How can I block youtube

Hi,

 

I am trying to prevent Youtube being accessible on my home network. I don't use & can live without it, and, I want to enforce my children's rules for their children, ie my grandchildren.

 

I have tried to block it in the Telstra Gateway using Parental Control - it doesn't appear to want to work, ie it won't block it.

 

Help! Please.

Try blocking it using Telstra Broadband Protect, it is included for most offers in the last few years. http://tel.st/tbp

Thanks DrQ, I managed to do it using the (Telstra) Home Dashboard app! It was so simple after the frustration of trying to get the NBN Router (Telstra) to accept and utilise it.

Your alternative solution will be remembered - I probably have Product as part of my Plan!?

Cheers, Rusty44

@Rusty44 You know, if the kids are smart (And they usually are) they can get around the block via a VPN.

Mmmmm... hot pineapple donut and a coffee!

Yep, Ozmoz, they can but they have to be able to load it if they're in my network. I also use Norton Family and get reports.
