Choosing an Internet Filter


For statistics about internet pornography click here. You will be taken to another internet site that has this information.


In the future internet filters are probably going to be as common in businesses and homes as virus software is today. Families with children and businesses concerned about employee productivity are already using internet filters in significant numbers. Many adults have also begun using these controls to curb their own internet behavior. The three A's of internet porn (anonymity, affordability, and availability) make the temptation to become preoccupied with porn overwhelming for many people.


Businesses are also using filters to reduce liablity for condoning a "hostile work environment" where employees are subjected to objectionable sexual material on their fellow workers' computers. In addition to porn, businesses are also filtering other types of material that may distract employees (sports, health, or financial information, etc.)

 

I have been very happy with WiseChoice.net as a good internet filter for my clients. I have communicated with Ned Dominick over the years and like his product. It is inexpensive and effective. You can click here to go to his website.

 

Many other filters are also reviewed on the internet. For a discussion about internet filters try internet-filter-review.toptenreviews.com. This site reviews internet filters, lists their features, rates them, and reports their prices. I think the site may get a referral fee from their top choices, so you might want to keep that in mind. Web searches will also turn up other filtering products that you can inspect and try.
