    Has anybody found any solution for safe search for images ? Being a K12 school district we are very concerned about what kids see when they search images and get un wanted big thumb nails. Is this feature even on the radar for OpenDNS to implement soon ? This is more important for most of school districts than AD integration.

    OpenDNS is about DNS not web content. If you need web content control, DansGuardian is an excellent choice.

    Following jdrash1, look into Google Safe Search, which can block *most* images a school might consider inapprorpiate

    Keep in mind: nothing is fool-proof (short of physical disconnecting the router).

    jdrash1, then someone should tell openDNS to close down http://www.opendns.com/parental-controls/ and http://netgear.opendns.com/ and erase lines like "Protect your family on computers, gaming consoles, mobile devices and more." and "This unique functionality makes OpenDNS the single most effective Internet parental controls solution available."

    :tongue:

    Slytle: when you consider all OpenDNS does to provide parental controls and overall protection (as opposed to not using it), your argument loses merit.

    But what do I know? I'm a parent and user for +5 years, and not an employee/spokesperson for them.
