Family Web Safe

Could anyone please help?? When using a browser, such as Google, has anyone noticed if you search pornography the ALL sub menu blocks any entries into websites; which is good news. However if you click the IMAGES sub menu in the browser you will be inundated with pornographic pictures and gif video clips!! YES VIDEO CLIPS!! I'm mentioning "Google" as it's the one my family use and familiar with, not sure if the other browser work the same way. Does anyone know how to block these images through Family Web Safe? Surely you would expect Web Safe to block anything to do with pornographic images or contents. Crazy as is sounds, but I'm trying to access dodgy site and test these website blockers before my 11year old son tries accessing them, which I don't think will be long considering what is being taught in schools (ie the basic birds & bees) and what children talk about in the playground. I know it's difficult to stop every eventuality, but slowing down the process would be a start. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You.

You can't, those are being cached and served by google, websafe is also easy to bypass in a browser or by changing the machines DNS servers to use something other than VM's DNS servers which are required for websafe to work in the first place, the only way to block the goggle image results would be to block google itself and VM aren't going to add that filter

Re: Family Web Safe

Thanks for the reply.

Crazy that with modern technology and software that nobody has thought this one out. We are preached on keeping our children safe whilst on the web and a simple thing like this is left to escape through the net by our world's top leading software suppliers.

I'm amazed! ...but an excellent opportunity for someone to make some excellent money here....

There are software options out there, google has an option to enable safe search, both are easily bypassed or disabled, there is no foolproof way to stop people finding porn on the internet if they want to find it
