    koshernet is ok. its better to get a jewish filter…….

    #909949

    Brita. You really want to filter the Net and get rid of all the schmutz, you should throw your computer into a bucket of filtered water and leave it there for a day or so!

    I don’t have experience with other filters; I have been using the Jnet for the past few years. I currently have level 5 filtering with shopping (if I recall correctly, regular level 5 doesn’t let you into websites such as Amazon). If you only want specific websites and nothing else, consider the whitepages system, also offered by the Jnet, in which you only get the websites you specify – if I understand correctly.

    see http://www.thejnet.com for more info

    K9 is good, but plenty of bad things are accessible when it’s in the default mode. I’m constantly adding things to my “always block” list.

    consumersearch is a highly reliable website:

    We have jnet and are happy with them. There may be other filters out there that are good, but there is a definite advantage to having the filtering done by a company with a frum perspective. Their mehadrin (real-time) feature is also really nice. Even if a site falls through the cracks and is not blocked, the images will be filtered in real time as the page loads.

    I also have jnet. The problem is I cant see any images from YW pictures. A small price to pay. (besides the fee, that is)

    ZeesKite, A very small price to pay indeed. It’s refreshing when you see someone not whining about what they have to give up for yiddishkeit. Rather that they appreciate that it’s a small price for the great return they are getting.

    i have k9 and like it a lot its great and free. we used to have pure sight (which is what Phil Rosenthal suggested) but it was too restricting.

    #909959

    We have K9 and I think its okay. I never got blocked from anything I needed but was never exposed to things I shouldn’t see (such as the ads on the side of websites). Its free and easy to install but also VERY easy to bypass the password. If you know there is a danger of someone who is tech-savy in your home, DON’T get it. I know someone who had it in their home and someone wanted to access a video of Kate and William that was blocked and did very easily (and this person isn’t a super tech-savy teen).

    Don’t look at treff sites. It is 100% effective, costs nothing, and doesn’t affect the functioning of the computer.

    Do you need an automated thingamajig to keep from buying treff in a supermarket?

    I was going to get a blackberry but I wasn’t aware of any filtering system for it on BIS so I didn’t. I checked your site again and still didnt find anything. Could you (or anybody else) post a link to blackberry filters please?

    Thanks

    K9 is free and good.

    Best would be if someone else has the password.

    Or you can just keep it as a reminder that hey, this site is unappropiate and use your self control to steer away.

    There is one thing that I had with K9, we installed it in our office computers, it made the entire network operate extremly slow. Never was able to figure out why it happened with K9.

    we use a filter called convenant eyes which is amazing. u can receive a report of what everyones been up to and therefore ensure noones bypasing the filter. nowadays its really quite simple to bypass if u know what ur doing and its not so complicated to learn this stuff.

    #909982

    The best internet filter is the one between your ears.

    #909983

    For Monitoring

    check out:

    Spectorsoft (from eBlaster) for windows, blackberry and android etc..

    Guard Your Eyes – I once went to your Website and found it inappropriate for myself to be going there.

    Do you have a url that just discusses filtering or a phone number/hotline just for this purpose?

    Thank you.

    How do we block the pictures of r’shaim that YWN insists on showing with many stories?

    I really dont want these pictures of bernie madoff or osama bin ladin or levi aron

    covenant eyes is excellent, but no system is flawless, unless you can get something. like rimon in usa but I don’t know!

    I still maintain the best filter is the off button.

    i highly recommend k-9

    It’s free!!

    you can set a time limit- for example mine limits my internet time until 1:30 am

    you can allow specifically which sites you want or not

    MAKE SURE TO GIVE YOUR PASSWORD TO SOMEONE ELSE!!!!!!!!! can’t tell you how important this is. give your password to a close neighbor/spouse/older sibling/roomate that you trust

    tizku limitzvos, this is a huge step in your growth, and one of the most important things you can be doing for yourself.

    I agree 1000% with nitpicker and have been debating blocking YWN both because of the pictures of reshaim who we shouldn’t be looking at as well as the ability to add comments to the news stories (and things gedolim say) which just allows apikorsus and kefira to be posted by various readers…

    I do agree that the modding staff is way too lax on this site at times and they let some very offensive things get past them.

    I still maintain, the power button is still the best filter. Keep it in the off position.
