What is Internet Filtering?

Internet filtering is when software is used to prevent computer users from accessing certain sites or portions of the internet. Internet filters may be installed by anyone who runs or maintains a network including companies, schools, organizations, and public access points such as libraries. In some instances such as schools and libraries, the Child Internet Protection Act (CIPA) requires filtering to be in place to prevent children from viewing pornographic content.
