With pcWRT, you can protect children from harmful content on the web and limit their screen time. Aside from the solid parental control features, pcWRT is a standalone router just like other general purpose routers. It does not depend on our infrastructure (cloud or otherwise) to function. There's no subscription fee. You buy it, you own it!
WEBSITE BLOCKING WITH OpenDNS
The most effective way to block inappropriate web sites on the router is to configure it to use OpenDNS or Norton ConnectSafe, and pcWRT makes it easy for you to set them up. Further, pcWRT blocks the techniques (such as DNS override, proxies and VPN) used to bypass parental control.
ENFORCE SAFE SEARCH
Without SafeSearch, objectionable images and videos may still creep into search results. With pcWRT, you can enforce SafeSearch on selected devices or users by clicking a checkbox.
TURN ON YouTube RESTRICTED MODE
Parents concerned about inappropriate videos on YouTube may choose to turn on YouTube Restricted Mode, again by simply clicking a checkbox.
SET SENSIBLE TIME LIMITS
You may want to turn off Internet at night. You may want to limit the time children spend on social networks or video sites. You may want to be somewhat lenient on school websites. The pcWRT router allows you to set different time ranges for different web sites, for specific devices and users
OVERRIDE DNS FILTERING WITH LOCAL WHITE/BLACK LISTS
You can customize web site blocking by entering domain names into local black lists and white lists.
