Using Parental Control in Kaspersky Internet Security 2014 you can control and restrict users' access to websites based on their content.

You can allow/block a user from visiting all websites except a list of those you add as an exception; or you can block all websites in a specific category, e.g. weapons-related.

When Control Web Browsing is enabled you can view a summary of browsing statistics and a detailed report about which websites have been visited.

How to restrict access to websites

In order to restrict users' access to websites, do the following:

  1. Open Kaspersky Internet Security 2014.
  2. Click the up arrow in the window.

  1. Click Parental Control in the list of components.

  1. In the Parental Control window, click the desired account.

  1. In the Parental Control window, click the Settings link in the Internet block.

  1. If you want to block the user's access to certain categories of websites, select Adult websites.
  2. Click the Select categories of websites link.

  1. In the Block access to website categories window, set the checkboxes next to the categories that you want to block.
  2. Click the back arrow.

  1. If you want to block the user's access to all websites except those that you add to a list of exceptions, select All websites except those authorized in the exception list.
  2. Click the Add exception link.

  1. In the Exclusions window, click Add .

  1. In the Add new website window, enter the website's address in the URL field, formatted like this: http://www.site.com/*. The asterisk in the address template represents any sequence of symbols.
  2. Select the action that you want the application to perform:
    • Allow.
    • Block.
  3. Select the scope:
    • Only the specified page.
    • Entire website.
  1. Click Add.
  2. Close the Exclusions window.

  1. Close the application window.

If the address template being added to the list of allowed or blocked websites includes "*", "?", or "\", use an extra "\" symbol when entering them. Otherwise, the "*", "?", or "\" in the address will be interpreted as a special character and not part of the address. For example, if you add the address www.site?anti-virus, then when adding the address the address template would look like this: www.site\?anti-virus .
