internet filter

Do you use an internet filter to block out sites with inappropriate language and images? I’m currently searching for a good internet filter and have downloaded one called K9 Web Protection by Blue Coat Systems. I did a search for several “bad” words (as a test – to make sure it was working and to see how it worked) and was completely blocked by Google SafeSearch. The only issue that’s a concern is that the Google SafeSearch settings can be accessed with a click of the mouse. I have not seen a way to password protect Google SafeSearch yet.

Ideas and suggestions are welcome.

  1. try turning off safe search on google and attempt your search again. K9 should automatically always enable safe search with each request

  2. Filtering is a great tool, but it’s not the only kind of software out there. Have you ever heard of accountability software? Accountability software is specifically for adults who want to guard where they go online without any blocking or filtering. Combined with filtering, it’s a great Internet safety solution for the whole family. If you want more info about it check out my post “Is Filtering All There Is?” (http://www.covenanteyes.com/blog/2008/06/12/is-filtering-all-there-is-introducing-accountability-software/)
