What is the best way to restrict access to adult content?

Creating an additional hierarchy. And as I've read in other forums, all of this isn't anything new. There's a huge amount of trust required of IT staff - they literally hold the keys to the kingdom. This guy is trustworthy - it was a rookie, immature mistake - he can be trained.

This is one of the things that we have right in the technical policy that all of our staff sign (and those on our BYOD network accept every week). We describe exactly what our policies are, what our capabilities are, and then the IT department's promises to our users.

As far as the situation that you described, the way that I have things setup is with what amounts to a 4 layer system. The full-on Domain administrator account still exists in our system, but it's secured with a 30 character random password that's stored in a KeyPassX database that is suitably protected, with the passphrase kept in a sealed envelope in the organization's safe, in case I should get hit by a bus or some...

Do you know who is visiting your website? And, more importantly, does the demographic of your visitors even matter? For some businesses and bloggers, that answer is a resounding: YES.

If you’re reading this, you probably have (or need to implement) an age requirement restriction for visitors to your site. There are a variety of reasons for needing to restrict access to your content, but there are only a handful of ways you can go about enforcing this.

In this article, I’ll explore reasons why you may want to consider restricting access and some steps and tools for stricter regulation of your content—for your audience’s sake as well as your own.

Age Verification Restrictions: Does Your Site Need Them?

The world is a much different place than it was a couple decades ago. With the rise of digital technology and always-on access, anyone with an internet-enabled device can gain access to your site. While this has done wonders for businesses looking to...

Preventing your child from accessing adult content on the home iPad or computers can be one of the more challenging issues that parents have to face in the age of the digital revolution. Many parents have no idea how to restrict adult content, and may also not be aware that their child maybe already accessing pornography online, until strange popups and advertising or adult content spam starts appearing all over the home computer. It is one of the most difficult problems that I have to help parents with, due to the complexity of adult content filtering settings and often due to the ability of children to be able to get around parental controls.

As more and more children get their own iPods and smart phones at a younger age, it is likely that more children will be exposed to adult content in their own homes. In Australia we do not have an national internet filter as the UK do. There are certainly restrictions on internet child abuse material and some violent sexual abuse, but...

Looking to publish premium courses or some informational product? You might want to restrict WordPress content just those readers/members who pay for it. And hide content for general visitors. With WordPress, you can easily protect such information using the various content restriction means that WordPress supports right out of the box or with the help of plugins.

We’ll go over these different methods in this article. We’ll discuss:

It’s true, Easy Digital Downloads is the world’s easiest way to sell digital downloads for free. Many of our users sell images, WordPress themes and plugins, eBooks, and even computer software in their digital stores.

That’s great for those who need to distribute files, but what about our users who need to sell access to content? For example, what happens if your products are in the form of articles, or perhaps streaming videos? Thanks to the extensible nature of Easy Digital Downloads, we have the world’s easiest solution for selling that too.

Let’s have a look at the Content Restriction extension and how to use it to sell access to content alongside (or not) digital files.

What is Content Restriction?

The Content Restriction extension provides a straightforward process for restricting access to content based on purchases through Easy Digital Downloads.

A basic example of this functionality and its usefulness would be requiring that your site...

Parental Controls, also known as Restrictions, allow you to set what your children can and can't access on an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. With Parental Controls, you can lock out Safari, Camera, FaceTime, Siri, AirDrop, CarPlay, the iTunes, iBooks, Podcasts, or App Stores (including in-app purchases), as well as content by age rating, and the ability to make changes to accounts and other app settings. In other words, they're a way to block your child's access to anything and everything you deem inappropriate for them based on their age and sensitivity, and your own best judgment. And they're part of what make Apple devices an ideal computing platform for kids!

One of the parental control features on the iPod touch (and iPad and iPhone) is restriction by content rating. Today I want to specifically focus on app restrictions. Apps have ratings similar to movie ratings — G, PG, PG-13 and R. You can decide which apps your kids can download from the App store or iTunes based on their rating.

What are the ratings?

Here are descriptions of the ratings, straight out of iTunes.

4+ Applications in this category contain no objectionable material.

9+ Applications in this category may contain mild or infrequent occurrences of cartoon, fantasy or realistic violence, and infrequent or mild mature, suggestive, or horror-themed content which may not be suitable for children under the age of 9.

12+ Applications in this category may also contain infrequent mild language, frequent or intense cartoon, fantasy or realistic violence, and mild or infrequent mature or suggestive themes, and simulated gambling which may not be...

[Updated from original post in May 2012]

There used to be a YouTube app on every Apple device. The app icon looked like an old-style TV – remember that? Then Apple dropped their native YouTube app in 2012 with the introduction of iOS 6. In a way that was bad for parents, because in the previous version it was easy enough to block YouTube using Restriction settings. In devices that run iOS 6 or higher (which is most of them these days), it is a bit more complicated.

There are (at least) two ways to access YouTube on an iPod touch, iPad or iPhone:

YouTube website – mobile website in the Safari browser or another web browserYouTube app – Google’s own YouTube app, which must be downloaded from the app store.

If you don’t want your child accessing YouTube, then you must restrict both of these options.

Here’s how.

Step One: Restrict the YouTube website

There are a few ways to restrict the YouTube website. You may need to try out each one to find...

Want to manage your diabetes this way? FDA says no. Action Alert!

“Medical foods,” by federal definition, aren’t simply a diet plan prescribed by a doctor. They are foods that are specifically formulated and processed for a sick patient. They form a separate category from conventional foods and dietary supplements in that they are intended to meet specific nutritional requirements for the management of a disease or condition, and are used under medical supervision. These foods can be consumed orally or through a feeding tube.

Medical foods do not require FDA premarket approval. Manufacturers of such foods can make disease claims, which means they are exempt from the labeling requirement for health claims with its demand for random controlled trials. Medical foods do, however, have to follow current good manufacturing practices (cGMPs), facility registration, and other normal safety requirements.

The FDA has just issued an updated draft guidance on medical...
