Parental control blocking non-adult websites

Jump to solution

Hi,

I've turned on parental controls and set it so it blocks adult sites like porn and other adult contents.  Problem is I'll sometimes google for something that is for the general, that kids can see like something educational, for work or school or for entertainment purposes (like gaming or videos, not porn of course!) and it'll block the website, telling me it's blocked because it's "adult."  What's adult about it if I'm not looking for something not suitable for children?  How do I fix this so I don't have to block every single porn site or adult content website that I know of?

My Mcafee program is updated.  I got multi-access total protection.

 

Thanks.

Hi @liz81 

Parental control will block web pages based on the age range specified for child user account. Each age range filter comes pre-configured to block and allow certain types of web traffic. Custom allows you to manually define what traffic you would like blocked. Please follow the article Parental Control Features to get more information. Additionally, new parental control product has been introduced by McAfee known as McAfee safe family click the below link to get more information.

McAfee Safe Family 

  • Under 5 years
  • 6 - 8 years
  • 9 - 12 years
  • 13 - 15 years
  • 16 - 18 years
  • Custom

When I selected custom age and blocked only adult websites, non-adult websites were getting blocked.  Maybe Mcafee is too strict on what is considered "adult."  I only want to block porn websites.
