Block porn using free DNS

Today just see some ads about positive internet on my cable channel. Despite the controversy last  time because our goverment is blocking Vimeo,  i support their effort to make internet safer and positive (don’t take it the same with internet censorship). Beside using Nawala DNS you guys can also use OpenDNS Family Shield which is freely available. To configure your Mac OS X to use OpenDNS:

  1. open your Network Preference (search on spotlight for “network preference”).
  2. Click Advanced.. under your active connection (mine is Wi-Fi)
  3. Click DNS tab and put 208.67.220.123 & 208.67.222.123; OK and Apply

Besides all the great free services from OpenDNS, not all porn site can be blocked 100%. The reason is there’s a lot of porn site slip on sites like blogspot, tumblr and much more. Globally, porn is a $97 billion industry, according to Kassia Wosick, assistant professor of sociology at New Mexico State University. So the safest way to protect your family is to put the computer in the central of the room, and spent time with them when they get online. For more details go to this link.
