Hi. I'm looking for a way to blacklist some websites on my macbook pro (10.6). I've found a few options but none of them work or can just be bypassed.


The selfcontrol app is nice but works on a timer, not a constant block. http://selfcontrolapp.com/

I've found multiple tutorials on how to block stuff with the terminal but this can also be undone easily. http://masonsklut.co...using-terminal/

The built-in parental controls can only be applied to non administrator accounts, which I don't want on my computer.


Are there any other options? I would really appreciate any help.

You might take a look at Intego's Family Protector. I have not used this version of their "parental controls" software, but I do have previous incarnation ContentBarrier X6 (it came with the bundle that I purchased). I don't really use it, but I did fire it up and it does look like you can block specific sites all the time AND you can password protect it with a different password than the admin account...or with the admin account's password. So, it might do what you need.

I suspect that there are many other parental control applications that will do what you want as well.
