It works. You must turn it on first.
on March 7, 2012
After reading the reviews on this app., I noticed a distinct split in the ratings. Either a 5* or a 1*, nothing in between. I opted to try this app. as it's for a Kindle we bought our teenage child as a gift, as we wanted some extra protecting from the web., other than passcoding the wifi access. When I first used the app., it blocked nothing, and I thought "well there's a waste of money." However, after playing with it awhile it works perfectly. Now with that said, you MUST ENABLE the "BLOCKING" on the very first option. On the first 'button' on the list, there is either a choice between "Monitoring" or "Blocking". It comes set to default as "Monitoring". This monitoring default does Nothing for blocking content. Switching it to "blocking" changed everything.. It even stopped searches in search engines for adult content. Not bad at all. I believe, some if not all previous 1* reviewers did not change the first button from "monitor" to "Blocking", therefore it seemed as it did not work. With that said, never trust an app for 100% protection. It's just a tool, not a substitute for protection of your child from content on the web. Again, the app., (so far) has blocked all adult content I've tested on it.. 5 Stars!
