What Is Web Unlock

 

Web Unlock is designed to help parents customize their child's web experience. Web Unlock enables parents to override AOL's web filtering settings and allow or block specific individual web sites. With Web Unlock a parent can decide if a site is appropriate or not appropriate for their child to view online.

How does Webunlock work

 

Web Unlock blocks or allows children access to specific websites. Kids can request access from KW: Web Unlock or the Website restricted message. An e-mail will be sent to you with the website requested and comments from your child. A parent can allow or block these requested sites, or any other sites they choose, at KW: Parental Controls.
