Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hi, i am a father who used K-9 web protection to keep my kids from using inappropriate web sites until they showed they were mature enough for me to be able to trust them. As time went by i realized i can trust them, the only problem is that when i went to unblock certain sites like facebook and myspace, and I FORGOT MY PASSWORD. I tried every password i have ever used and i could not remember for the life of me what i used for K-9. so i was wondering if you knew a way to get rid of K-9 web protection without a password. Thank you.

Try to uninstall the application. You can either go into the control panel and go into "remove programs" or check to see if the file for the program has an "uninstall" file. If you can't find the "uninstall" file, go to the website of the application and see if they have one online to download.

How to change your visible maturity level on Zazzle.com


Zazzle.com is a site where you can create your own custom apparel, stationery, and other products, as well as buy those designed by other users. By default, when you create an account with Zazzle, you're set up to only be able to view G-rated products. This setting is good if you have young children who use the computer, but many adults won't want to be censored.

The steps below will show you how to change your visible maturity level on Zazzle.com:

A. Open a web browser and go to http://www.zazzle.com.

B. Click on the "Sign in" link in the upper right corner of the page.

C. Enter your username and password, then click the orange "Sign in" button.

D. Click on "My Account" in the upper right corner of the page.

E. Click on either "Account Settings" on the left side of the page (under the "Member Account" heading) or "Account" on the row of tabs going across the page.

F. Scroll down until you see "Select the maturity level you would like visible to you."

G. Choose one of the three available options: G, PG-13, or R.

H. Click the orange "Update" button to save your change.

In order to set your maturity level to R, you'll have to agree to the Zazzle terms of use and also input a credit card number to be kept on file. If you've changed your maturity level to either PG-13 or R, you should be able to view those products immediately. Keep in mind that even when limited to G-rated products, many of the slogans and designs on the site might still be questionable for young children to see.

11 tips for social networking safety


Social networking Web sites like MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, and Windows Live Spaces are services people can use to connect with others to share information like photos, videos, and personal messages.
As the popularity of these social sites grows, so do the risks of using them. Hackers, spammers, virus writers, identity thieves, and other criminals follow the traffic.
Read these tips to help protect yourself when you use social networks.
  1. Use caution when you click links that you receive in messages from your friends on your social Web site. Treat links in messages on these sites as you would links in e-mail messages. (For more information, see Approach links in e-mail with caution.)
  2. Know what you've posted about yourself. A common way that hackers break into financial or other accounts is by clicking the "Forgot your password?" link on the account login page. To break into your account, they search for the answers to your security questions, such as your birthday, home town, high school class, father's middle name, on your social networking site. If the site allows, make up your own password questions, and don't draw them from material anyone could find with a quick search.
  3. Don't trust that a message is really from who it says it's from. Hackers can break into accounts and send messages that look like they're from your friends, but aren't. If you suspect that a message is fraudulent, use an alternate method to contact your friend to find out. This includes invitations to join new social networks.
  4. To avoid giving away e-mail addresses of your friends, do not allow social networking services to scan your e-mail address book. When you join a new social network, you might receive an offer to enter your e-mail address and password to find out if your contacts are on the network. The site might use this information to send e-mail messages to everyone in your contact list or even everyone you've ever sent an e-mail message to with that e-mail address. Social networking sites should explain that they're going to do this, but some do not.
  5. Type the address of your social networking site directly into your browser or use your personal bookmarks. If you click a link to your site through e-mail or another Web site, you might be entering your account name and password into a fake site where your personal information could be stolen.
  6. Be selective about who you accept as a friend on a social network. Identity thieves might create fake profiles in order to get information from you.
  7. Choose your social network carefully. Evaluate the site that you plan to use and make sure you understand the privacy policy. Find out if the site monitors content that people post. You will be providing personal information to this Web site, so use the same criteria that you would to select a site where you enter your credit card.
  8. Assume that everything you put on a social networking site is permanent. Even if you can delete your account, anyone on the Internet can easily print photos or text or save images and videos to a computer.
  9. Be careful about installing extras on your site. Many social networking sites allow you to download third-party applications that let you do more with your personal page. Criminals sometimes use these applications to steal your personal information. To download and use third-party applications safely, take the same safety precautions that you take with any other program or file you download from the Web. For more information, see Before you download files, help protect your computer.
  10. Think twice before you use social networking sites at work. For more information, see Be careful with social networking sites, especially at work.
  11. Talk to your kids about social networking. If you're a parent of children who use social networking sites, see How to help your kids use social Web sites more safely.

My children have received inappropriate images on their ipods


As a parent I share your concerns, however there seems to be no stopping these kind of images from showing up, unless there is a parental control option in your existing programs, todays websites are flooded with popups of lude images, even a simple cooking site had a **** link popup when I opened it. the best thing you can do is educate your children on the goings on and make them aware that a lot of the **** sites contain viruses and hacks that will delete and harm their ipods, they are tricks to lure you to open them and view more, so if they want to let hackers destroy their ipods thats what they can expect. Its hard to expose our babys to this kind of activity but education and understanding will keep them safe and make them smarter. I don't know if you share my ideas but I am glad that you show enough care to find different answers. take care and remember, we didn't come with a book of instructions for our kids, we do the best we can. Be well.

My husband keeps cracking the passwords on my cell phones( palm treo and iPhone) and retreiving information, how can i prevent this


Get divorced, just kidding. You should never keep sensitive material in your phone as criminals can use that information against you if they steal your phone. Your husband obviously knows you well enough to figure out your passwords. If you need to keep secrets from him, you should make a completely random password that means nothing to you at all. No kid's names, favorite colors, etc. you should pick something he has no knowledge of, like your favorite teacher as a child or the middle name of your great grand father. Something very obscure. Good luck

My dad blocked facebook using k9 nine web protection. unblock?


Hello, walterorlando

If your Father had used a parental control to keep you from visiting sites he'd rather you not, it says alot about the protection offered by K9 doesn't it? My advise is to listen to your Father once in your life and avoid any trouble of a wooping for breaking through that protection. Stop it, now.
