I suggest you ...

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.

        I am the only one saying that this is a GOOD thing. It is a life saver for me! The fact that the same filtering profile is the same for all users is wonderful. It prevents a bypass. Currently if one is using a different web filter and is trying to be honorable with his/her eyes on the internet and they are the windows admin, it can easily be bypassed simply by creating another user account. I hope K9 keeps this feature. Please keep it K9 or if a release is made available, leave the option for either master control or user account config. Thanks!

        Putting in my vote for this feature as well, won't use the software without it, one computer for 4 people. Doesn't make sense to filter them all the same.

        Can I apply K9 Protection only for one Use account keeping my administrator account unprotected

      • Jon GlickJon Glick commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I'm wondering too. I have a shared computer with a separate user account for the kids, and I want the filter settings to be different for them than for the account my wife and I use.

        Hi all. So the last response was Jun 6of 2011 more than 4 years ago. Any headway?

      • YanYan commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        With this feature enabled i think it will help
        a lot, like filtering the kid's user's and the
        parents users like "Administrator" unrestricted access.

      • AlexAlex commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Any news? Can't find this feature in the latest version, Nov. 2015

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Considering the app and the website still cite 2009/2010 information/data, I'm not surprised this feature is still "under development." People are chiming in every few weeks asking for this! What's the deal?

      • OrigamiOrigami commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Same as all the other comments.
        I need to be able to set different configurations for the adults and the kids.
        And come on, June 2011. We are October 2015 !
        Why is it so difficult to add this function ?

        Please, please, please, please !

        I use my PC for work nearly every day. I probably spend close to 35 hours a week on my PC, and my wife another 5 or so. My son uses maybe 2 hours. Having to set the same policy for everyone regardless of which account it logged in when it only needs to apply to the minority users is a deal breaker. Otherwise, this is a great application that actually ended up catching some spyware on my PC that nothing else did.

        I just started using this program as my older son was using it before to keep himself from going places he shouldn't. It is very annoying having to set it to supervisor mode just to work on my own computer that I share with my 13 year old for his homeschooling purposes. Why has this not been implemented before now...June 2011?!

      • SteveSteve commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I can't see the point in having this software without this feature.

        Hello,
        I am looking for a solution to this issue myself and I see in June of 2011 you were working on this, so do we have the ability to use groups yet? I am new to K9, but I am very hopeful this software will work for us.

        Cheers

        Have you been working on this feature for 4+ years????? Completely useless without this feature. Actually I shouldn't say feature - I should say standard offering. How could you not sup[port multiple accounts on 1 PC? Ir's 2015 .... holy moly

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This is definitely needed and one of the main reasons why I am not using this software.

      • BobBob commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I have 2 kids that use the same laptop and would like to allow different privileges per user. I could see this as an awesome addition.

        Thanks

      • JackJack commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Please add different filtering policy for each user profile configured on same computer, especially for parents and kids sharing the same computer.
