Actually I have 2 problems. I've set up LPC and seems to be working with the family Mac, the kids xbox, iPhones, iPads. Well as far as I can tell it's working but not sure my (11 to 13 years) kids would tell me if one of their devices were not blocked when it should be. Where it is definitely not working is on my iPhone and my wife's iPhone. The worst problem is on my wife's iPhone. I have set things up to block almost everything by default at kids homework time and at bedtime. I've set up bypass accounts for myself and my wife so we don't get restricted. On my wife's iPhone the bypass does not work. I open netgear genie on iPhone, log in to the bypass account and hey presto... Facebook is still blocked (and I'm in trouble). Tried waiting for a while but no Facebook still after 10 minutes. I did notice that the first time you log in it displays a connecting pop up with cancel button. This disappears after a couple of seconds and then comes back again. It then stays. If I cancel it and try again it pops up and disappears again after a couple of seconds. On the 2nd attempt it does not pop up again. The second problem is on my iPhone. I have full access all the time even without logging in to a bypass account. Now this is actually what I want on my iPhone but now I don't really trust that the blocking will really work for my kids devices. My wife has an iPhone 4 with iOS 7. I have an iPhone 5 with iOS 7.
