    I have open dns set up to block all porn, and it works well. However, I discovered that if I go to Google.com and do an image search, I can access hardcore porn images. All I had to do is turn off Google's filter. Is there a way to block porn on Google's image search?

    The forum is full with related threads.
    Google's SafeSearch is your best friend, so don't turn it off, but make it permanent.

    Many images can be blocked by adding gstatic.com to your "always block" list, but this blocks also many (even more) non-porn images and does not block all porn images either.

    Yes the forum is filled with these threads but I found the solution after looking all over the site... and the solution isn't on this site its from K9 web protection... and its beautiful!

    So, here is the down low, from my research K9 is the only free company that has media searching blocked entirely :) I mean all the way! No image searches allowed on Bing, Yahoo, Google etc. At last a solution that is smarter than the search engines.

    Hope this helps as much as it helped me and my family.

    I have already raised the subject of blocking with K9 and Kidswatch on multiple threads. K9 actually has its own safe search engine which my children hate because it works so well :)

    K9 has been mentioned for multiple reasons for years here.

    It helpsif you understand that domain name blocking blocks...domains. Nothing more or less. If all images somewhere are not conveniently hosted on a single domain, which also hosts nothing else, well, you get the picture.
