When switching YouTube content restrictions from one level of filtering to another (Strict, Moderate and Unfiltered), the adam:ONE system takes a maximum of 30 seconds to take effect.
However, the delay beyond that can be 5-30 minutes.
This delay happens as YouTube indexes their content and then caches it locally on the computer over which adam:ONE has no control. YouTube servers may also cache your filtering setting for a certain amount of time.
If you need access to a restricted YouTube video on a device as quickly as possible, here are some steps you can take to verify that it’s not a cached setting on your computer.
- clear the browser’s cache
- clear the operating system DNS cache
At any point in time, you can use https://adamnet.io/yt to check whether YouTube is applying any restriction levels.
