Are you controlling my eBlocker through a central server?

| Raphael Schulz

Can I change or extend the eBlocker’s filter lists?

| Raphael Schulz

You can create individual exception rules for filtering with the eBlocker Pro and eBlocker Family. With the eBlocker Family, you can also define your own filter lists and blocking rules as part of the Parental Control feature. Thus you have always full control over the content in your home network.
