OpenDNS provides free web content filtering

about OpenDNS and OpenDNS Updater · · Helpful Not helpful 2 Helpful Report as spam

OpenDNS includes free web content filtering and parental controls and thereby provides a functionally similar service to Net Nanny, K9 Web Protection and others. You do need to keep your IP address updated with OpenDNS Updater for this feature to work. The advantage is, that your whole network is protected and you do not need to install filtering software on each computer. The filtering is sufficient for us and quite good, but not as good as K9 Web Protection.

There is are some major problems with OpenDNS.
Fires it is not opensource, as the name would imply.
Second, as always on the internet, if you are not the customer, you are the product. Using OpenDNS means that you send EVERYTHING of your traffic directly to OpenDNS. This means that OpenDNS then knows every website you are surfing to at what time you did.


OpenDNS is my primary DDNS.

My router's TomatoUSB firmware has the ability to set up two DDNS services. OpenDNS is the first entry.
