Add Support for Multiple User Profiles

Currently, K9 Web Protection will apply the same filtering policy for all user profiles configured on your computer. This feature is to add different filtering rules for each user.

        Seems like an obvious one, no? For a free product, software is awesome, but was surprised this feature was not already incorporated

      • MommygirlMommygirl commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I installed and ran under my own windows user login, and it filtered beautifully. However, when I went to the 'visitor' user my kids use, NO FILTERING!! Was I supposed to initially set it up on their user login?

        Any word on this? Not having this feature is making it really hard to keep using K-9

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        unfortunately the lack of the multi user profile resulted in my uninstalling this promising software

      • Pam ShorePam Shore commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Are there any updates for this idea? I would REALLY like to see this happen soon!

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This feature needs to be applied.
        It is the only way I will use this program. I personally feel at my age I don't need my Web surfing sensored but for my young kids it's a MUST!

      • AlexandraAlexandra commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I would also be nice if the Internet access could be TOTALLY blocked for certain users, whilst other users can still access all web content.

        I had to remove K9 after a few minutes when realising it is useless on shared computers. Such a shame

      • savannaGsavannaG commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I agree. This is very important! I do not have a computer specifically for my children and when I use K9 I have to keep changing the settings everytime I login/logout from my user!

      • WilliamWilliam commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Wow. nearly 3 years and no progress on this? no posts indicating intent to do something? Seriously? Like so many others who posted, I am going to remove K9 from our PC now. What a shame, it seemed like such a great program.

      • TomTom commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I'd like to suggest a means by which K9 may be configured for different user profiles on the same computer.
        My laptop has 2 adults and one child using it; i'd like to make different levels of protection for the adults vs. the children

        I was shocked, wenn I recognized, that I can not filter separately my family members (different windows users)...
        How can I use then the software???

      • mojoliciousmojolicious commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I downloaded K9 in January 2009. From an hour's testing on one of my daughter's user account I was confident that this was the perfect solution: far, far superior to OS X's feeble parental controls, and to the two similar third party products I'd tried.

        Then I went back into my own user account and discovered that I was locked down too, and that there was no support for multiple users. Yep. A product designed for families that cannot work on a 'family computer'.

        Straight in the trash.

        Was just checking back to see if this had been addressed, but sadly the problem is still there.

        Such a shame. If multiple user support was in place I'd happily pay $50 for a licence.

        I have two users on my computer, one for personal and one for work. I wanted to use it for my personal filtering, but not for my work filtering. I found a business sites that I could not logon to (jwplayer.com) even when I put it in the settings as an allowed website. I had to uninstall it to be able to login to do business on that site.
