    Ensure that you do not attempt to use OpenDNS Home too, in parallel to Netgear LPC.  These services are incompatible.

    Else staff must check your account.  Open a support ticket, link "Submit a request" above.

    Rotblitz,

    Can you please explain what you mean by using OpenDNS Home with Netgear LPC?  I think that may be my problem also because when I open the netgear genie desktop software and cliick on the netgear genie bypass account, it says "no bypass account information is found.  Go to status screen, and click change custom settings to add a bypass account first."  Of course, I have already added the bypass account online.  When I follow the instructions, and click on "changed custom settings" it takes me online to netgear.opendns. . . and shows me the bypass account.  Yet, I am unable to access some sites that I need to access such as email for yahoo.  I have the filtering level for the bypass account set to "low."  I have a Nighthawk R7800.

    Rotblitz, to answer your question. I am using the Netgear Genie to help control what can be searched for or work on my network. I used links in that to set up the bypass account. I have found that the only way to allow content I need I have to disable the parental controls or use my Tor browser. Will add more later as I have to run out of town.

    "by using OpenDNS Home with Netgear LPC?"

    This is not what I said.  Instead I meant to say that the two services, Netgear LPC and OpenDNS Home, are incompatible, and that you cannot use both at the same time, but either the one or the other.
    Especially, ensure that you have no network defined at https://dashboard.opendns.com/settings/
    Your LPC dashboard is only at https://netgear.opendns.com/

    According to the error messages you get, I think your account must be checked.  Open a support ticket, link "Submit a request" above.  I as user cannot check your account, only staff can.

    As I said, open a support ticket.  I as user cannot check your account.
