Users and Groups
iProtectYou allows you to set up different levels of restrictions for each member of your family
depending on their maturity, interest, habits and parental control needs.
The level of Internet access can be set from no restriction for you as administrator to total prohibition.
The iProtectYou application identifies a user by the same login name the
user enters when he/she logs in to Windows. If you did not add a new login onto the user list
of iProtectYou, the program will add them automatically to the "Guests" group.
Please note that users of computers, where iProtectYou's Client version is installed, will not be displayed
in the "Guests" group of the "Users and Groups" page of the Server computer.
If necessary, users of Client versions might be added into the "Guests" group or any other group.
The program will automatically add the administrator who did the iProtectYou installation into the "Administrators" group.
iProtectYou software contains the following built-in users groups:
- Administrators: Built-in account for administering iProtectYou. Please note, that all unregistered computer administrators who did the iProtectYou installation will be added to this group automatically.
- Guests: Built-in account for guest access to the Internet. Please note that all unregistered users will be added to this group automatically.
- Users: Built-in account for restricted users.
To temporarily disable the iProtectYou program for a selected group or user without losing your settings,
mark the "Disable iProtectYou" check box. The iProtectYou icon in the system tray near the clock should change its color to gray.
To temporarily switch off the Internet for a group or user, mark the "Disable Internet" check box.
All future attempts to connect to the internet for the selected group or user will be blocked. The icon in the system tray near the clock should change its color to red.
Select "Don't show iProtectYou warnings" if you do not want to receive iProtectYou
warning messages. Please keep in mind that without such a warning the user will not know that a resource has been blocked.
However, you can always review the full protocol of all blocked resources and reasons for
those blockages in the log files. You can select the most appropriate warning from these two possibilities:
amusing, child-friendly pop-ups for your kids or respectable auto-hiding pop-ups for your associates.
You can set up your own warning message instead of those provided by default.
To preview a Custom Warning, click on the "Test" button.
If you mark the "Show custom warning" checkbox, but leave it empty,
iProtectYou will not display any message at all.
Keep in mind that without such warning, the user will not know that a resource has been blocked.
However, you can always review the full protocol of all blocked resources and reasons for those
blockages in the log files.
You can select one from several entertaining themes for a series of images that will accompany
warning messages. Click on the "Preview" button to view all available themes.
You can keep a group description in this field.
Enable filtering at startup
To enable the iProtectYou filtering for a selected group, when the program startup, mark the "Always enable filtering at startup" checkbox.
Enable strict filter for search engines
The iProtectYou integrates with "Safe Search" options found in popular search engines such as
Google, MSN, Yahoo, etc. This means your children can't search on a search engine and even see links to blocked sites.
Forbid images section for search engines
This feature enables better protection against any images when doing an "image only" search.
Add new group and new user
To add a new group or new user, click the "New Group" or "New User" button. To delete an existing group or user from the list,
use the "Delete" button. To rename the group or user name, use the "Rename" button.
You cannot delete or rename the following groups: 'Administrators', 'Guests' and 'Users'.
iProtectYou application identifies a user by the same login
name the user enters when he logs in to Windows. If you did not add a new login onto the
user list of iProtectYou, the program ads them automatically
to the "Guests" group. We recommend forbidding Internet access for the "Guests" group, if you do not want
somebody from your family to work on the Internet anonymously.
