The one stop for all of your internet management needs!
As a father of two teenagers, a husband, and a Christian, I can tell you that the fight for moral purity is real. The days of innocence, of playing in the mood and getting out there are long gone for many families. The internet is a tool and using it for God’s honor and glory can be great and mighty. Yet, inspired by Satan, it continues to be the very means to destroy the faith and bodies of millions every day.
WebFilter can help you bring accountability and safety to the vast un charted waters of the internet. Here is how…
“Nearly always on: Since 2000, time spent online every week by an average American has risen from 9.4 hours to 23.6. Of that, time spent ogling the internet at home has risen from 3.3 to 17.6 hours a week over the same period. That’s a lot of screen time.” (MIT Technology Review, 23 Jan. 2018.)
And just what are people doing during this time?
Social media, YouTube, Music, online gaming, pornography, cyberbullying, etc. is taking the time of most. Is this helpful for us? Absolutely no!
“Yes, the Internet Is Taking Up Time You Used To Spend With Actual People” (CityLab, 23 Oct. 2013.)
WebFilter helps you by allowing you to define clear boundaries of where it is acceptable to go and where it is not. Let’s use our time with that matters most, God and our loved ones. Let us use it do something useful and tangible.

Have you noticed that it's so hard to stop watching YouTube? That next Ad or video looks just like what you were looking for. Sometimes curiosity kills the cat and one video leads to the next while precious time is slipping through our fingers. Many times, the material learned is not of a wholesome nature, it has an evil trait of character, and ill ideas and misconception fill the mind. This is not to mention, gossiping, cyberbullying, porn and a host of other character deforming habits which are fed every day by people watching.
Let’s face it, if you have fallen into the trap of being an internet junky or addict, you need help. This is just what an accountability partner (AP) is here to do.
Your AP is someone you choose and trust, who will work with you by clearing defining the line of what is acceptable and what is not. Usually a Godly parent, pastor, friend or family member. Your AP will encourage and counsel you in this life journey to make wise and sound decisions is only allowing the best for you. All this can be done with WebFilter via the internet so you both do not need to be in the same place.
One of the biggest challenges I had as a parent of teens, is that some of the courses require reading and watching things out of the internet, particularly watching videos on YouTube. I tested every software in the market, searching for something that would allow me to only see what I needed, the video for school, and not the rest. This search was in vain. God gave me the wisdom to create WebFilter as a solution for my family and yours.
WebFilter allows you to see only one video out of YouTube but not the rest. It works with Vimeo and more content sites will be added as our users have demand for it. This worked out very well so that they could click on the link provided by the school but not be tempted to watch the rest. Simple, but powerful!
