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)

Hi I have the canopy filter on my iPhone which i have learnt is the mb smart filter. The filter is a good filter and works pretty well. The only issue I have is that I want to use my Apple Music account but I donít want any album images to be shown. Does anyone know how to accomplish this or a different filter that is as good as canopy/mb smart but can also do this feature?

Anybody familiar with this filter https://www.purifeye.net/#

Seems much cheaper than Gentech. How does it compare

Are there any kosher browser apps, so that you can block safari / chrome and use instead? Not a filter on the iphone itself

Did you try contacting the filter company?

Their website doesn't mention anything about skin-tone blocking, which makes this one seem a bit bare bones if you ask me (so is the price...)

This is not 100% across the board for ALL filters, but in general, you get what you pay for.
(Usually,) the better filters have much better and quicker tech support.

What are the diferences between Techloq and Gentech? For Windows PC, and for /android?
(I just noticed Techloq offers Android filtering)

The difference is that they use a different system, and different support team. They both are trying to do about the same thing.

Which one is better is not an objective thing, everyone will have their own opinions and experiences.

IME Techloq was better performing, very quick Block Page request handling, and decent support.

This filter thing is very confusing. Some use "PROXY" others use "VPN". Which one has less of a slow down effect on the device?

Dear Fellow Community Member,

As you rely on TAG to provide you only with the most secure and efficient filters, we wish to inform you that iOS restrictions, once a reliable and free option for iPhones and iPads, have become increasingly problematic. The security and effectiveness of these restrictions have significantly declined.

For example, over the past few years, there have been multiple instances where Apple updates completely removed these restrictions, leaving many devices unfiltered and vulnerable.
Additionally, Appleís restrictions lack the capability for specific filtering, such as the removal of images in Google Maps and cannot block content in various apps, such as media in WhatsApp Channels.
We are therefore pleased to inform you that there is an excellent, inexpensive alternative available: MB Smart (at $2.50 monthly).

MB Smart offers a filtering solution that mimics Apple restrictions without the loopholes and provides enhanced security and filtering features including remote support. The company has developed and is constantly upgrading this filter to specifically meet your needs.

Please note: due to the above considerations, going forward we will no longer be doing any new iOS restriction installations.

For current customers with iOS Restrictions, we strongly encourage you to switch to MB Smart for a more secure and reliable filtering experience at this time. In addition to enhanced protection, you will save yourself the need to come to the office to update or add apps.

For more details and specifics, please consult your TAG Technician.

P. S. In the near future we will be phasing out Apple restrictions on existing devices as well. A separate notice will be forthcoming about this soon.

How does it compare with gentech for android?i.e. speed of customer support, speed of device, customizability of filter etc.

There is no customer support for MB Smart like with Gentech, you gotta call in to a local Tag office rep to take care. Though updating any app and installing certain approved apps you can do all yourself, so there is much less need to contact support in the first place.

MB smart I think they wanted like $50 a year.  Or something to that. Don't remember exactly. It's not a filter so not sure why it's not a one time fee to install.

Hmm. Wonder if it works for anyone here without a filter. Or a generic error.

$30 per year. Perhaps that's Tag's charge since they service that.

Same for me with Techloq. You can try emailing them they can usually fix these type of issues
