In order to browse the Internet on a Nintendo DSi, you must first download the Nintendo DSi Browser from the Nintendo DSi Shop*. You can block the use of the Nintendo DSi Browser completely, or restrict certain content.
*Please note, unfortunately the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service which allows access to the Nintendo DSi Shop is currently not available in South Africa.
Completely Block the Use of the Nintendo DSi Browser:
Select "YES" to "Restrict the use of Nintendo DSi Browser?" while setting up Parental Controls.
Use Content Filtering to Block Inappropriate Content:
Nintendo has partnered with Astaro to offer all users of the Nintendo DSi Browser a free-of-charge content filtering service. This service, when enabled, is capable of blocking over 60 million websites that contain inappropriate or undesirable content such as pornography, illegal drugs, weapons, and violence. For a complete list of all blocked categories, please visit www.ds-content-filter.astaro.com. Blocked categories may change periodically. Parents please note that use of the Astaro filtering service may not block all websites you consider unsuitable for your child so it is important for you to participate in and monitor your child's use of the Nintendo DSi Browser.
