    You can't use the BB10 browser. There are a number of "safe" Android browsers.

    Lol these noobs again. Tunnel all your traffic through a local Vpn or dummy with the Dns configured to one of the dns shields like opendns or norton

    Depending on the age of the child and how much they can figure out, you should be able to set search engines like startpage and duck duck go to block adult content too. I never had much luck getting android browsers to work well on my z30

    Good advice too, but it's not always easy to find a good quality, trustworthy, free VPN service.

    I meant a dummy pass-through not a service

    Take a look at Opendns. Google it. You won't have to worry about individual browsers, you can block sites via your modem. So any device connected on WiFi will not be able to access inappropriate sites. Check it out. Free. It's just by changing your DNS settings

    Yes you can use the BB10 browser. For a child, just reconfigure your phone WiFi settings by setting the DNS to openDNS family shield

    But if you're really asking for an adult, reduce your mobile data cap, go the router route by using opendns on your router, block DNS bypass by using a firewall rule on your UDP port 53, change the admin password on your router and handover the unknown password to a supportive individual for safe keeping.

    Sounds like an interesting solution. Would it necessarily be a "noob" to ask the question? Seriously, I'd like to read a quick step-by-step on how to do that which you're suggesting.

    Use the router option from my last post. That's the easiest method and it's secured with a password and not very easy to break for the non tech user especially if you block DNS bypass and restrict admin access from yourself with the password method also good if you have teenage kids.

    Using a local VPN means hosting your own server and relays and not a paid or external service like Conite suggested. How do you browse on a public WiFi without your own VPN? I can't give you a step by step process because you have to know and be responsible for your own security needs but there are sites you can browse to help you get started with the basics.

    Using a dummy might be proprietary.
