    Glad to have found this forum. Quick question. We got my 13yr. old son an ipod touch for Christmas and then realized that this provides him unprotected internet access. I'm assuming that since it is using safari that there would be some way to limit his access to adult sites but just wanted to check here for advice.

    Thanks in advance.

    im not 100% sure if this works with home networks but if you have the site filtered (Blocked) on your home computer and you son tries to get onto it on his ipod it should also filter because it works the same as this at my school

    i really hate schools that filter the best websites =))



    you should try it though

    do it via your router, log in and set up a list of banned apps. failing that, ssh in and delete safari.

    or.

    stop worrying, when i was that age my parents installed parental controls, i just found ways round them. belive me, you cant stop a 13 year old getting porn.

    Ahahah!

    So true...

    Make sure that you tell your kid about that... may stop him.

    Give him the old man to man talk. Or... Women to man... Or whatever...

    True that
    Personally I think parental controls are just annoying and unnecessary, if he wants to look at porn , so what? as long as he isn't payin for it...

    Delete Safari... jailbreak it >> install customize >> icon label order >> disable safari logo so he won't be able to access it.. do it secretly so he has no idea how to fix it

    As someone said above.

    What you should do is go into your router settings. There should be a section called "Access Restrictions". Here you can block websites and even block websites by keywords.
