Wi free a bit different



  • Is it possible to make the Wi free program uninstallable with a password instead of the 100 shekel. You may ask what is it useful if we can uninstall it ourselve, the answer is that the one that knows the password someone else than the user.
    Also, is it possible to make the Wi free block any internet access with a password too?

    I doubt the @admin would agree

    you could do that by creating a personal profile that blocks everything,

    no. installing WiFree is not mandatory. it is a voluntary additional protection (this is what makes the filters protection full by preventing the computer from connecting to other non-filtered networks) and using a password would potentially undermine the entire protection by letting people think they are protected when in fact they can remove it at a whim. it was initially designed to make the user think twice before removing the filter yet is not too much for someone who really does need the filter removed.

    One may suggest that Wifree is not simply an "additional protection".
    For many people without it there is almost no protection since they have non filtered internet available on WiFi.

    This is in fact what it does. it is additional and in many cases also essential.



  • I meant, if someone want a cosher access with a full protection he can request from a friend or a parent or his wife to block it without giving him the password and then when he really needs he can request from them to unblock.
    For someone that doesn't want to be able to unblock when he is alone or does not want his child to be able to unblock when he is alone but need to use other Wi-Fi connection oftenly (when he is not alone) or for someone that use pc that is not his pc and cannot impose this protection to a friend but want to be himself protected when he use the pc or forme someone who use a laptop at home and also in public places where he connect to other Wi-Fi but he cannot see what he wants because he would be ashamed it is a great solution.



  • @Chocolate
    thanks a lot for the link



  • @Yaacov yeah it sounds good, but it dosen't suit NetFree's standards,
    in other words you are providing people the option to have NetFree installed on their PC but giving them the control to shut it off whenever thay fancy.
