    How do I block porn completely on my computer?

    Is there a way that no porn is ever accessible on my computer. Like there is absolutely no way to access it? Or a password or something to block all porn?

    Note that the only parental block software that will definitely block all porn are those where you provide a whitelist of sites and only those sites on the list will be accessible. Even then you are relying on those sites not getting defaced with porn.

    No blacklist software that blocks specific sites or software using an algorithm to determine what sites to block will block all porn sites.

    An alternative is to use software that logs all of the pages visited which would then enable you to see if any were visited.

    You can also block porn sites by using your browser add on I've been using this on Firefox. You just need to determine porn sites that you want to block.

    Net nanny is a good parental control and also available for Mac. Another is K9 Web Protection a free internet filter and parental control for home use and also available in windows and mac computer.

    I hope this can help you successfully block porn sites.

    Post How to block porn completely

    Use internet security program like Kaspersky,ESET (in Latest Version 5 released in 2011), Bit Defender etc. they have built in support for parental control (Password Protected). U can create a user which u want to set parental control and can block specific item and give access what type of site you want to give.
    For more information check the installation documentation for the antivirus or internet security program whichever you have purchased. (ONLY for HOME USERS).

    that is a big problem. The only solution is to block ALL Internet and than allow only certain websites. No filtering software can keep up with internet. Somebody can register www.ggaaggaaggaa.com domain name today and put porn on it. Good Luck

    In the "Content Advisor" section click on "Enable..."
    then choose your options
    do not use pass word as hint
    or
    when you have found book marks or in history
    go to those sites

    I'm not familiar with it but there are so many options you can choose when selecting a good internet filter for mac. It is depends on what you need most. Like what I said in my last post Net nanny is also a good internet filter for mac.

    Another is Aobo a web filter and internet filter that is specially design for Mac OS X users. It automatically blocks porn and filter the websites in blacklist from loading the web page.

    You can also check this article for more alternatives that might help you.

    well does this blocks sites massively? I need website blocker, unlike the built-in parental controls which blocks site one by one, I need it block site with keywords.

    Many home routers have the ability to block sites by domain and keywords.

    Yes. By using any Children safety software or parental control software, we can turf off all the weird stuff.

    1. Control Panel
    2. Internet Options
    3. Click on the Content tab
    It should be the first thing you see. Parental Controls. There you can change the Setting to whatever you want to keep your child safe. Good Luck.
