    Don’t be fooled into thinking Web Filters can provide you 100% security for your children. Let’s say the are looking for flower gardens. If they click on a link to an image of flowers the filter cannot stop your child seeing swear words or nudity in that image. You can use a special code to add swear words to a page and the filter won’t stop it.

    No filter beats a parent that sits next to their child while they are on the Internet and never leaves the room with out taking the child with them. Kids are sneaky and will try anything while you are gone.
