Protect yourself from inappropriate or offensive content. tinyFilter is a strong web content filtering extension for Chrome.
The Internet is full of content; sometimes its useful, and sometimes its unwanted or even offensive. Such offensive content could, for example, make your child feel uncomfortable or upset or even affect their psyche. It could also spoil your favorite TV show before you see the finale.
tinyFilter is indispensable for users who have small children and want to protect them from websites with inappropriate content. But tinyFilter does not emphasize the blocking of pornographic material only. It can be used for other purposes as well: in companies, universities, schools and colleges, or just to keep yourself spoiler-free of something…
HOW IT WORKS
tinyFilter is based on a “detect-and-block” method. As with any other content filter, tinyFilter follows predefined rules to filter a variety of web sites. Additionally, this extension provides a profanity filter to mask words that may be offensive to the user.
tinyFilter also provides support for list subscriptions. The List Subscription is a text file used to maintain the filter's lists up-to-date and, for bandwidth's sake, it is updated every 72 hours. These subscriptions are recommended to those users who prefer using someone else's filtering rules without having to adjust their own settings. If necessary, the user may generate and maintain his/her own list subscription.
The various lists can be customized to suit the needs of the users.
This extension includes password-protection, requiring a password to be entered to change the settings.
