It becomes more and more convenient for us to get access to all kinds of information, online from websites, applications, emails, videos, chats, TVs, etc. or offline from newspapers, magazines, handbills, billboards, books, CDs/DVDs, tapes, USBs, and so on. Yet, there is a problem that it costs us some time to tell which one is trustable, which one is what we really want, and which one is suitable for us.

Especially, for teenagers and kids, there are contents they are not supposed to see including pornography and gambling. Those contents are called adult contents. They should have reminding messages for their readers and only allow people who are above 18 years old to get in.
