“Thanks for your call this morning. Setup was a breeze. My connection was so slow with the other filter, but now I am up and flying again and the filter really works this time.”

Curtis Sanders

“My wife and I would like to thank you for providing a filter that blocks the filth but still allows her to do the research she needs for nursing. What a true blessing it is to have a Clean Internet! Thanks again!”

Rob & Terri Snyder

“I sure appreciate how this filter works. I had been using bsafeonline, but that can be uninstalled in seconds. What good is a filter if it can be uninstalled or turned off so easy?”

Ron G.

“Yes the setup was easy, and thank you very much for providing this much needed service. It will be so much easier to web surf without worrying about pulling up garbage. Thanks again!”

Bill Center

“Yes, both Firefox and Internet Explorer are filtered. Now we can feel safer knowing that we won’t accidentally encounter pornography on the web. Thank you for your efforts in serving our Lord.”

Robert Simpson

“I have tested many internet filters and found them lacking. Most don’t block worth a hill of beans and the one that did was so slow and hard to get things unblocked it was worthless. I tried all day to disable your filter but couldn’t. I don’t know how you guys have done it or why the other can’t but I thank God for you.”
