K9 Web Protection is a free software Internet-filtering and parental control system provided by Blue Coat. K9 allows you to block or restrict sites that you do not want others to access while having the ability to override those sites by using your administrator's password. You cannot get an administrator's password without downloading the software, but you can get an additional administrator's password if you want to use K9 on another computer, according to K9 Web Protection (see References).
