The Top Internet Filters

Posted on by Dr. Kevin Skinner

Internet filters are becoming more and more essential for family and business computers. Due to the amount of pornography found on the Internet it is easy to unintentionally view pornography. Fortunately most internet filters are successful at reducing unwanted pornographic images. However, not all filters offer the same service. This page will help you navigate through the various internet filters so that you can find the best protection available on the web.

Most filters protect the innocent but they also curtail chronic users viewing as well. Below you will find a list of the top products available.

Here is a list of key things you should look for when looking for a good internet filter.

  1. Ease of installation
  2. Effectiveness of filtering—too much or too little
  3. Adjustable filter settings
  4. Reporting searches via email notification or online
  5. Cost

If you are not a technical junkie you should know that there is other criteria to look for in a good filter, but these are the key things you should look for.

The results?

Netmop

I have talked with the owner of Netmop and feel very good about recommending their internet filter. They offer a cost effective way to protect your family.

One thing I really like about their service is that you cannot shut the filter off by using a password. In order to shut off their system it requires a parent to call and shut it off. Their phone support is one of the best available on the net.

How do they compare on the five criteria?

  1. Ease of installation

Netmop offers easy installation and if you experience problems they have a good costomer support. Their filter can also be installed on three computers for no extra fee

  1. Effectiveness of filtering—too much or too little

Netmop is very effective in preventing random access to objectionable sites. However, as with most filters there are some loop holes. After talking with the owner, I am convinced that they are working to create the safest filter on the web without limiting too much access. As is common with many filters if you make it through the initial filter, there are few road blocks to finding objectionable material.

  1. Adjustable filter settings

Netmop provides the safest control—a required phone call by an authorized person. This is a great tool for individuals addicted to pornography.

  1. Reporting searches via email notification or online

Netmop does not offer notification if there has been a violation.

  1. Cost

$54.00 per year—This is comparable to other internet filters available plus they offer free technical support.Click Here to Purchase Netmop Internet Filters
