I have a Netgear R7000. I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 Active Phone & an Ipad 2 that I want to use to manage Parental Controls. i have downloaed the Netgear Genie App on both my devices and set the controls to Moderate. I clicked the "Change Custom Settings" space and it took me to a OpenDNS website. I created the account & have logged in. I created 2 Pass Through Accounts for my husband & myself. At the top, I clicked Account Settings & found where I could block Youtube. I first typed www.youtube.com and it said the domain was not found. So I logged into Youtube & copied and pasted from the web browser. There were other http letters involved, so I guess its different. From what I understand, if my husband and I do not want to be restricted, we must be logged in to the Netgear Genie App or maybe its the DNS Server? I don't know which,....but I wanted to test being blocked, so I logged out of everything & closed everything out on my Ipad. I then hit the Youtube App.....and it allowed me to go right to Youtube! But then if I was in Safari and typed in www.youtube.com , then it works! I will get a message saying the Site has been blocked by DNS. So....what I want to know is how to make it work when the Youtube is accessed by an App on Iphones or Androids or Ipads? Also, can someone tell me which it is that I need to be logged into for the bypass account to work for my husband and I? Lastly, I read somewhere.....that none of these restrictions matter with Google. If my teen wants to type in Porn on Google search, it could still pop up because Google ignores all the parental controls and restrictions. My son is way more knowledgable about computers than I am and maybe he already knows this, ~ I don't know. I'm glad he says he likes Bing better. But going into Google settings to check a box for safe searching isn't going to last long when he finds out he can uncheck the box. Is there anything that can be done to restrict Google?
