About YouTube Restriction Changes

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.

At any point in time, you can use https://www.youtube.com/check_content_restrictions to check whether YouTube is applying any restriction levels.
