Parental Filter icon A suitable software solution for home computers in order to provide extra protection for youngsters from potentially harmful or inappropriate content

If you're looking for a basic parental control tool to block access to a number of websites and don't want to waste time with complicated configuration options, have a look at Parental Filter. Especially designed to serve this purpose, Parental Filter has only a few minimal tools, which makes everything incredibly easy to use even for the very beginners.

Easy to use despite appearances

The interface is a mess and although you simply don't know where to start after launching the app for the first time, it takes just a few minutes to figure out how to use the program.

Parental Filter has dedicated features to block access to the user-defined websites, with very simple editing tools to add or remove some of the entries in a second.

Lock down desired applications

You can thus see the so-called “allowlist” or the “banlist” straight from the main window, and adding a new website is as easy as typing its address.

The configuration options are again basic and besides the fact that it lets you hide and show the application with the F keys on your keyboard, it also gives you the power to lock the program with a password and thus prevent other users from closing it.

Clever management of system resources

Parental Filter is supposed to run all the time, so it places an icon in the Windows System Tray, but that doesn't necessarily mean that it slows down the operating system. It doesn't and the app doesn't have any issue to run on Windows 8 as well, without even asking for administrator privileges.

To end with

As a conclusion, Parental Filter is indeed a handy tool, but a refreshed look and more customization options are a must have. All these considered, as well as it can run on the latest Windows versions, can still prove to be handy if you manage to get passed the interface.
