Website blocked by Parental Controls

Hi there, I have tried to access a website that I use at work and it is blocked due to parental controls.

 

I have added to safe list and waited and this hasnt worked, and I have now turned off parental controls altogether and I still get the blocked message.  Says due to filters on parental control.

 

Can anyone help?

 

The site I am trying to access is easy-hide-ip.com

 

Thanks in advance

Beckers

Any changes you make, can take up to two hours to take effect.

Hi. Welcome to the forums.

 

Is it still a problem, or has the info from Keith given the solution ?

Re: Website blocked by Parental Controls

I'm having exactly the same problem. I've had the parental controls turned off for several days. Have tried different browsers, cleared my cache, reset my router and still I'm being told that sites are blocked by PArental Controls, even though they are turned off. 

It's any site that hides your IP or offers VPn or Proxy services. Anyone would think BT had an ulterior motive.


Utterly unaccepatable.

That site's working fine here, although I am not using BT's DNS servers; I'm using OpenDNS, which may or may not have something to do with it.

Re: Website blocked by Parental Controls

I too am having a similar issue. Morrisons.com is not working on any device and nor does the app work on the iPad. It continually says blocked by parental controls. Reset HH5 and devices as well as cache... No change. Phoned BT, chocolate teapot comes to mind. Just some sort of response would be good.

search at blocked.org.uk reveals that BT is deliberatly blocking easy-hide-ip.com (and that five other UK ISPs are also blocking it).

I signed up to this forum specifically to complain about another website that BT has decided to censor.

 

Good luck getting them to unblock your website.
