Block ads, porn, gambling, social networks...

WebLocker is a free tool which enables blocking ads, malicious websites, adult websites, social networks, gambling sites and more.

The program works partly by changing your DNS server. Choose the policy which matches your needs - whether you want to be more secure, improve performance, unblock US sites, stay safe from porn or keep your browsing family-friendly - and WebLocker updates your system with a click.

There are also separate tools for individually blocking porn, ads, gambling or social network sites, and an anti-DNS leak option. These may work by updating your HOSTS file, although the developer doesn't make it clear.

WebLocker can also block individual custom websites, either permanently or for the time you specify. You could make a site available only at the weekends, for instance, or just for a couple of hours in the evening.

Password protection ensures other users of the PC can't modify your settings.

While the program is free, we found it displayed a nag screen on launch and at other times, requesting "donations". But the message explained that this isn't simply for the developer, as 50% of your donation will go to "beggars". Good to know.


WebLocker enables PC novices to block all kinds of web hazards in a very few clicks. There's little here for more experienced users, though - the program does most of its work by changing your PC to use services such as OpenDNS or Norton ConnectSafe, and if you're interested you probably know how to do this already.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.61

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.61

- Search messages within a specific chat: Open any chat, tap the chat name at the top to go to Contact Info/Group Info, and then tap Chat Search.
- Design improvements for iOS 11.
- Post text-only updates to your status and they'll be visible for 24 hours. Just tap the pencil icon in the Status tab, type what you'd like to share, and pick a background color or font.
