Parental controls

Plusnet doesn't have any. What do you think?
I don't think I'd have signed up if I knew, I assumed they would.

Re: Parental controls

I use OpenDNS: https://www.opendns.com/home-internet-security/parental-controls/opendns-home/ (amongst other measures).
No need for an ISP provided solution.

Re: Parental controls

This topic has been discussed to death on numerous occasions...

And there must be more of them...
Have a good read as to why many think these should not be provided - be careful that these concepts do not give you a false sense of security... the best protection for your children is your diligence and presence in their internet use.
PlusNet are indeed looking at this space - I await with interest to read the first complaint that they did not filter something that they consider inappropriate or that their child circumvented the controls or that the controls prevent the adults in the house hold accessing whatever they want to access.

Superusers are not staff, but they do have a direct line of communication into the business in order to raise issues, concerns and feedback from the community.
