Tech talk: CleanBrowsing is a DNS-based filter that prevents adult content from being loaded. It doesn't require any software instalation and can be easily enabled anywhere by switching your DNS servers to the ones we provide. On its basic form, all you have to do is switch your nameservers to 185.228.168.168 - or follow the steps bellow.



Step 1

Child Proofing your Windows

Activating CleanBrowsing on Windows is pretty simple and takes less than 2 minutes. We have tested the following instructions on Windows 10, 2012 and 2016, but should work even on older versions. The first step requires you to open the command prompt as Administrator by going to the sidebar, choosing the command prompt and "Run as Administrator":

Step 2

Use the netsh command

Inside the command prompt, copy and paste the following command to change your DNS for the "Wi-Fi" interface:

netsh interface ipv4 set dns "Wi-Fi" static 185.228.168.168 primary
netsh interface ipv4 add dns "Wi-Fi" 185.228.168.169 index=2

If there is no warning, it means the change succeeded. You can confirm it was modified by running:

netsh interface ip show config

And it should list our IP addresses under the "Statically Configured DNS Servers". If the command fails, it means that your Interface is not named "Wi-Fi". Try changing it to "Wireless Network Connection" to see if it works:

netsh interface ipv4 set dns "Wireless Network Connection" static 185.228.168.168 primary
netsh interface ipv4 add dns "Wireless Network Connection" 185.228.168.169 index=2

And that's pretty much it. Your computer will automatically start using CleanBrowsing.
