    HI -- We are considering purchasing a droid for our daughter. Can I install interenet parental blocks like we have on our home interent? I don't want her to wind up on inappropriate sites!

    Welcome to the Android Forums!

    Some carriers have parental filters built into their web portals. There are also parental control app's available in the Android market

    I too am looking for internet parental controls and have not been able to find an app that does what I want.

    Does anybody have any suggestions?

    i think you can put a custom dns on them, if you root them
    then point it toward something like opendns

    As far as Google search is concerned, I think you can go into settings and check strict for search results. It will filter out some porn sites and pics.
    Hope this is what you were looking for.
