parental controls on apple devices

Go to solution

Hi

 

I'd like to set up parental controls on my BT BB account to include Apple devices in the home (iPod Touch, iPhone 4).

 

Is it possible to do this using BT Family Protection, or does this only support laptops and PCs?  Can I configure the home hub or download software that will validate sites accessed through our wireless connection?

 

I'd be very grateful for your advice if you have found a way to restrict content downloaded via BT BB to Apple devices.

 

Thank you

There is no way to do this using the hardware (home hub) that BT supply.

 

You would need to purchase your own router which has a content filtering option.

 

Some also work in conjunction with the free OpenDns service, which supports domain name filtering.

 

See http://countries.netgear.com/lpc for further information on such a service.

Thank you Keith, I really appreciate your advice. Smiley Happy

 

I have worked out how to incorporate safe browsing with restrictions on the devices, so I will pursue this route for now and save the hardware upgrade for a later date.
