“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.”
“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.”
“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?”
“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!”

“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!”
For all of the many benefits offered by the internet, it can be a scary place for parents, as there is so much content floating around online that is inappropriate for their children. Worse yet, since younger children are generally more trusting or naïve in nature, they are also much easy targets for those who try to manipulate them, including online predators, cyberbullies, and identity thieves. Sometimes it feels like there isn’t much that can be done about these issues though: avoiding the internet completely just isn’t an option in this day and age, as it is tied to our work, schooling, entertainment, and social lives.
Though many parents worry about their children accessing inappropriate content online, most are unaware of the solutions available to keep them safe. While there is a variety of software and hardware that can help ensure children’s safety online, the most convenient method for managing their internet usage is often to just make a few adjustments to their web browser settings. A web browser is a software application that allows you to access to the Internet, with the most common being Microsoft’s Internet Explorer and Edge, Apple’s Safari, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome. Each of these browsers include various settings and options that can be adjusted in order to block access to certain content, giving you a sense of relief when they spend time online.
As of this year, the average internet user is expected to spend 6 hours and 43 minutes per day online, adding up to more than 100 full days in a year. Additionally, the average American spends 2 hours and 3 minutes a day on social media, which is still slightly less than the global average of 2 hours 24 minutes. Over the past decade, social networking went from being just one of many activities that people enjoyed online to one of the most popular activities. The most common reasons people use the internet is to connect with family and friends, express opinions, looking up information, and shop online, and social media has grown to the point where it can encompass all of these things.
