I have an account. But it appears that it doesn't matter if I am signed in or out, that my kids can view videos that are not age appropriate nor ones that I agree with. How do I or can I block it where it only says must sign in to actually see any thumb nails.

You might want to look into using from parental control software to block sites you don't feel are appropriate for your children... Net Nanny, Norton online family, K9 Web Protection, etc...

Depending on how old your children are you might find a site like ZuiTube useful.


It works exactly as YouTube does and has YouTube videos on the site embedded on their own pages, but each video is first screened to make sure it's child friendly. It's mainly for young children so if you have teenagers it's probably not much good, but the people who run the site do a very good job of keeping everything aimed at a young audience.

Build a sturdy wooden box with a hinged front to keep your computer in, and keep it padlocked. (Be sure to cut some slots for cooling.) it's the only way to be sure.

As long as they have physical access to the computer, your local network, or your Internet modem, they can get around any security you might install, if they are clever enough. So your only option is to physically prevent them from using the computer.

Hide the keyboard and mouse.      Heck,   how do you keep them from eating poison?

Buy a Mac... then hire a geek in their early 20s to configure the Parental Control options for you (this should work until your kids start high school).
