Parental software

Su dred head

Recommended Posts

Hello eveyone,


I have purchased a new computer and need some decent parental software. I dont trust the advice of the staff at PC World as they seem pretty clueless!


I am a Mum on my own and dont know much about these things. I would just like something thats easy to install and operate.


Thanks for any help.

With this, when you login you can set what is available and what is not - they have blanket 'subject' headers e.g., block all religious sites, social media sites and you can also add other sites you specifically don't want young ones to access. After you have made your selections it takes 3 minutes for the changes to take effect.


You will need to add the OpenDNS server addresses in your Router:
