Once you have set up Family Safety, you will be able to block various rated sites. All unrated sites are automatically blocked by default. You can, however, choose to allow them if you want. In order for the Family Safety feature to work, you have to start it on an administrator account. Family Safety is mostly directed at the safety of children. Adjusting these settings properly will ensure a safe environment for your child.

5.Check the box next to On, enforce current settings under “Family Safety.” Then click Web filtering. 

6.Select USER can only use the websites I allow. 

7.Finally, select the restriction level that will work best for your household. Once you have selected the restriction level, you are finished. You can now close Internet Options.
