Because you need to protect your computers!!!

what is k9 and what can it do
What is K9 and What Can It Do?

K9 is a free web protecting software that will allow you to set limits and boundaries on your internet.

    • You can create settings that allow you to visit websites based on types or you can set up specific web addresses to allow or forbid.
  • It is used in addition to the school established firewalls that the students are able to bypass.
    • I have not had any students who have been able to get around the K9 settings.
  • It also helps to protect your computer from malware and phishing.
    • It filters out spyware and malware and prevents it from coming in and disrupting your computer.

  • Moderate – Protects against adult content, security threats, and illegal activity
  • Minimal – Protects against pornography and security threats

making changes
Making Changes:
  • You can make changes to your K9 settings at any time including your e-mail address and passwords by simply clicking on the sidebar.
    • It is essential that your e-mail address and password are kept private to ensure that your students are not able to make changes to the computers without your knowing
  • Make sure you always click save after making changes to ensure that the computer stores them.
  • At this time you are going to have the opportunity to go on the K9 website, look around, ask questions, and even get started.
  • If you need any help, I would be happy to aid you in any way I can!
