    Hello, I may have answered my own question… it appears that Cleanbrowsing is set to filter at a moderate level.

    <i>If you are using <b>CleanBrowsing</b>, we enforce YouTube’s Restrict-Moderate mode automatically on our Family Filter and you do not have to take any of these steps.</i>

    Is there a way to use Cleanbrowsing to filter at a strict level instead?

    Note that Google Search, Image search, Bing, etc… are all filtering well. It’s just Youtube that we want to be able to set to a more strict level.

    Thanks

    Thanks, but we are using DNS filtering, as you know. How can we alter the level of content filtering that is taking place on our network? I thought your DNS filtered at a strict level, and that was the only option. Or am I mistaken? We are using <b>185.228.168.168</b>. The DNS filter is enabled, as it shows Youtube set to restricted mode, and we cannot change this.

    According to this Google answer, the level of restriction would need to be set by the individual or company who actually owns the DNS server, which would be you. Or am I misunderstanding something here?

    1. Open your network’s DNS settings.
    2. Add a CNAME for the following hostnames:

      To set strict restricted access, set the CNAME value to restrict.youtube.com.

      To set moderate restricted access, set the CNAME value to restrictmoderate.youtube.com.

    Interesting, it seems to be working now.

    Thank you!
