Whenever you use Internet at home or at small business environment you will notice that there is no such things like a firewall or UTM(Unified Threat Management). Though firewall and antivirus are installed and activated in your machines, there are chances of malware, backdoors and virus. If you happen to get a virus visit Virusremovalbrisbane.com.au. When we talk of malware and virus I must say that it comes mostly with porn sites or any USB.

A Parental Control is important when you are using Internet at home or in a network where many people log in and use computer anonymously. When Internet is allowed at home and other network, many users visit porn and are addicted to pornography. I always recommend a proxy environment in a network, it always safe guards your network. But to form proxy environment either you need install a software or a get good firewall installed on your network. Installing software and get it updated is a pain and yes it pop ups every time you restart your computer.

There is a better way to activate Family Filter on your computer without any software. You can easily update your Computer or router DNS(Domain Name Server) IP. By doing so, it will definitely work as a proxy server and will block all the Porn sites thus adds a Family Filter on your side. Just a brief about DNS, whenever you hit a web page in your Computer it is redirected through a DNS to open up and since DNS gateway is applied it will bypass all the requests.

There are few Public DNS providers, who protect you from malicious viruses, adult contents and allow safe browsing. They actually have a group of categories which are mainly block topics like violence, gambling, adult chat rooms, advertisements etc. These Public DNS has few special features like misspelling correction, checking phishing sites and even content filtering.

The Parental Control DNS for Family Filter are:

DNS Provider

Primary DNS

Secondary DNS

Open DNS


Norton DNS


I recommend you to use Norton DNS, as it gives full virus protections from backdoors and trojans and even from a full pack of porn sites. Another plus point is that the virus centre is totally updated.

How to update the DNS settings?

  1. Click on the Start button > Control Panel > Network and sharing > Look for the connected connections.

  2. Open the connected connection.

  3. Click on the Properties button.

  4. Now you need to click on the Internet Protocol Version 4(IPv4).

  5. Another window pops up. Change the DNS server address like in the figure.
