    Besides K9, what other free internet filtering app can be used?

    Not sure if this is a serious question, or just trolling.

    Assuming the former, you might try typing "parental control mac" into Google and see what pops up.

    Assuming you just want to block access to adult/offensive/inappropriate websites, then you could try using OpenDNS to prevent access to site categories and individual sites yourself.

    It's just a matter of updating a couple of fields in your Routers config.

    You know, I had never thought of that. That's a damned fine and very very simple idea. And free as well. I might well do that myself now - cheers!

    Just found this thread. I'm looking to setup filters on my kids ipads and the family computer.

    Has anyone used k9webprotection.com, or should I use something else?
