Isn't this the same as Norton ConnectSafe (and OpenDNS somewhat)?

At the moment I am using Google DNS servers because BT's are [censored].

No, it's different. All is explained in the supplied link?

City of London Police a founding organization - in other words GCHQ probably have direct access to it all. Thanks, but no thanks!

GCHQ have access to a year or more of your DNS lookups / metadata anyway. If privacy is that much of a concern using a VPN for everything is the only way to go.

Of course, there's the problem that the VPN provider has full access to all your traffic but...

If you're worried what type of websites you're visiting are going to be known to the Police, maybe it's a good idea not to visit those types of websites in the first place.

That's just a variation of "If you have nothing to hide then you have nothing to fear".

And if you believe that then I've got this bridge for sale...

Not sure I've heard that saying before, but I have heard of "If you've got nothing to hide then you've got nothing to fear." Not sure if that's what you meant.

If people are looking at websites they don't want the Police to know about, it's certainly not Tower Bridge they need to go to, but the Tower of London would be a start.

I left a "to" out, now corrected, thanks.

No problem with the correction.

Not sure if you are in favour of safety or not? I would rather have everyone's internet access monitored in some way. One prime example is the work that POLIT do (Paedophile Online Investigation Team).

Don't you believe in keeping people including children safe?
