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.

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

      • RayRay commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This is absolutely essential. Please respond to your users sooner rather than later, it's not really believable it should take 4 years to "investigate" this feature.

        User profiles are essential, not only for kids, but to distinguish between me and my wife. I would love to restrict myself on time of day, sites, etc...but can't because my wife has to enter a password for every site or time of day that's not allowed in the settings. In the end she just turns the restrictions off due to inconvenience, and this is no help to me. I would be very grateful if you were to provide separate users, and settings for each user.

        Thanks so much!

        This is crazy. Multi-user support is a must when you have adults and children sharing the same computer!

        The Per user settings is the most powerful feature which is missing and the such gap prevents me to use K9 in my Computer School.
        I love K9.

      • BryanBryan commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I even tried setting up logon and logoff scripts in users local group policy that would start or stop the K9 service depending on whether I wanted the filtering to apply to that user or not. That doesn't work though because killing the service blocks everything :-(

        Thought this software was great until I logged onto my own profile and found that I can't use the internet for anything.

        Going to have to uninstall and find something that will apply settings to my kids profiles only.

        Sorry guys.

        I can't use this if I can't tailor it to different users which is really disappointing because it came highly recommended.

      • EllenEllen commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I would love to see this feature. I would love to block social networking on my daughter's profile.

        Just downloaded this product and the first thing I wanted to do was set up different user accounts. I can't do that???? Bummer...I would definitely pay for a product that has that!!! Not sure if I'll continue to use this now or not. :o(

      • AndyAndy commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Any ideas on a time frame with this feature - I notice it's been listed for 5 years ?

      • YZYZ commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        So current release doesn't have feature of filtering based on different users on same computer, correct?

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Mmmm... under review since June 2011 ??? You're kidding ! Do you really believe I have one dedicated PC per child in my house ?
        I'll stick with Norton family until this feature is implemented.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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?

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

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