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'd like to ask a sincere question. If it's deemed inappropriate, I ask one of the moderators to delete it.

What does a woman shopping (for specific items) do with these filters or is she forced to go to a store?

As per the response from gentech, all data gets purged after 48 hours. If you are signed up to the filter via an organization or reseller due example Tag or your community then they have access to that info into it gets deleted.

Techloq is under Gdpr rules.
Thank you.

What is the issue?

Most product pictures are quite recognizable with the skin blocked, but if needed you can unblock a site completely.

I was under the impression that certain pictures are never allowed.

It's not on a picture and picture basis, it's a site to site basis.

(Of course if you're under a specific community it'll depend on their guidelines if you can unblock the skin color filter on that site.)

1 - Nativ has picture by picture basis (right-click picture & enter password). A shame the others don't (according to what you're telling me).
2 - Techloq also has specific communities?

the answer is yes,
To clarify: Most filters work with community’s including Techloq for example Tag. But as a point even in Tag every location has different rules placed on certain sites. Tag even has a messaging channel with the filters they work with so they could work side by side as for your question about certain women’s clothes you will have to request this site to be opened without image filtering (Techloq )

I compiled a list of thousands of apps, if they have backdoor access to internet, and how/if that can be stopped. I am thinking of making a business out of it, so I don't really want to share the list, and definitely not publicly. But I have no problem helping a fellow Jew out. As to your questions - factory reset itself doesn't take long, but it wipes all data on phone. Waze - has some known loopholes, which can be blocked if you have rooted phone. Email app- depends on what model your phone is, the stock email app varies by phone model, and some are good and some aren't. Mapmywalk- I'll have to check out our, as I didn't test it yet. Banking- also varies by bank. Capitalone is one that is OK, and other banks- some do and some don't. Hope this helps, feel free to ask more.
Is this how KosherOS started out? ;)

Just to clarify Gentech is a very good product. Service is great, but in comparison to Techloq it`s not worth it
Techloq has:
Highest average response rate, with most times under two minutes
Image filtering, if wanted you could even request only on specific category's or none
Easy installation and changes...
A team of reps around the world most times in the day 
Priced cheaper then Gentech

Gentech has:
Very good product
The highest price on average Windows filter
Great Tech support, But it takes more time....

My personal experience on my computer was great never had any BUGS, but now with Techloq nothing to compare
 
Based on the above I would love to cancel Gentech and get Techloq instead. but my membership just renewed in December and  charged me for a full year. Is there any way to get a (partial) refund?

Try your luck but I can`t tell you because I only work for Tag not Gentech.... (I do put on filters for both but don`t get paid from anyone)
Definitely can't hurt to PUTPAC.
Pick up the phone and call
if you don`t know what it means

Someone I know had some questions to ask of Nativ USA, so he called them & left a message but hasn't yet received a call back.
Today he stopped in at their Lakewood office and lo & behold the office was converted into a shoe store!
Does that tell us that they are going out of business?

Do you mean until? So the organization only has access for the 48 hours that Gentech keeps the data?

Heading in that direction, The worst customer service for a filter company. Then guys ask why not Nativ.... only experience could explain

That doesn't sound good, especially coming from you who works for TAG.
