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)

There is a big difference between the suggestions that you get on youtube when a video finishes and 613tube. On youtube, you get suggestions from random channels. On 613tube, I tested it and you only get suggestions from that specific channel, so it's significantly better than youtube.

Sorry for the off topic, but I must ask you this.  How in the world did you end up saving a screenshot in a PDF?  I'm normally amused when people send it in a Word document, but a PDF.. that's a first.

It saved as a PNG that was 1.2 MB. It didn't allow me to upload here, I got a msg Attachments here are limited to something like 582KB, so I converted to PDF and uploaded

True, but I had a converter opened in another tab already so that was easiest option for me at that point.

So, I finally threw out my K9. I put some parental restrictions on my router, is there a consensus on the filter with the least issues?

Just found another cool thing about Techloq.
You can have different filters for diffrent times of the day. For example you can from 9- 11 you have a filter for only email and then from 11- 2 open everything etc....

Why'd you get rid of K9?  Router-level filter does *not* replace what K9 was doing..

For starters the filtering categories on K9 keep on changing.

Of course not. That's why I'm asking here. But k9 is no longer supported, and is also no longer approved by my kids school :)

I personally dont have, but I have heard nothing but rave reviews about Techloq. Expensive, but everyone says worth the price.
I'm not who you think I am.

big fan of Techloq as well.
They respond so quickly to emails with questions/unblock requests
