Looks like VLAN tag insertion and better parental controls are on the way?

Community Member

Hi everyone, 

According to 9to5 Google, some users are seeing new features in their Nest Wifi such as the abililty to set their own VLAN ID and whether or not to use parental controls by default. 


This is great news and I hope it's rolled out for us all to enjoy as let's be honest, using a managed switch to insert a VLAN ID is a bit overkill. 


As for the parental controls, having them on by default may alleviate some of the issues we've seen when device MAC addresses are randomised (users can pass the blocks).
