Default Internet Filter/Tracker??

Please Login to Remove!

Just wandering if there is an app or something out there that will allow me to block certain websites?

Maybe there is something out there that would allow others to see what websites were visited.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Why are you trying to "block certain sites"?

Is this your device or does it belong to someone else?

I don't want to sound like a jerk but I don't think knowing why I want to "block" or track web use is really what we are discussing here....I was just curious to see if there was any way of doing that.

It is my device, so I am not trying to do something that might be illegal.

Well, the reason that I asked is that people often come in and want to block or track the internet traffic on their child's device. There are no parental controls for BlackBerry devices. The best control in that situation is to not give the device to the child.

So, yes knowing "why" is pertinent to the discussion because it often leads to the "what" and "how".

If it is your device, then the best advice is to just not go to those sites you want to block.

How about a little self-control for limiting access? Until we know different I'm assuming the user is afraid of wasting his/her time visiting porn sites all day. Seems reasonable.
