Parental Controls/Blocked sites not working

Model: Archer A7
Hardware Version: V5
Firmware Version: 1.0.7

Parental Controls/Blocked sites does not work as advertised.  I have several devices that have been added to Parental controls and websites that have been blocked and when I try and access the site from one of the devices it connects with no problem.  I've tried using both the website and the keyword and neither approach is working.  Is this feature functional or is there something else that needs to be done?

The content filtered should be according to the keywords entered so if you were to add Facebook, that should block access. If the router is not blocking any site I would start by updating the firmware to 1.1.0 (https://www.tp-link.com/us/support/faq/2139/). Then deleting and reconfiguring the parental control settings (https://www.tp-link.com/us/support/faq/1531/). 

 

If nothing is still is being filtered, I would reach out to our support team.
