Parental Control for images/videos

I have turned on the Family Safety Parental Controls to medium (suitable for children aged 10+). As expected, I was unable to access inappropriate web-sites. However, inappropriate images can still be viewed. Is there a way to block images and videos as well?

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Unfortunately, not through that product.

There are some commercial products that do a better job, but none are 100% effective.
Images and videos are hard to police as the software has no idea what it is looking at. Things like that are usually blocked at the site level (ie the site gets blocked).
Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

Thanks Jupiter. Will research commercial products as an additional measure. Blocking web-sites is a good start but not too effective for controlling access to the likes of pornography.
