Forbidden content

Opens a dialogue window in this area where you can block specific web content for the user currently displayed. Check the categories you wish to be blocked. Click on OK and the websites that fit the blocking criteria will be blocked.

If you click on the NEW button, a dialog box opens where you can define your own blocking criteria (also called blacklists). To do this, first give the name and, if you want, any additional information about the filter you are creating.

Then click on OK to open a new window which lets you list the content you'd like blocked by this filter.

Add a term under Filter that is to be blocked, and under Search location indicate the parts of a website that should be searched for the term.

Here, you have the following options:

  • URL: If you check "URL" it will search for the term that should be blocked in the web address. For example, if you want to block websites like www.chatcity.no, www.crazychat.co.uk etc., you can simply set chat as a filter, check the URL option and click on the ADD button. This way, you can block all websites in which the word chat appears in the domain name (i.e. the website address).
  • Header: If you check "Header" it will search for the term that should be blocked in the website's title. This is the area displayed, for example, when you want to bookmark a website in your "Favorites" list. For example, if you want to block websites like Chat City Detroit, Teenage Chat 2005 etc., you can simply set chat as a filter, check the Title option and click on the ADD button. This way, you can block all websites in which the letter combination chat appears in the title.
  • Meta: The meta tags are text items concealed on websites designed to make search engines list the websites more effectively or more frequently. Search terms like sex or chat are often used here to increase the number of hits a website receives. If you want to block websites in which chat appears among the meta tags, you can simply set chat as a filter, check the Meta option and click on the ADD button. This way, you can block all websites in which the letter combination chat appears in the meta tags.
  • In entire text: If you want to check all readable content of a website, just add a term that should be blocked – for example, chat – then check the In entire text option and click on the Add button. This way, you can block all websites in which the word chat appears anywhere in the website text.

Websites that accidentally get filtered can be removed from the list using the Exceptions function. To do so, just click on the EXCEPTIONS button and enter the relevant site there.

Note: You can edit and delete your own filters as required in the Personal Filters area. For more information, see the section Personal filters.
