Chapter 29. Internet Security > Controlling Access to Undesirable Content

Controlling Access to Undesirable Content

Not every site on the Internet is worth visiting. Some, in fact, are downright offensive. That situation can present a problem at home, where children run the risk of accidentally stumbling across depictions of sex, violence, and other inappropriate content. It's also potentially a problem at the office, where offensive or inappropriate content can drain productivity and expose a corporation to legal liability in the form of sexual harassment suits.

Internet Explorer includes a feature called the Content Advisor, which uses an industrywide rating system called Recreational Software Advisory Council rating service for the Internet (RSACi). This rating system can be used to restrict the types of content that can be displayed within the borders of your browser. Before you can use the Content Advisor, you have to enable it: Choose View, Internet Options, click the Content tab, and click the Enable button. You have to enter a supervisor's password before continuing. After you've handled those housekeeping chores, you see the main Content Advisor window, shown in Figure 29.25.
