    Your best bet is to not use Chrome or Opera which tend to circumvent OpenDNS by using the suppliers' caching servers, but a different browser.

    Whatever, there may be fixes available, see e.g.
    http://mrtopf.de/blog/en/what-the-opendnsgoogle-problem-is-about/  (This option may not be available in your OpenDNS account.)
    http://ohryan.ca/2008/12/10/google-chrome-bypasses-opendns-and-how-to-fix-it/  (This option may be different in newer versions of Chrome.)

    You'll have to test what works for you.

    OpenDNS currently does not enforce safe search. Effectively this means a user can easily access inappropriate content by entering incognito or inprivate modes, searching for anything they want using google, yahoo, or bing, and seeing anything they want by clicking on the image tab. This bypasses most parental control software and parental control routers. I've found three routers that conveniently enforce safe search at the router (I'm not affiliated with any of these in anyway. I'm just a concerned parent doing their homework.):

    www.kibosh.net (enforce safe search + service)

    http://www.blocksi.net/parental-control.php (enforce safe search + service or openDNS)

    https://www.pcwrt.com/ (enforce safe search + openDNS)
