information   Information
Content Advisor is a tool for controlling the types of content that your computer can access on the Internet in Internet Explorer. After you turn on Content Advisor, only rated content that meets or exceeds your criteria can be viewed. You can adjust the settings to suit your preferences.

In IE10 and IE11, the Content Advisor setting in Internet Options has been hidden since you can use Family Safety web filtering.

If you would still like to use Content Advisor in Internet Explorer, then this tutorial will show you how hide or show the Content Advisor setting for all or specific users in Internet Options for IE10 and IE11.

You must be signed in as an administrator to be able to do the settings in this tutorial.
