Default Protect Your Kids Online Using Open DNS

This week I have been covering tools to use within Windows Vista to help keep your kids safe using the PC and while being online. This article will apply will show how to use Open DNS with any Operating System to help filter undesirable web content. Simply put DNS (Domain Name System) translates IP address to an easy to remember hostname. For example if you were to type 216.239.51.99 without the quotes into your web browser you will be directed to google.com.

I wrote up an article previously that basically introduces you to Open DNS and how to add it to your router. Here we will look a bit deeper into it and show you how to best use it to your advantage. There is a lot of web content filtering possibilities which include specific sites, specific content, and adult website filtering.
