Working with user accounts

The window has three tabs:

General

First, Select a system account from your computer. The restrictions set in Parental control only affect standard Windows accounts. Administrative accounts can override restrictions.

If the account is used by a parent, select Parent account.

Set the Child birthdate of the user this account belongs to to determine their level of access and set access rules for age-appropriate web pages.

Exceptions

Creating an exception can permit or deny a user access to websites not on the exceptions list. This is useful if you want to control access to specific websites instead of using categories. Exceptions created for one account can be copied and used for another account. This can be helpful when you want to create identical rules for children of similar age.

Click Add to create a new exception. Specify the Action (for example, Block) using the drop-down menu, type the Website URL this exception applies to and then click OK. The exception will be added to the list of existing exceptions with its state shown.

Add – Creates a new exception.

Edit – You can edit the Website URL or the Action of the selected exception.

Remove – Removes the selected exception.

Copy – Select a user from drop-down menu from which you want to copy created exception.

PANEL_PARENTAL_WEB_EXCEPTIONS

Exceptions defined override the categories defined for the selected account(s). For example, if the account has the News category blocked but you have defined a news webpage as an allowed exception, the account can access the allowed webpage. You can view any changes made here in the Exceptions section.

Categories

In the Categories tab, you can define the general categories of websites that you want to block or allow for each account. Engage the switch next to a category to allow it. If you leave the switch off, the category will not be allowed for that account.

Copy – Lets you copy a list of blocked or allowed categories from an existing modified account.
