DNS to Filter Your Network
The Clean Browsing Adult-level DNS IP Addresses are:
This configuration blocks access to all adult, pornographic and explicit sites. It does not block proxy or VPNs, nor mixed-content sites. Sites like Reddit are allowed. Google and Bing are set to the Safe Mode and YouTube is not restricted.
185.228.168.10
    185.228.169.11

    The Clean Browsing Family-level DNS IP Addresses are:
    This configuration blocks access to all adult, pornographic and explicit sites. It also blocks proxy and VPN domains that are used to bypass the filters. Mixed content sites (like Reddit and Imgur) are also blocked. Google, Bing, and YouTube are set to the Safe Mode (yea!)
    185.228.168.168
      185.228.169.168

      From an Admin Command Prompt:

      To find your interface, you are going to run a command in the command prompt netsh interface ip show config or ipconfig /all. This is going to give you a long output showing you all the interfaces on your device. You are looking for the specific interface names. If you are in doubt, you can always update both, the Ethernet and Wi-Fi interfaces. Next step.

      In the command prompt you're going to use the netsh command. This command-line script utility allows you to modify network configurations.

      It will also be in your interest to update both the IPv4 and IPv6 configurations. More and more we're encountering ISP's and Routers that are forcing IPv6 in the place of IPv4 so best to be safe. If you are having issues with IPv6 DNS not being recognized it might be indicative of a network issue with IPv6. If you encounter this issue, we recommend disabling IPv6 locally.

      After finding your WiFi and or Ethernet names, from an Admin Command Prompt:
      Windows 10

      Inside the command prompt, copy and paste the following command to change your DNS for the "Wi-Fi" interface (be sure to replace the name in quotes with the found names):
      IPv4 using Family Filter:
      netsh interface ipv4 set dns "Wi-Fi" static 185.228.168.168 primary
      netsh interface ipv4 add dns "Wi-Fi" 185.228.169.168 index=2
      IPv6 using Family Filter:
      netsh interface ipv6 set dns "Wi-Fi" static 2a0d:2a00:1:: primary
      netsh interface ipv6 add dns "Wi-Fi" 2a0d:2a00:2:: index=2
      ______________________________________________________________________________________________________

      From an Admin Command Prompt:
      Windows 7
      The command for Windows 7 is slightly different. For IPv4:
      netsh interface ip set dns "Wi-Fi" static 185.228.168.168
      For IPv6:
      netsh interface ipv6 set dns "Wi-Fi" static 2a0d:2a00:1::
      If there are no warning, it means the change succeeded. You can confirm it was modified by running:
      netsh interface ip show config

      208.67.222.123
      208.67.220.123
