Internet Filtering Software Shootout - PCSTATS
Abstract: On one side we have the advocates for Internet control and monitoring, and on the other side we have those who do not want to regulate or monitor the content on the Internet.

ClickSafe 1.0

 ClickSafe 1.0 is also similar in operation as the BAIR. It uses filtering technology to distinguish content. Unlike the BAIR which still uses allow/deny lists in conjunction with its AI, ClickSafe does not use any type of lists. According to the company, ClickSafe operates in real time, and it can recognize inappropriate content on the fly.

ClickSafe has the most simple and easy to use interface out of all of them. You can enable it/ disable it, change the password and insert your own list of block/allow list. As far as we could tell, ClickSafe is only able to allow/deny access to the web.

In other words, if you are looking for protection from e-mail, Usenet, IRC, or even local control, you should look elsewhere. The other thing that caught us by surprise was the fact that there was no cost associated with this product. It was a free download for the personal edition. Not even a subscription fee.

Here's a snapshot of the ClickSafe interface. The four buttons you see on the right hand side are the only configuration options.

Let's see how ClickSafe performed in our independent tests:

Pornographic Sites Blocked


Appropriate Sites Allowed:


ClickSafe 1.0 performed superbly compared to all the other solutions. The funny thing about this whole situation is the fact that ClickSafe is FREE! With 90% success in blocking inappropriate content, it makes for the best solution around. This one's filtering technology actually works. ClickSafe's website boasted success rate of 99% in blocking out inappropriate content. At 90% we are not too far off from the advertised ratio.
