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)

So, it's basically the same ~$100 a year as the others.

In the US and UK correct.

But: You can put it on your network for the same price as putting it on one device...

How? Works with FIOS?

I'm reading their spec sheet and it's not so clear.

As that sheet states it is only for those in Israel. Those outside Israel need to install it on their device - including routers...

Any router that supports VPN (Most do) can be used. I use it and it works great.

See 1.200.ovh and https://netfree.link/wiki/NetFree_VPN

Since they're latest update I've had several issues.
-Not receiving notifications when connected to wifi

- websites that have been previously allowed, suddenly get blocked.

-required vpn to be activated in order for to download media in whatsapp , but doesn't always work.

**These are issues that I have personally.  Not necessarily are these for everyone using gentech**

I don't think there are any good filters that'll not have problems like that. Maybe when techloq makes an android/apple version.

Are there any routers/modems with built in (adequate) filtering capabilities?

Depending what your YouTube filtering is set at, you can possibly allow them to approve just the youtube url of the debate.

Prob also can watch it from apps like CNN FOX etc.
