    Though the mail we receive says that we just subscribed to the “free plan”, in fact we get 6 months of Safe@Home plan. So it’s 9.975USD worth ;) and sufficient to make more than a test (15 days may not be enough, especially before summer holidays…)

    You can see it at the top of the home page, once logged.

    Here is the email sent, though it’s really Safe@Home that you get:

    Dear User,

    Thank you for registration in SafeDNS web filtering service!

    You have registered on Free plan with limited functionality. We allow to use our service on Free plan for unlimited amount of time only if you do it at home.

    In case you need a web filter for organization (whatever type of your organization is) you should purchase the service on an appropriate plan within 30 days from the date of your SafeDNS registration.

    To learn more about our Free plan go to page.

    To start using SafeDNS service you are to go to the personal dashboard and choose the mode of web filtering deployment.

    In the dashboard you can download SafeDNS Agent. It will automatically configure the filtering on the computer so that you can easily manage the service. For instructions on how to manually configure the web filtering on specific routers, for particular OSes and corporate networks go to guides.

    After that, in your dashboard you can fine tune the filtering by choosing the categories of websites you would like to block or allow according to your preferences. And, finally, welcome to safer internet with SafeDNS!

    If you have trouble configuring or using the service, please contact our Support.
    Best regards,
    SafeDNS Team

    P.S. in July 2017, we had a whole year offered.
    I didn’t use it, btw, since I installed yandex’s DNS instead; but it’s not sufficient, to prevent “sites de rencontre” in France. I’m happy to be able to try SafeDNS again.

    Ouch, the setting on the local computer offer [ x ] or [ √ ], versus the web interface settings, and they seem opposite, so I have no idea if [ x ] means filter is not used or if [ x ] means the referenced contents will be blocked ( filter is used ), and I have no idea if [ √ ] means filter is used, or [ √ ] means referenced content will pass through ( filter is not used ).

    See [ http :// oi66 . tinypic . com/16h9mbr . jpg ] to compare web client to Windows client setting opposite each other — who wins, when do they talk to each other, how would I know where to fix or change something if my web browsing experience misbehaves?

    Has anyone heard of [ On / Off ] or [ Filter will be used / Filter will not be used ]?

    I tried a few settings:

    [ Safe Search ] not only made Google mostly empty, it also blocked all other search engines ( except Bing ), so I’d have to put in an exception for, say, DuckDuckGo … and then I’d lose safe search filtering.

    [ PornHub.com ] produces a [ This site is blocked ] page.

    [ Wikipedia.org ] just came up with Chrome’s standard [ … can’t be reached, check your DNS,or try again … ]

    That’s pretty awkward.

    It took an unknown amount of time for changes in the web client to propagate.

    I shut it off and tried over and over to upload the sample image before I could even get to the image-share page above, I just got a blank web page, no message.

    This seems way to complicated and seems to promise to require way too much experimentation to resolve ambiguities for me to recommend this to anyone, let alone use it myself.

    Sorry.

    [@Peter Blaise]
    Thanks a lot Peter for having shared your experience.
    I’m going to pass trying SAfeDNS this time.
    I don’t to get angry with a too complicated and ambiguous solution.
    See you
    Stephan.
