Parental control


Can anybody tell me how to set up parental controls on my son's playbook. He is 15 and has started to access inappropriate website content on his playbook. I need to be able to turn off content for 18+. Is this possible on playbook and if so how do I do it?

Re: Parental control

Even if there was any parental software for playbook, which there isnt, there are no non-admin user accounts so he  can disable any settings you put in. .Even if you changed the dns to opendns the user can put any dns back into settings. Having your internet provider block pron will only be of use at home. This is a mobile device. 


Education and trust is the only way forward with this device. Just tell the kids it's entertainment not real, like vampire movies or election promises.
