Parental Controls not working

Go to solution
Apologies, for posting a question asked many times but I'm running out of options...

I've been trying to set up BT Parental Controls for a long time now, but can't seem to get it to work.

Whenever I try to switch on parental controls I get "Sorry, we couldn't turn on your BT Parental Controls, please try again later". I've been trying on and off for several months now and I've been in touch with BT by phone several times but they haven't been able to resolve the problem I'm afraid.

I know the Moderators have been very helpful with this problem via the forums in the past and I was hoping someone could help me.

Many thanks in advance for any help.

Sarah.

I have asked a moderator to provide assistance, they will post an invite on this thread.
They are the only BT employees on this forum, and are based in the UK.

@Sarahjanethomp Thanks for sending in your details, I've raised this with a specialist team as I can see that all the things I could  have tried have already been done. It will take a few days before I have an update but as soon as I have any news I'll be back in touch.

Hi @Sarahjanethomp  Thanks for your patience whilst this is being investigated, the faults team have identified and fixed another issue. Can you try setting the controls up again and let me know if it works now?
