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

if the other devices use the VPN on the original device then technically it should work (you would have to install the security certificate on each device)

what do you mean by security certificate? If I install vpn on my iOS device i.e (I install ExpressVPN for iOS) it wouldn't work directly ? do I need to install any security certificate with that if yes then what it would be because I never heard or read about that..

since internet filters review secure (https) pages, they need to send them to the end user using their own certificate (not the original) therefore the users must install the certificate to be trusted by the device.

Very interesting. Possibly a great filtering solution for all those people that gave their kids fire tablets to play games on at home.

I am pretty sure you can block the ability for a user to add a network

I would like to filter my user account on a Windows server but I can't install a filter on the server as it is shared. What is the best program that I can install just on my user account for a whitelist (I have admin rights)? I access the server over RDP and I have Gentech installed on my local machine so I don't need content filtering on the server, just a few sites open.

Install truple.io on your local machine and it'll capture the remote session as well. I personally use it like this.

Is there any filter that can filter based on trade? For example; I'm an electrician, is there a filter that will allow stuff that affiliated with electricians and block all the other trash?

If i plan on trading in my iphone by verizon, do i need to bring it to Tag to “unTAG” it before going, or can the Verizon store override the filter?
The only filter it has, is the built in filter and Tag has the password
TIA
