I have looked at the Ultra hub settings and there are no settings to block URL's.

 

For the lastest modem I thought there would have been some awesome features, like an app to control the modem.

 

Slingshot had the ability to turn on a Parental filter, something that blocked content before it even made it to the modem, has Vodafone go something similar?

There are parental controls available but they focus on limiting access to certain times for certain devices. To block types of websites, there are 3rd party filters available for devices etc and you'll need to enter each domain name/url. We certainly work with other providers and government to block the more malicious things online but leave the day to day control etc to yourselves as users. 

I'm sure there are other community members who could advise on filters etc better than me.

You might be able to change the DNS settings in the router to Open DNS Family Shield, and force all DNS queries through it. I'm not familiar enough with the Ultra Hub, so sorry can't advise how to do this.

The only issue with this and quite a major one in my opinion is that when pointing the router at the open DNS servers the Vodafone Tv (legacy) set top box stops working as it must be pointed at Vodafone servers. According to Vodafone help techs there is no way around this or a way to only point the lan traffic at Vodafone and wifi at OpenDNS.

Extremely keen to hear others thought about this. Can’t believe Vodafone don’t have web filtering available similar to Spark net shield.
