If the kid is more than 10 years old it will not work.aricher said:I've been asked by a friend to help him child-proof his Mac Mini Safari. Does anyone know how to block specific websites in Safari?
But Safari's technique is to allow sites, not block them. It makes the Internet a lot more restricted to them, but they can't look at anything you haven't personally added to their "OK" list. So you'll have to go look at "good.com" before your kid can see it. Yes, you'll constantly be bugged by your kid to add sites to the "OK" list, but if it makes you proactive about it and makes you interact with your kid more rather than using the Internet as a babysitter.ChrisA said:If the kid is more than 10 years old it will not work.
Is there a site that outlines this process step-by-step?Nermal said:You can block hosts on a one-by-one basis by adding them to the /etc/hosts file, with an IP address of 0.0.0.0. If you're not familiar with the terminal then I don't recommend this route
You wouldn't have to worry about the kids even wanting to use the computer. Makes that top option a winner
