If you don't know anything about the "settings" page, the star rating is probably accurate. This doesn't come configured out of the box. However, if you have been around computers for a while, this is a very easy to configure extension. It needs to be set up by the user or administrator. You need to tell it what counts as an off limits word as well as words that are fine if you come across them. The lists that come with the extension aren't very good (like blocking 18+ and sex might hi... Show more

Its a content blocker that can block content that contains certain words, so it blocks youtube and spells it out to the a child we blocked this because "Found the blocked keyword 'free and sex' in the page's Body" Exactly why would I want the very banned words displayed as a result on the block page.

Paid for that hoping that it could be set not to be uninstalled... I guess I lost my money... :/

When it blocks a site due to a false positive, there is a button that reads "trust this site" so we can continue to the site. I find that helpful because I tried another site where I could not even get a reply to my messages to allow me to see clean sites that probably were just mentioning products from the Naked brand of juice or something innocent.

EXCELLENT, even for other uses! Since antivirus suites no longer allow you to type undesirable URLs into the firewall, this extension comes as a true blessing! Even for those who don't care about filtering "adult" content, this is useful to get rid of "clickbait" websites and other annoying pests. You can insert your own filters the EASY way! (True, it requires some TLC. For example, since Google now owns "Doubleclick", getting rid of Doubleclick may also block YouTube, so I had to cance... Show more
