What is the best Internet Filter? Internet Filters are more important now than ever. One of the very first things to make its way to the Internet was pornography and other offensive content. Because pornography companies are privately held, nobody knows for sure how much revenue the porn industry generates. However, estimates range from $5 billion to as much as $97 billion per year, with a social cost much higher than that.

It might be surprising to know that websites displaying porn get more traffic than Amazon, Netflix, and Twitter combined. Every week there are thousands of new porn sites created, with a nearly uncountable number of porn sites today. The best internet filters can block these sites, because this is a problem that is not going away anytime soon.

Verity Parental Control software, available for Windows PCs only, is able to block programs or websites that you designate as potentially or actually harmful. You can track usage of all websites visited and applications used and take screenshots at various intervals to see what is going on with your child's usage.

Verity also includes monitoring online chatting (via screenshots), setting daily time limits for the whole computer, an application, or a website, and customizing restrictions for each user based on their login.

You can access usage reports via a password-protected online portal or through automated emails. The trouble with the Verity setup is that it's not a named website, but an IP address of the machine, with Verity installed, that is being monitored. You have to enter its IP address and port number in a browser to access that computer's monitoring. It's not very intuitive for the average user to figure out the first time, but the URL can be bookmarked for later.

Managing the screenshots and log data is also not intuitive as you need to log into the monitored machine and traverse its Windows folders to deal with individual files.

Verity has the ability to count keystrokes and mouse clicks per application, though it's not made clear on the vendor's website the purpose of counting keystrokes and mouse clicks.

Verity is only available on Windows, but is supported on XP up to Windows 10.

NCH Software, the maker of Verity, has an accreditation with the Better Business Bureau and an A+ rating. But, even though NCH appears to be addressing its customer complaints, its customer reviews could be better at only 3.5 stars.

Our opinion of this software is that the way it is built is out-of-step with modern applications, requiring the user to know how to use Windows directories and remember where files are stored, as well as using obscure, difficult-to-remember IP addresses and port numbers to access the monitoring interface. The software could use a good modernization before it will qualify for a higher rating.

Fortunately, internet filter programs exist to keep objectionable content away from innocent children. These programs each have a unique way of dealing with this difficult challenge.

There are a number of factors to consider when shopping for an internet filter. Some of these include:

  • Features. Can you only block websites? What about blocking or filtering email, file-sharing services, and chat rooms? Most of all, are they easy to use and difficult for children to circumvent?
  • Support. Look for as much support as you can get: toll-free phone service, chat, and email support taking no longer than 3 days from beginning to resolution.
  • Cost. Look out for services that charge you a fee to answer your questions. Pay attention to the full cost of the software and keep an eye on the number of months or years you're subscribing to.
