    Parental Control Software -- recommendations?


    I am looking for a good, standalone app or service that can do effective content filtering.
    I will tell you what I have tried, and their limitations.
    K-9 is good, I like it, but it can't scan inside of secure connections.
    OpenDNS FamilyShield only blocks certain sites and domains, it doesn't scan inside the site.
    Microsoft Family cannot monitor activity on Google Chrome.
    Norton Family is good, I like it, but it can't monitor activity on Edge, and it conflicts with some security softwares.
    I am presently using all 4, but I would like to replace Norton, because of software conflicts, and it is the only one I know that can scan HTTPS connections in Google Chrome.
    Any ideas?

    You might try Adguard Family DNS, it seems to block a little more.

    DNS blocks loading banners and downloads even from within the webpage, SSL included of course.
