CleanBrowsing.org DNS 4+
Protecting our families & kids
Designed for iPad
CleanBrowsing is a DNS-based content filtering service that offers a safe way to browse the web without surprises. It intercepts domain requests and filter sites that should be blocked, based on your requirements. Our free family filter, for example, blocks adult content, while still allowing Google, Youtube, Bing, DuckDuckGo and the rest of the web to load safely.
Our free filters are comprised of three predefined filters for global consumption (Security, Adult, and Family). The Family filter blocks adult / obscene content and applies Safe Search filters to Google, Bing, Yandex, etc. The security filter, however, only focuses on restricting access to malicious activity.
Our custom filters give you full control on what should be blocked. You can pick from 14 predefined filters (Adult, Gaming, Gambling, Torrents, Weapons, Social Network, etc), but also make your own rules and block/allow any domains you wish. Custom block pages can also be created on the Pro plans and all the plans allow for network visibility (see which sites are being visited from your network).
Ratings and Reviews
Best mobile filter I’ve found
I like that this forces safe search on search engines because it’s really easy to get around most and see adult images with the right choice of words in a search, even if the url is blocked because you still have the image preview.
However I have Xfinity and am using their router and they prevent changes to the dns addresses for some reason, I guess to be annoying. I got this app to work, though I found the router kept kicking me off the network over and over until I deleted the app. So if you have xFinity and their router, it might not work for you.
Thank you Cleanbrowsing
Unfortunately this App is needed since Apple will not put settings to control DNS behind Restrictions. Cleanbrowsing has responded to a need with a product that is simple to setup. For those complaining about the user being able to turn off the VPN, that would be possible if would Apple put VPN controls behind Restrictions as well. It’s better than nothing. Great option for layering device protection.
Turning off vpn and deleting app too easy
My issue with the app is that it is easily deleted from the iphone without requiring a password. So long as the app in on the phone it works great. However, in a moment of weakness it is far too easy to just delete the app off of the phone. Also, the same can be said for the vpn setting.
Is there someway to require a passcode before changing the vpn settings or being allowed to remove the app? Even having an “ally” receive an email that you have changed the vpn settings or deleted the app would be better than just being able to turn them off or delete the app.
this is very important for those who want to have healthy online practices. It is far too easy to circumvent the software without these measures.
