BT parental controls cannot be switched on - says unavailable

Long running issue with bt over my parental controls. They cannot be switched on, instead of the switch, all it states is ’unavailable’. It took them 3 months to fix it before. Now it’s happened again and I’m dreading the constant battle over the phone to get it fixed. Googled it and it appears others have had the same problem. Got teenagers in the house so it’s just not acceptable.

Hi @Sheffwolf I called there but missed you, please can you try setting up your parental controls via the manage extras section in MyBT and post back to let me know if they are working?

Hi - they are switched on but they are not blocking the adult content.

My parental controls are still not blocking adult content despite being switched on. I’ve heard nothing for days. Can someone please check my fault is open and get back to me.

Hi @Sheffwolf,

I am sorry that they are still not working correctly for you. @NeilO has been getting this investigated for you. He was in touch with the team on Saturday chasing it for you. He's waiting on their reply. He has scheduled to pick this up again tomorrow when he's in office. He will be in touch.

Thanks

Parental controls are showing switched on but STILL not blocking any adult content.

To be without parental controls for so long without a fix is totally unacceptable. I’ve got teenagers at home.
