What is the Difference Between the CleanBrowsing Free and Paid Service?

There are two ways to use the CleanBrowsing service, the Free or Paid option. A common question we get is around the difference between the two.

This article provides answers.

Free vs Paid – The Difference

The key difference between the Free and Paid plan is control and visibility.

The free service is fixed, it doesn’t allow you to tune your network to your specific needs. With the Free service, if you don’t like a categorization, you can request it be reviewed, but you are otherwise stuck with how we’ve defined the category. The paid plan allows you to tune the filters to better conform with your beliefs and network needs.

Here is a logical grouping of differentiating features that help paint a more complete picture of the differences.
