It is not TP-Link fault that Apple "geniuses" introduced MAC address randomization, but now with Android joining the same trend, having whitelist is really pressing matter for those who need MAC address filtering on their home networks. Which includes parental controls and even basic blacklisting.

How can one of the main features (great parental control) of the Deco series still remain so useless over all this time? Tech is changing all the time, it would be great if tp-link would follow these trends instead of pushing customers away towards other vendors...

Come on tp-link, enough is enough.

 

The lack of a default profile (which can be the most restrictive) or of an approval process for new devices joining the wi-fi network means that parental control is essentially useless.

 

Please, where is the update that will provide this desperately needed functionality?

It's been over 2 years since this thread has been created and more and more devices are using mac randomization nowadays. 

 

Parental control has become useless. Still no word from tplink...

 

Such a waste of a potentially good product.

Hi,

It is unbelievable that such an easy and useful feature has not been implemented yet !

i definitely will not recommend the purchase of a Deco to anyone until it provides the whitelist filtering option.

@Alexandre. 
 

Windows 10 has this feature too. 
 

Tp Link is still sleeping over it for more than 2 years. This is unacceptable.

2 years: no resolution, no recommendation, no workaround.

 

Parental control is useless now sad

 

I'm going to update my Amazon review to 1 star and mention about this thread and how company ignores own customers.

i will update review once it is fixed (unless I switch to a competitor's product)

I'm sad that I recommended this device to my sister before this massive feature flaw was apparent. TP-Link don't seem to care in the slightest.
