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)

Wow, that's crazy! What does Meshimer use, I think Gentech?? So their servers are all over but they're based out of Romania
it wasn't meshimer, it was techloq

Techloq seems to have been having some issues due to the way their infrastructure is set up. They use (or used to use) IBM Cloud and it seems that those IPs were sometimes in the US and sometimes elsewhere (I do not know what's peshat but the fact is that I checked some of their IPs and it showed up in the US and in the Netherlands depending on which site you looked.)

It's interesting that I checked now and it seems that they have switched something around and their current IP isn't showing up as IBM Cloud and it's all in the US. Maybe they listened because of the DoL issues people had.

I can't currently access United award search.
And shows up in icognito as Manchester.

Just a cool DP regarding Techloq.
If you have Image Filtering on/skin tone filter and download a picture from the web the picture will download with the Image Filter.
Its good like if you want to post Trip Reports ( download Pics lets say taken with a Phone to re upload) and  bad if you want to really see the person face.

With NetFree I haven't been having these issues. You can choose which server to connect to...

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

I personally don't recommend either of them because like i said they can easily be removed. I recommend using a real filter.

I meant out of the 2 options which one is better where there is already a filter but you want to add skin tone blocking as well
