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)

Anybody using TechLoq for a laptop?
feedback?
Me.

For me it is great. Didn't notice any major slowdowns on the PC (on the internet it obviously wouldn't give me my full gigabit internet speed... but it's fast enough), block page requests are handled quite quickly, and support has been responsive.

Amazing top of line filter. Built for speed and simplicity with lots of customization available for all filtering levels.
As a technician, the only filter that I actually allow on my own personal PC.

In what way(s)? I finally have gentech in a good place (I think). The thought of starting again with a new place and all the new allow requests is daunting.
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

That's entirely up to you. If you are happy with your current configuration, and the performance of the product than stay.

The only annoying thing is constantly requesting access to sites which are instantly opened upon request anyhow. There's gotta be a more efficient way...

Than it is not set up properly for your needs. If you are constantly opening new sites in a specific category, you should consider opening that category entirely.

Also, they have a great skin tone filter that can be turned on or off per category/site. They are also working on a filtered youtube site. Currently they can filter youtube by 30 Categories. (no other filter has such a thing) for example, you can allow just the "How to" videos.
