Step 1: Activate Content Advisor >>   Step 2: Limit Access to Web Sites >>   Step 3: Turn off Content Advisor

As a parent you may have concerns about the content your children encounter as they surf the Web. Internet Explorer 6 helps you safeguard your family's browsing experience with Content Advisor, which can be used to control the Web sites that your family can view. With Content Advisor, you can give your children access to a specific list of Web sites that you allow and prevent them from accessing others. Find out how to use it so you can rest easier.

To activate Content Advisor, you set yourself up as the Supervisor of Content with a password. Don't lose it!

1. On the Internet Explorer Tools menu, click Internet Options.
2. Click the Content tab, and click the Enable button.

3. In the Content Advisor box, click the General tab, and then click the Create Password button.

4. In the Create Supervisor Password box, type the password you want to use.

5. In the Confirm Password box, type the same password again.
Internet Explorer requires this to make sure you haven't made a typing error.

6. In the Hint box, type a hint to help you remember your password, and then click OK.
Make sure the hint is one your child won't know the answer to. If you can't come up with something, leave it blank. (But then, of course, you're on your own if you forget the password!)

7. Click OK in response to the message about Content Advisor, and then click OK once more.
Now every time you bump into Content Advisor's protective walls, you'll need to type the supervisor password to get through.

Be careful! Don't lose your password. To turn off Content Advisor or make any changes whatsoever, you'll need your supervisor password. Store it in a child-proof place away from your computer.
