Looking For A Block Software

Recommended Posts

There is a literal TON of software to block things on the computer. I think they are called like Cyber Sitter or something like that. I live near a Microcenter in the USA and there are at minimum 20 software titles on their shelf that do exactly that.

If you want to do it cheaper (kind of) and make it so that your kid can't just disable it. set up your own transparent proxy that the connection from the computers has to go through. That's what the school system I worked at set up.

It's not 100% guaranteed, but the only way around it would be to use a VPN or SSH Tunnel.

It all depends on your Tech comfort level.

best of luck!

*edit* I just noticed you said *FREE*

I can't guarantee it but you can try this

Best thing to do, is change your DNS to OpenDNS, sign up with their site(its free) and add your IP address, then set what filters you want. No software to install and you can set this in yoru router so its completely transparent and every pc will share the same features once you set them.

This would probably be the best/easiest thing to do.

+1 vote, it can also protect against malware (a little).

I agree with this and highly recommend OpenDNS. I use it at home and it is great for filtering certain sites and as a bonus, OpenDNS is faster than my ISP's DNS servers.

Tks for your suggestion!I will try OpenDNS.So many people recommend that software.I think maybe it's very good!

My question has been solved :rolleyes:

Just to be clear, OpenDNS isnt software you install, it is a configuration change you do to your DNS, either on the router, or each machine. Much easier to just change it on the router and let DHCP handle the rest. Also, in order to filter things, you have to sign up with their site, which is free. Then sign in and set up your block filter.
