Create Your Own Site Filters
In Internet Explorer, you can create your own Web site filters, which are useful in the following circumstances:
- You don't want to use a rating service.
- The rating service you use permits access to a site you don't like.
- The rating service you use blocks access to sites you feel are appropriate for your children.
Use these steps to create a list of sites that you want to filter for:
- Open Internet Explorer and choose Tools → Internet Options. The Internet Options dialog box appears.
- Click the Content tab, and in the Content Advisor section, click the Enable button and then click the Approved Sites tab.
- Enter the URL for a Web site you want to filter for; then click the Always or Never button. Repeat this step as many times as you want. If you click the Always button after entering a URL, that site is always accessible, even if you are using a rating service that disallows it. Furthermore, sites designated as Always never require your password. Sites designated as Never require a password.
- When you are finished, click OK to close the dialog box and save your changes. If this is your first time using this feature, you're prompted to create a password.
