Re: Safe family not updating

Thank you for the update.  I readied the app on my phone but no change so I re ran the install feature on the windows computer. Obviously this failed as it was already installed but I hoped it would trigger something. I then deleted the cache and cookies. Re started the computer. Nothing happened initially that day eve with known web activity taking place on the windows computer. But the subsequent day, today, I am now getting some web activity coming through. I don’t know yet if this is complete activity though. I need to do some tests myself tomorrow.
