Parental controls don't take effect immediately

I've set up some blocks on games to come into affect at bedtime, but the games continue to work until you come out of the game and try to go back in.

I assume the computer is caching the DNS for the length of the session which is why the block won't take effect immediately.

Is there anyway around this other than setting the router to reboot or bring down network for a minute?

  • + for this as well, I made a custom profile for my daughters two tablets and set every parental control to block with no timeframe and forgot network on both reconnected, even installed nextdns on each fire tablet and enabled the custom profile for both, still does not block any websites, even tried blacklisting a few sites to test and still allows them hours later
