they have faster block page response times, and support is friendly and helpful.

Besides the point that it is much easier to set up (you can install it yourself, and it takes a few minutes) and they are a bit cheaper.

I believe for 2 computers Nativ is cheaper.
Am I making a mistake?

Possible.

The cheaper part was mainly comparing to the Livigent based ones.

Here's a vote for Techloq.
Their response time and customer service is superb.
Would be amazing to have Techloq for android. Gentech doesn't compare :(
