I have been looking for a good and simple solution to ensure my kids use their iphones, ipads etc. safely while connected to our home network. I had played with Squid Cache a few times but found the management of blacklist a little too manual for my liking.
A little research lead me to check out OpenDNS. Although is cost a small amount per annum, the set up and config was very easy. I just had to set the DNS records on the kids devices and then use the dashboard on their site to manage blacklist and to review blocked sites etc.
The good news is that this has been working perfectly, AND the kids have not been busted for going to any site that they shouldn’t!
