OpenDNS FamilyShield helps protect kids online

Today’s iPhones and Macs come with a very elaborate set of parental controls to help keep your children out of harm’s way, but when it comes to browsing the Web itself, it’s still all or nothing. Either you have to depend on a software package that slowly runs through every single thing that your child sees online, or keep your children restricted to a fixed list of Websites that you have to manage on your own.

Fortunately, the folks that brought you OpenDNS have made another option. OpenDNS FamilyShield privacy controls leave the porn and scam site blocking to the folks at OpenDNS, and it’s as just easy to set up as the company’s flagship services. All you have to do is add two IP addresses to your DNS settings and you’re done. If you need more help, OpenDNS will walk you through the process every step of the way as you follow the instructions on its Website.

OpenDNS FamilyShield and OpenDNS Basic are both free. They work on virtually any device that can connect to the Internet.
