Image from store Smart Internet Porn Filter from vRate
Description from store vRate Extension is a smart internet content blocker that filters adult and racy visual elements by analyzing images on a web page leveraging the latest advances in artificial intelligence and machine learning. The extension gathers information about images on every page and send it to Masala.AI's high performance content rating API to identify and rate offensive content. All this happens at near real time to give you an un-interrupted browsing experience while keeping the internet safe for your children. The smart filter replaces any images containing explicit nudity as well as images with racy content including revealing clothing and provocative poses. The sensitivity for the blocking behavior, including adult vs. racy content can be controlled in the settings page. The extension also blocks images in popular search engines including Google, Bing for further safety in search sessions. ❅ The extension is now only available for a nominal one time fee after your free trial period, to be able to cover the ongoing development & support costs. ❅ Per Chrome Web Store requirements, the use of the extension is limited to Google-Authenticated users. ❅ Please note that the extension or the supporting Media Rating API technology does not store, record or analyze your personal data. The extension operates by intercepting images prior to loading in Chrome. The intercepted images are analyzed in the cloud. Only publicly accessible URLs of images are sent to the Media Rating APIs. PRIVACY POLICY Our Privacy Policy is located at https://www.masala.ai/about/privacy-policy/. TERMS OF USE Our Terms of Use is located at https://www.masala.ai/support/vrate-extension-terms-of-use/ Users may occasionally see slower loading times of websites due to traffic on the cloud. This is normal behavior and should automatically correct, however, if for any reason you believe the requests are being blocked for an abnormally long time, disabling & re-enabling the extension through the Chrome Extensions page should resolve the problem quickly. While we apply the state-of-the-art in artificial intelligence(AI) to deliver this service, current advancements are still short of comparable human accuracy. However, we believe that these are first steps towards the application of AI and image analysis to keep the internet safe for our children. In the fast changing internet of today, traditional techniques used by current internet filters are always a step behind. This is because static blacklists need to be constantly updated. Additionally seemingly innocuous websites like social networks, media sharing platforms, mixed-use websites, that are generally not blocked by blacklists also end up serving content that are sometimes not appropriate for children. The vRate smart filter overcomes this problem by applying the same intelligent rules to every web page page that it sees. Further, the Blacklists & Whitelists offered by the extension allows users to customize the filtering behavior by selectively specifying sites to block or allow, which overrides the default functionality. DISCLOSURE vRate applies the latest advancements in artificial intelligence to automatically determine obscene content without any manual intervention. However, like all services that depend on artificial intelligence, there is always a chance of error associated with the final determination made by the computer system. The current error rate ranges from 4% to 15% and is largely dependent on the quality of the image and context. Additionally, vRate applies several other rules to identify inappropriate content to ensure the maximum possible accuracy, but there is no guarantee of 100% accuracy and the possibilities of errors exist. vRate browser extension currently analyzes only images and replaces inappropriate ones with a warning image. A wide range of image formats are supported, but streaming videos, flash content, display ads and other media content that do not render as a supported image are not analyzed and will be displayed as is. Feature requests or issues can be reported at [email protected] By the use of this extension, you agree that you have read this disclosure and Our Terms of Use and Privacy Policy documentation.

  • (2020-08-06) Daniel Zador: This modern blocker has excellent situational awareness in detecting suggestive images, that which older generation blockers won't do. If there's one thing to add, it'd be the ability to block URLS rather than domains (example a YouTube link instead of all of YouTube) and key search words alone. Example: If someone wants to block the word "bikini", they can type that into the blacklist and it will automatically prevent that search term from being entered. Purity does this, except that I'm having problems with their extension, which is why I'm trying out vRate. I absolutely encourage the programmers of this extension to narrow down the blacklist to URLS and search terms in addition to domains.
  • (2019-12-04) shalom cohen: Thank you, this is awesome!!
  • (2019-10-11) Sergey я: Лучшее из подобных.
  • (2019-10-10) Scott Titensor: I have only used it for one day, but I added this extension because I was reading an article on paste magazine about the 100 best music albums of the 2000's and one of the album covers had a topless woman. Even after putting the setting on high, the webpage and the picture still were not blocked. I guess I don't understand how the A.I. works, but I would think this picture should have been blocked.
  • (2019-09-27) Titan Malchior: This truly is a Smart Filter. I have used Blockers that are blocking too much or not blocking at all but this blocks only the content and not the whole information. Really loved it .Thanks
  • (2019-04-09) Natali Kedrovka: Красиво работает! Ничего лишнего не пропускает :)))) Разработчики молодцы! Спасибо!
