    we are using dns to block adult sites on router level. It works well for  a lot of websites, thank you for that. But there still unsuitable sites which go through the filters. We report them through your recategorise form, but after a few days they are still unblocked. Can you tell how this form works? Who decides what to block and how long does it take to activate?
    Especially sites with ‘mixed’ context are a problem, for instance. But also something more straightforward as and its forum can still be accessed, which in my opinion are unsuited for under 18’s. Thanks in advance for your time and advice.

    This domain will be properly fixed so it will be categorized as Arts and Fashion, Photography, and Mixed Adult:

    It has images that contain some nudity and sexual content, and it’s not for children under 13. Parental discretion is advised. Thank you so much for this concern, and keep your devices clean and safe!

    Hi there,

    thanks for your reply. The url above is still ‘alive’ on family filter here:

    As are and

    And could you please shed some light on your policies on mixed content sites which also seem to pass through your family filter? I submitted a lot of entertainment and photography sites through your ‘recategorise’ tool, which have adult/sex/relationship advice sections which are still not blocked but contain 18+ material.  like this one  for example Thanks for your work.

    thank you for your reply. Unfortunately the site mentioned above can still be opened despite familyfilter. The same goes for and Also other sites with mixed sexual and adult content pass this family filter. I tried to recategorise them with your website tool, but after two weeks they are still not blocked. Here is an example Thanks for your work.

    Yeah, I get you, flipflop. But I don’t see them blocking something like Flair or the gazillion websites classified as “photography” (, to name one, has similar content). I mean, Twitter, Facebook and other social media platforms have images/videos/posts a thousand times stronger (and perfectly easy to access)… They don’t block that. They blocked Reddit, though.

    Search engines (and general video and tech websites) could be a much bigger issue, I think. Young people look up information on how to circumvent different types of restrictions (they have become really crafty at that) or simply go to a search engine that doesn’t offer any “safe search” filtering (the vast majority of them) and search for inappropriate content.

    I guess the only way to solve this is to only allow “whitelisted” pages, using the paid service, or to block locally using something like the hosts file on Windows.

    Still, Clean Browsing is WAY better than the competition. 🙂
