OpenDNS Umbrella lets you manage the Internet experience on and off your network with acceptable use or compliance policies, putting you in control.

By just pointing DNS to OpenDNS, security is simple to deploy. By enforcing security in the cloud, Umbrella is easy to manage. No hardware to install. No software to maintain. Nothing you need to update!

For advance pay a visit to OpenDNS and sign up for their free home-user account. Plug in your email, choose a strong password, and then make sure to check your email to confirm your identity and activate the account.

Once you’ve confirmed your account you’ll need to add your home IP to a network. OpenDNS supports multiple networks but all we’re concerned with is making sure that your home network is recognized by OpenDNS.

Click Add a network in your OpenDNS Dashboard, confirm that the IP it suggests you use is the IP address of your home internet connection. Name the connection Home (or the name of whatever network you’re planning on logging the URLs for).

When you’re done if it doesn’t automatically kick you over to the Settings submenu of the dashboard click on the tab to navigate there on your own. There you’ll find the new network you made, listed by the label you gave it and your IP address.

From there you can set your security from custom to high or none.

You can enable logs and stats  too.
