In general, you can allow the YouTube app but enable SafeSearch to block out inappropriate content.

  • Enable SafeSearch on YouTube application. You can do it by opening Funamo app, then go to Internet filtering -> Set YouTube filter, which will give you step by step instructions on how to enable SafeSearch. Once you click OK, it will bring you to the YouTube app where you can change the settings. Once you are done, you can click back button to return to Funamo. (Funamo, when enabled, automatically protects YouTube settings page so that it can't be changed without your password)
  • Now Youtube app has SafeSearch enabled, we can add youtube.com to the blacklist so kids can't access it through the browser. You can do it by going to Internet filtering -> Add website blacklist. Click add and enter youtube.com, then click OK.

If you would like to completely block YouTube video all together, you can do the following:

  • Add the YouTube app to the protected list so that it always requires your password to launch. You can do it by opening Funamo app, then go to Protected apps, click Select applications. Then select YouTube app from the list, then click Save button.
  • Add youtube.com to blacklist as we described above.

Nope, I've tried this. Problem is, Funamo does NOT protect YouTube (app) settings anymore.

Edit: Uninstalled Funamo, then reinstalled it. Now it is protecting YouTube settings.
