            • Create a version of K9 for Windows Phone

              A version should be created for all smartphones and internet enabled devices. A quick app could be created in each instance to enable complete safety to all users everywhere. I am sure you could strike a deal with Microsoft / Apple to be included with there o/s on all new computers as well to make all devised more secure.

                We are still reviewing this as a potential product. We have had many more request for Android, so we would probably work on Windows Phone some time after that.

                Thank you all for your patience, and for your suggestions to help improve K9 Web Protection!

                    We would like to investigate this for a future release of K9. However, since different Linux distributions have different APIs and programming/distribution requirements, please make sure you include which distribution you would like supported in your comments.

                    • Ability to restrict access and report by "total time", not "time(s) of day"

                      Life never runs on a perfectly timed schedule, so setting up the access schedule, like you offer in the 'Custom' option under 'Time Restrictions' section, is completely impractical, at least to me.

                      All I want is to be able to say, "you have x hours/minutes of online access per day" -- I don't care if it's in the morning, at night or is split into several 10-minute or 15-minute portions throughout the day; I just want an ability to restrict the TOTAL access time. This is the critical one that's forcing me go back to NetNanny (which I don't like,…

                        This is actually a great idea, and one that we have considered adding – however, the question arises of how you determine “total time” (programmatically).

                        For example, if a person loads up a web page, the time it takes to load is short (just seconds) – but they could spend minutes, or even hours reading that page. How much time would loading that single page count as? What if they load a page, and then step away from their computer (leaving the browser open), and come back 2 hours later. They then read the page for 15 minutes, and click on a link. When the second page is loaded, do we assume that they have been browsing for 2 hours and 15 minutes (because that’s how long it’s been between requests), or how do you calculate?

                        This is even complicated more, since many websites (such as Facebook) now use AJAX

                      • Real-time Blacklist/Whitelist of page content

                        Should have the ability to use regular expression options for phrase blocking. For example, the word 'true' and 'blood' have no meaning if it is used separately, but, 'true blood' refers to the tv series that contain violence and pornography.

                            This is a feature we are considering adding in a future release of K9 – however, we are wondering if people want it more for “Save/Restore” functionality (for backup purposes), “Share” functionality (to share, for example, white or black lists with friends), or “Central Management” functionality (to keep multiple K9 installations in-sync with one another).

                            Please give your feedback and suggestions as comments. Also, if you are looking for “Centralized Management” functionality, you may want to also add your votes to the “Remote/Central Management” idea at https://k9webprotection.uservoice.com/forums/84793-general/suggestions/1206565-remote-central-administration

                                This is an interesting idea, and one we will consider. The issue here is that there isn’t a way to have “different” icons for the iPhone app – that is, the interface doesn’t exist for us to provide users with the option for choosing an icon…we could, however, change the icon for all users.

                              • add time delay option for administrator

                                I think many users (like myself) use K9 for self-control issues on the internet. I think it would be a great feature (which you could turn on/off) that would allow a customizable "time delay" (e.g., 5 mins, 15 mins, 30 mins, 1 hour, 5 hours) between entering the admin password to change settings, and when you are allowed to actually access the settings.

                                This would help people with self-control issues, when they are also the administrator, and they find themselves simply going into the settings and entering admin mode whenever they want.

                                I wouldn't think this would be too hard…

                                    This is a good idea – however, there are many flaws to this approach…it is extremely easy to bypass, and doesn’t provide as good of malware and spyware protection (since many malware apps are IP-address based – and don’t use DNS).

                                    Solutions, such as OpenDNS are great – but are technologically limited, and can’t provide the level of security that you have come to expect from K9 Web Protection and Blue Coat.

                                    We are, however, continuing to investigate various network-based solutions (DNS being one of them).

                                    Please allow the Nvidia Geforce Experience to work. When one tries to open the program (that is 100% safe, only has to do with PC graphics cards) a message saying "Failed to initialize EasyAPI" appears. Other users of K9 and Nvidia software experience the same issue.

                                    • To make it possible to block new keywords without requiring password

                                      I really enjoyed your iniciative to make it possible for the user to block other websites without having to log into the K9 account using the password.
                                      I suggest you to do the same about the keywords. It happens that we choose some keywords to be blocked, but later, by using internet daily, we find other keywords which also must be blocked.
                                      It would be very helpful to turn it an easier process, don't you agree?
                                      Thanks.

                                      • Study/nuclear mode

                                        Add a study/nuclear mode where all internet access can be denied temporarily (ie 3 hours)

                                          I would like to be able to set the page the browser opens when it launches.
