PROBLEMS WITH PARENTAL CONTROLS

We have been having problems with parental controls for the past few days.  We upgraded from a BT hub 5 to a BT smart hub 6 and since then the parental controls don't seem to be working, not sure it this is just a coincidence.  They were working fine before.  We have gone from no sites being blocked even though the filter level was set at light, to now nearly all sites being blocked as it says we have strict filter level on but according to our account it is on moderate.  Everytime I try to change the filter level to light it displays an error message and reverts back to moderate.  I have tried turning parental controls off altogether etc, rebooted the hub but nothing seems to work.  We have been on live chat but no use.  Can anyone help?

Re: PROBLEMS WITH PARENTAL CONTROLS

Hi @Steve_Jo,

 

Can you take a look at this page Parental Control Problems?

 

If that doesn't help you, we'll need to look into it for you. You can reach us by clicking on my user name and then on contact the mods.

 

Thanks

I haven't had any more communication regarding this.  How long is it likely to take?

Re: PROBLEMS WITH PARENTAL CONTROLS

Under ideal conditions, the moderators can normally deal within 48 hours, but they are running a bit behind at the moment as they are only a small team based in the UK. They will however take full ownership until any issues are resolved. They are a very good team.

Hi Daniel, I'm not sure if it was you that I spoke to earlier but I haven't had a call from the parental controls team that was expected tonight.  This is becoming very frustrating as we are unable to access most websites.

Have you still got the Hub5, if so re-connect it and see if that is ok.
