After installation, you’ll find an entry for Nanny in System > Administration > Parental Control. There’ll also be an entry for the Blacklists admin tool in System > Administration > Blacklists.

If you want to control access for the particular websites, you can easily do that by specifying the lists of allowed and blocked sites, for this you need to 'enable web filtering' box in the web browser tab and click 'configure'. for this you can also download the list of blacklist sites from here and provide it to the nanny.
