There’s no DNS Protection available for mobile OS’s or MAC OS. You are best off looking at something like DNS Filter for that service.

From my understanding MAC OS will be the next focus, but even their MAC agent itself needs a complete rework, so I wouldn’t hold your breath for DNS Protection on mobile anytime within the next three years or more.

Dear community/ @TripleHelix 

I want to protect my children on their mobiles (ansroid & IOS) from the unwanted website like porno, drugs,terrorism, and others categorise based on a policy can be controlled by an administrator

So, is this feature available with one of your products?

Did you know if there is a plan or project in the short or long term, for DNS Protection to be available on mobile devices??
