password protection

I would like to be able to password protect my settings so my children can't change them and view ads and websites I've blocked. Is there an option for that?

    Hi Brooks,

    Not currently but we may implement it in the future!

    Thanks for the feedback Tomas. When do you think you might add a password protection option for settings? Is it something that is on the drawing board now? Personally, it would make a huge difference in the way I could use it. I think it would add so much to an already great product.

    I haven't heard anything, but I've passed it on to the team. One thing I
    would recommend is to hide the AdBlock button by clicking it and then
    choosing "hide this button". This would make it harder for them to get
    access to AdBlock's options.
