Parental control software recommendations

Hi all,

As above, looking for recommendations for Parental Control software.

Ideally something that works at router level or, failing that, needs to work on both Windows and iOS. Or maybe there is a parental controls equivalent of Pi hole ?

It needs to be able to block sites by category ( as well as domain name ), block sites for all IP/MAC addresses or just particular ones and being able to schedule internet access by IP address would be a bonus(though I think my tp-Link router can do that already).

Have you looked into the built in stuff? I think you can do a fair bit with those.

I hadn't.

I also didn't realise my ISP, BT, did quite a lot of free stuff till it showed up on Google.

I am using that at the moment to see how good it works.
