Tools to help protect your family.

An open internet can be unsafe for children, and parenting in this digital age is difficult. These are some tools for parents to help control unwanted content and assist in providing a safe internet for you and your family.

If you run into something that you think we should add, please let us know at protect@fellowshipknox.org

Remember

Restrictive apps and programs on your children’s devices are great tools to protect them, but they are just that: tools. You still need to educate your children about appropriate content.

All Mac (iOS & Mac OS) Households

FILTERING
For all Mac households we suggest using OpenDNS to filter your whole network. Then use the builtin iOS Restrictions to filter the device as well as block access to songs, podcasts, and videos based on MPAA ratings. If you prefer not to use apple builtin filter we suggest K9 for an on device safe browser.

TIME LIMITING
Intego Family Protector and ParentKit are both good options to help shut down devices during specific time periods or lock specific apps.

Windows and Android Homes

FILTERING
We suggest OpenDNS to filter your whole network, or if you prefer on device filters use Mobicip or K9 Web Protection.

TIME LIMITING
To help establish healthy screen time boundaries we suggest using Dinnertime Plus which allows you to limit access to specific apps, set daily time limits, and even lock out the device.
