Parental control problems

Go to solution
I've just returned back to bt broadband and have been trying to set up parental controls, with no success. Once I click the 'on' button, an error message reads, "there was an error when saving the data". The next red message reads, "Sorry, we coudn't turn on your BT Parental Controls. Please try again later." This has been going on for days. I've contacted live chat and an operator on 0800800150 to no avail. Any help or advice would be appreciated.

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.

Hi @337allan

Welcome to the Community and thanks for your post!

I'm sorry for the problems you're having managing your Parental Controls.  This isn't something the Community is going to be able to help with so you can send us over your details and we'll give you a hand from here.

I have sent you a private message with instructions on how you can send us over your details and we'll look into this for you.

Cheers,

Robbie

Hi @337allan sorry I missed you there. Please get back to me with a suitable time for me to call, I just need to go through a few security questions before I can get this issue progressed further.

Thanks

Hi @337allan  I have just heard back from the team, they have advised you should be able to activate parental controls now. Could you check this and let me know if this worked?
