What's a parent to do?

Hello @Dtcolton,
Welcome!
Please tell us:
  • Parent device operating system: version? build?
  • Child device operating system: version? build?
  • KSK version installed on (parent) device?
  • KSK version installed on (child) device?
  • GoogleChrome version?
  • When "images, news, books & shopping" are accessed, is it thru the Google Chrome browser or thru a GoogleApp, like "HelloGoogle", that redirects to a Google browser?
  • What settings in KSK Application Categories, have you set to configure KSK to limit searches when Google Chrome is used?
  • What settings in KSK Application monitoring, have you set to configure KSK to identify searches when Google Chrome is used?

  • If you could let me know please, so I can test the issue you're reporting and see if I get the same results?

And, information in case this will help:
  • For the parent, using KSK via the web portal (MyKaspersky account), there are 3 places to manage applications:
(1) Notifications - MyKaspersky portal


(2) Application monitoring - MyKaspersky portal


(3) Application Categories - MyKaspersky portal


Please let us know?
