    Hello, Thanks for the detailed explanation. I've a question about Family --> Safe Search. I'm having Firewalla Gold, Enabled Family protect with Safe Search against platforms Youtube, Google, Bing, DuckDuckGo. What i see is, on Mobile and iPads I see that this is forcing safe/restricted search on Bing and Youtube comments are automatically taken out with a banner `Restricted mode has hidden comments for this Video` which is awesome. But on my MacBookPro i could still see Youtube Comments and can set Bing search engine --> Safe search to Off {This is not possible on iPhone, iPad}. Could you please let me know what specific setting to be enabled for this feature to be seamless across? I am planning to buy a MacBookPro for my kid (10 Yr Old) and planning to use this feature with VPN for in/out side of home network.

    -Thanks. Sriram

    Try a different browser on your MAC and see if it will make a difference, some browsers may use DoH (DNS over HTTPS) which may bypass controls.  Next, also check if your MacBook Pro has mac randomization on, if it is, then make sure you place the right device safe search

    This was a mistake from my end. my Office VPN was turned on and that has caused this issue. I forgot about VPN being on and tested this feature earlier. Thanks for checking. A follow up question:

    Could you plz recommend a VPN service which can be injected as profile and not as an App on Phone/Laptop for kids not being able to remove or turn off when they are away.
