I can't access several Android mobile apps while connected to my Talk Talk Broadband. This includes Facebook, Instagram, Play More Tennis, Strava, and others.
This has been happening ever since I had Talk Talk Broadband installed a few months ago. The only way to gain access to the apps is by switching to mobile data, which obviously isn't ideal.
My wife experiences the same issue, as have guests who have been in my home. Resetting the router corrects the problem for around half an hour, before the problem reoccurs.
I have a Huawei P30 Lite, but it has also affected visitors with iPhones and other Huawei models.
Any suggestions on how I can resolve this?

Thanks so much for your support.
It was indeed a Kids Safe issue, and I've now resolved it thanks to the helpful advice provided.

I see ferguson has moved your post out of the Email forum because, quite rightly, it's not an Email service issue.

I'd replied to your original post because I think it's a KidsSafe issue but I'll now leave you in the hands of ferguson rather than duplicate responses. I hope that's ok with you.
