One thing I noticed about youtube forced restricted mode is that it is more strict than the option available in youtube’s app. My daughter had few videos in her favorites which can be played with the restricted mode being activated from the app. But when I enabled the restricted mode on the router level, those videos are no longer available. Even search results have become very strict showing only kids stuff. Is there a way to force the strict mode to the same level available in the app? I hope it is clear.
Yes, YouTube Restricted Mode enforced at the network level is more restrictive than that at the browser or app level. That’s how Google had it. At present you’ll have to rely on the browser or app setting if the network-wide setting is too restrictive (even though it can be easily bypassed by the knowledgeable kid). We don’t have a perfect solution at the moment but will explore ways to fix this if Google won’t sync up their solutions.
I just bought the pcwrt router and it says that the firmware is up to date. However, I am not seeing a moderate restricted mode. Also, is there a way to set youtube to restricted mode on a schedule in the calendar setting.
