A+ Premium Filtering filters the internet on a third party server rather than on the user's computer. It filters internet addresses, links and key word searches by routing what you have typed or clicked on through the external server where it gets checked against a pre-generated access list. If the site you're trying to visit is not on the access list, you get a block screen instead of a page full of pornography. This software also has the ability to scan and block chatrooms and newsgroups.

On a positive note, A+ Premium Filtering takes all of the work out of internet filtering for you due to the fact that the access lists are already in place and provided for you. Nor is there any need to maintain the program by downloading and installing updates - the provider also takes care of that. All a user has to do is sit back and let the application do its job.

The flipside is that their system takes the access list decision making out of your hands, which some users might find a little restricting and inflexible. There is a process available for users to submit sites for review that they may wish to access, however there's no guarantee that the requested site will be removed from the block list.

A+ Premium Filtering users are charged on a subscription basis. The rate is fairly low, which should make this product easily affordable to most families and businesses. Unlike many other internet filtering software, this program is compatible with the Mac environment.