  • (2019-04-07) Alex Petrov: Отличное приложение! Блокирует не только сайты, которые пропускает даже яндекс.фильтр и некоторые другие фильтры, но и не дает осуществлять поиск по картинкам, когда забиваешь поиск, "например голые девушки", с этим приложением ни одной голой девушки увидеть в браузере будет не возможно!!
  • (2019-04-03) Sqadr M: Just start using. I don't know why it is free as developers say that they use cloud for analyzing images. And it really works!!! Wow! Probably it will ask for some payment soon but now it works for free!
  • (2019-02-11) Einstein Hanaphy: It's highly reliable, but didn't recognize some images with woman covered except her vulva exposed. But it is the best right now.
  • (2018-09-20) Daniel Keele: Works extremely well after tweaking the settings. Totally awesome product.

  • (2020-08-28, v:2.7) David Dyke: Refund
    The extension can be bypassed by signing out of chrome, making it useless. I would like to cancel it and get a refund. I just bought it today.
  • (2020-08-28, v:2.7) David Dyke: Youtube
    Even with all settings at the most sensitive, i can't see a single video preview on youtube. Also, will only show the first 15 or so image results Is there a way to change this?
  • (2020-08-06, v:2.7) Daniel Zador: Feedback
    Good evening, I'm impressed with this advanced modern blocker. It has excellent situational awareness in detecting suggestive images, that which older generation blockers won't do. If there's one thing to add, it'd be the ability to block URLS rather than domains (example a YouTube link instead of all of YouTube) and key search words alone. Example: If someone wants to block the word "bikini", they can type that into the blacklist and it will automatically prevent that search term from being entered. Purity does this, except that I'm having problems with their extension, which is why I'm trying out vRate. I absolutely encourage the programmers of this extension to narrow down the blacklist to URLS and search terms in addition to domains at an affordable monthly price (like $5 USD). If there's more to encourage you on, it'd be to develop this extension into an app on Google Play and the App Store so it can be easily accessible on other devices. Another game changing addition to this software at a separate price could be an accountability system which can monitor and screenshot images of what the person is looking at (but blurred only enough to filter out sensitive information) before sending it to the accountability partner with the PIN. Thank you for taking my considerations.
  • (2020-06-18, v:2.7) Mark Hartje: does this work across multiple devices?
    I have a windows pc and an android phone that can use the same google account and chrome. So if I set this up on my desktop will this apply to the andriod device that shares the same google account as the desktop? thanks.
  • (2020-04-22, v:2.6) Matthew Harmon: Not working
    Hi, I used the free version of the extension in the past for free and it worked fine. I just purchased it, and now it suddenly doesn't work. I try to access the extension options, but it keeps asking me to purchase it when I already have....
  • (2020-04-22, v:2.6) Borys Zsyberii: Not working
    Hi, I just bought it and it's not blocking any image, i set to maximum sensitivity, tried already to restart chrome, but with no success. In the past i used it as free and it was working fine.
  • (2019-10-10, v:2.2) Scott Titensor: Webpage with a topless woman was not blocked, even at the highest setting. Can you help me figure out why it didn't work.
    Webpage with a topless woman was not blocked, even at the highest setting. Can you help me figure out why it didn't work? I was reading an article on the 100 best music albums on paste magazine and there was an album cover with a topless woman. I work at a school, and I don't want to get in trouble (as well as not seeing it in the first place). This is the webpage. https://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2019/10/best-albums-of-the-2010s-paste.html?utm_source=PMNTNL&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=191009
  • (2019-04-06, v:2.2) Sqadr M: Does not show yandex maps images
    Go to https://yandex.by/maps/157/minsk/?ll=27.561481%2C53.902496&z=12 It will not show anything on the map. I added domains like 'vec01.maps.yandex.net' and others to white list but it didnt help, it still does not show anything on the map
  • (2019-04-06, v:2.2) Sqadr M: Add button 'add site to whitelist' to vrate plugin button
    Please add button 'add site to whitelist' to vrate plugin button. For now i can use 'unblock' button but it does not add site to whitelist but just allow to see images only once i suppose. But there are quite a lot of sites I trust and its annoying to go to settings all the time i come to new trusted site and add it to whitelist there. It will be much easier just to right-click on vrate plugin button and add the site at once. Thanks
  • (2019-01-25, v:2.2) Daniel Vander Klok: half of it doesn't work
    Using it as an adult it doesn't work. It doesn't block anything. I have the little box clicked to block racy content but it doesn't block anything. The kids side works but makes using google shopping difficult as it cuts out all of the pictures even for Chromebooks, and for you tube. Are you guys working on this issue?
  • (2018-04-13, v:2.2) Joshua Kearns: Email images in outlook.office.com hidden
    VRate is hiding images in my email at outlook.office.com Changing the website to an allowed website doesn't do anything
