Question of the week from Amber in Delmar? How do I block websites from my computer
Our friends at Computer Renaissance say to go into your control panel, internet options folder, security tab at the top. Then click one time in the “trusted zones” to highlight it. You’ll then see the “sites” button. Go there and you’ll that you can either “allow” or “block” any sites. Click the “add” button and type in the sites that you want blocked and then hit “block” and it will block that site. If you are looking to child proof your computer, there are also programs to monitor and block sites you choose and certain sites in general.
OR… you can block sites at the router level. Most wired or wireless routers on the market today have a section where you can block sites by the ip address of the computer or mac address of the computers network card. The mac address is like your social security #. Every network card has an identification number that is unique to that particular card (mac address). This way you can identify your kids computers & filter them. You also can block by keywords too. So you could enter any name that relates to sex, porn, violence, guns, etc
