This URL will never actually appear in production, but you may use it to preview the message that a user will see if the computer that they are using does not permit bypassing the filter. Note: a CIPA-compliant library must allow adults to bypass for lawful purposes, but may restrict some stations (e.g. Children's Room computers) in a way that doesn't permit blocks to be overridden.

The following website has been manually added to the iboss website block list in order to serve as "safe" sites for testing and demonstrating the filtering technology. When your PC is not logged in to an adult bypass mode, clicking these links should bring up the filtering block page cited above. After logging in for an adult bypass, continuing to click on these links will display benign (non-porn) content suitable for all audiences.
