I'm looking for parental control software that offers all of the following features:
- ability to completely disable the internet activity monitoring feature (most parental control software has the monitoring feature but not the ability to disable it)
- ability to block webpages containing specific URL strings (but not the entire domain[s] that said webpages belong to)
- ability to use wildcard characters in the blacklist (for example,
subdomain.example.comcould be blocked/allowed by including
*.example.comin the blacklist)
- ability to block webpages based on URL and within-page keyword filters (this is similar to the second one, with the aim being to block specific webpages rather than entire domains)
In my searching for parental control software, I have yet to come across anything that includes all of these features (though the last one is not an absolute necessity).
My operating system is macOS (in case it matters, I'm running 10.13.3). I don't have a strict budget, but I'd like to stay at around $50 or less if possible (of course, cheaper is better, but if a clearly better program costs more, that's fine).
