K9 Web Protection is an internet filtering program that enables parents to customize what they want their children to view and access online. K9 filters via category settings, keywords, search engine restrictions and a user-modifyable blacklist of addresses.

K9 uses a commercial-grade filtering solution, which is s a combination of a central database and dynamic page-rating technology. This program is quite flexible and its free to download. Users can also request multiple copies for multiple computers. However, unlike competitor products on the market, K9 is only a web filter - it's features don't include functions such as filtering and blocking of emails, newsgroups, chat and instant messages.

The developers of K9 are currently porting the program for use on Mac systems.
