For iPhone/iPad/iOs
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)

Pricing info may not be accurate and is only on full filters (not email only), feel free to correct, and does not include installation costs. I am working on a comprehensive comparison list

I have Techloq with different filtering levels for different users tied to their windows login.
Do you happen to know if it's possible to add a second user to techloq and have that user's internet blocked completely? I can't find that info on techloq's website without actually purchasing the user.
Thanks!
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

You can make 2 users and have a custom profile for each so presumably you can change whatever options you want for that user.

100%, but a block plan is free so you don't need to purchase anything. Simply contact Techloq - call or use the contact form on their site or even just email - and they will add a block plan to your account with an install code for the computer it will be on.

That's what I was hoping for! So a block plan can coexist for another user on a computer where one user has the regular plan?

Slow down. You meant two users on the same computer? That you probably will have to pay for. I guess ask them directly.

I'm getting a Chromebook for my child for schoolwork. What are the best filtering options? If the Google account we set up for her is a children's account, will the parental controls enable us to fully control what and when she has access to?

Qustodio works better than Google’s family link in my experience

it covers both the browser through an extension and the Android system as an app and also installs as a VPN to prevent anything from getting through that you don't want.It can block or alert certain categories with the option to blacklist or whitelist any app or site. It does not require a child google account

In my opinion its always better to get a paid for filter then a free one. The paid ones are much more reliable.

Intuitively, that feels true to me too, though there are plenty of free antivirus progams (for instance) that are far better than most paid programs, especially when they are from cmpanies like Microsoft and Google. I'm just wondering if there are shortcomings to Google's controls that you could point to specifically.

Nope, i dont know anything about googles filters. It's just a general rule.
Is there any reason you don't want to use the same filter that you use for your child?

what options if any are there to prevent receiving and making calls to 1800 numbers that are adult content?
It appears us mobile home service and Tello cell service dont have any block for this  any other options?

Even talk or talk/text only plans seem potentially problematic

Look into https://www.connekttoday.com/
maybe they have that option. Other than that, doubt there are any other carriers that have a block like that
