If a limited user is set as Child then the user will definitely be able to browse all kind of websites which they are supposed to go.
However, please check the following:
Open McAfee Security Center> Click on Parental Controls> Click on Configure on the right side> Click on the Advanced button that’s related to Parental Controls> Select the User Account> Click on Edit> Make sure “Age Appropriate Searching is Turned Off”
Thanks for the response BalaSGS.
I have now turned OFF "Age Appropriate Searching" for this limited user account.
Is this a know bug/issue - that having age appropriate searching somehow messes up the permissions on content filtering?
The blocked web pages were accessed by typing the URLs directly or following links from other (unblocked) parts of the website - not via a google search.
Sorry for the stupid question, I just want to make sure we're treating the right symptoms (and not reducing the level of protection on that limited account any further than I have to)!
No it’s not a bug but it’s an additional feature that’s been added to this version, but don’t worry it will not reduce the security level in anyway.
Thanks for the reassurance. However, I don't understand why turning this feature off will affect the sites which the Parental Control setting blocks or allows by default, which is the issue I'm trying to understand.
