Having switched on the parent controls to a setting of Moderate to block nudity and pornography, it does not seem to be working, as my wife found out to her horror with my children at the weekend. My wife searched for general terms and got unfiltered adult results.
I've called through to Broadband support and they can't fix my service to provide the controls. When I log in to the bt website it shows the controls set to Moderate, but when I try and change it to Strict I get an error message.
Could someone please look into this??
BT Parental Controls doesn't inspect content returned from a site, it looks at the URL and the category it has been assigned too. Sites such as Google are defined as 'Search Engines' and are not blocked by BT Parental Controls. There are three options for you to help this:
Create a personalised filter level and block the 'Search Engines' category. You could then add one particular search engine to your allowed list
I think the real issue here is 'Parental Control'. Too few parents exercise it. It's not someone else's duty to police what your kids do online but yours, the parent. There is mountains of information available online regards filtering content. In reality the buck stops with the parent.
