The most important FAQ
The JusProg system supports parents in guiding their children into the world of the internet. Therefore, parents have the final decision as to which websites are displayed for their children and which are blocked – no matter what the age labels of the providers on the websites and what the JusProg filter lists or the fragFINN search engine whitelist say about it. Only the websites that are absolutely forbidden in Germany (BPjM list, e.g. child pornography) cannot be unblocked even by parents.
Parents can put websites (domains) in the software on a personal whitelist (then the website is displayed) or a personal blacklist (then the website is blocked).
Some websites are virtually assembled from different sources (domains). In order to increase the security against circumvention, the JusProg software checks not only the main address (domain) that you see at the top of the input line of your Internet browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.), but also all hidden sources.
However, this has the consequence that websites are sometimes not displayed correctly or completely, even if you have whitelisted the main domain from the browser line and thus released it.
Unfortunately, there is no patent remedy for the solution, because the “supplier domains”, we also call them “function domains”, are hidden in the programming (source code) and are not easy for a technical layman to recognise. If you want to try it anyway (you can’t break anything in the process), right-click on a free area of the website and select “Show source code” from the menu this calls up. Don’t be confused by the incomprehensible lines and pick out all the domain names contained in the gibberish and whitelist them individually in addition to the main domain. If you search for http (key combination: Ctrl and F), it is easier to find the main domains contained.
Tip: In many (but not all) cases it is easier:
- Enter the domain with a placeholder, because most feeds come from a variant (subdomain) of the main domain. So it is better to enter *.site.de instead of www.site.de in the whitelist, then image feeds, e.g. from bilder.site.de, will also be displayed.
- If the Internet browser (Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, etc.) is waiting for partial content, it often displays this briefly at the bottom left of the browser window when loading the page. Make a note of the exact domains displayed there and also enter them in the whitelist.
- Has the domain perhaps landed incorrectly on the filter list? Then you can ask the JusProg team to check the age classification. To do this, enter the domain here: https://www.jugendschutzprogramm.de/webseite-melden/ The check and possible activation may take a few days.
