An internet filter program or service does exactly what it says - it filters your internet content according to your selected parameters.
The internet makes all information available to everyone, even when it is dangerous or inappropriate. Therefore, younger children and impressionable teenagers have access to more and more of this information without the benefit of adult direction and explanation.
Internet filtering has become more and more attractive to parents and schools and helps you, as a parent, guardian or teacher, introduce your child or teenager to the world and its potential perils in a more appropriate way.
