Web Filtering on your Norton Core router allows you to manage websites that are accessible to each of its child accounts in multiple ways:
By Category
You can restrict access to certain pre-defined categories of websites via your router.
By Specific Site
You can manually restrict access to specific websites you do not wish your children to have access to.
By Notification
Notifications are generated to alert you when an attempt to access restricted content happens. These notifications allow you to decide on a case-by-case basis whether to allow or continue to block that access.

No parental control system is 100% perfect. The best solution is active, engaged parenting; working with your child to ensure they develop good habits through your instruction and guidance.
