I tried another filter, OpenDNS, but was unhappy with the filtering. It seriously did a horrible job compared to CleanBrowsing, which also forces safe search mode, etc. So, I tried again. The exact same thing happened. It worked great for about a day and a half, then the internet just wouldn’t work on any of our devices anymore. 🙁 I am wondering if getting a 2nd router to hook up to the first one may help with this issue, like it talks about in this article https://cleanbrowsing.org/articles/my-router-does-not-allow-dns-changes. Does anyone know if this sounds like a solution to this problem?
Also, does anyone know if there is good customer service/support for paid filters?
Do you know of another good option for this? I really loved the sound of this DNS filter and was hoping it would work for us. We’re looking for something to filter all of the inappropriate websites, plus blocking the proxies (so that we cannot get around the filter, as far as I can understand it?), etc. that the family filter from CleanBrowsing.org offers. We’re willing to pay for it if there are even paid options out there. I was going to sign up for one of CleanBrowsing paid filters to see if that would eliminate the blips in service we were getting before the internet just stopped working altogether. :/ I am really new to all of this.
