An estimated 1,600 computers, smartphones and tablets received a free filter, and their users got free advice, from more than 20 technicians at a “Filterthon” Sunday at a tent set up in front of Rabbi Landau’s shul in Flatbush, organizers said.

Organized by Venishmartem, the event hosted the official release of a new, state-of-the-art filter, named “VCF” (Venishmartem Cloud Filter).

The develpment of an intelligent filter is very practical, since it does not block websites, but rather looks at each individual page to make sure no inappropriate content is leaking through.

“The world wide web is like a storming river, and a filter for it, accordingly, must be something like a filter for water, which filters every drop of water passing through, [that doesn’t] just rely on a pre-set list of information,” one of the directors of Venishmartem said.

VCF Pro filter is available for free for computers and laptops, as well as smartphones, the Safari browser and all apps.

At least 1,600 people downloaded the new VCF filter. If you missed this event, you can still reach Venishmartem, at 718 GET-HELP, for advice and for help installing a filter that’s most practical for your business or home.
