Orbi App parental controls no longer working

I had been using the free parental controls on the Orbi app to limit my child's time on the internet, but it is no longer working.  When I turn off certain device, the internet is still accessible on the device.  Any ideas to get it working again? Thank you.

Netgear turned off the free servuce a year or more ago.

 

Open DNS backed out of the Netgear collaboration on free parental controls some time ago.

Netgear now offers various subscriptions for parental controls.

Other devices support Circle, another subscription service. But that too seems to be a moveable feast:

There may be  more recent stuff out there. It is hard to keep up.

That is strange because they were working up until about a month ago. I only used them to shut off the wi-fi on certain devices when needed. Thank you for your response though!
