User Setup Parents need flexibility and ease of
use. Internet technologies change quickly and can be
difficult to master; your Parental Control software
shouldn't be. With Net Nanny software, parents can
choose from a default "Anybody"
configuration, with age-appropriate settings suitable
to families with teenagers and adults, or set up
profiles for each of up to 12 family members with
separate passwords, restrictions, and monitoring
Filtering Web filtering means two things: blocking
objectionable material and allowing everything else.
For parents, this means being able to reliably manage
what web sites their children see. Kids need to be
able to access much of the web for its informational,
educational, and entertainment content. Unfortunately,
a lot of what's out there is obscene, promotes hate
and violence, or solicitious.
Management Children are often exposed to
objectionable materials (and other people who traffic
them) because their activities cannot be easily
supervised. Time limits give parents the tools they
need to restrict the times of day their kids use the
Internet and the amount of time they spend online.
and Monitoring Net Nanny can block and control
Internet access for a variety of applications: web
browsing, Internet chat, file sharing, and e-mail.
But, for many parents, it is just as important to know
what their kids are doing. In some families,
monitoring and strict household rules may compliment
or supercede the blocking features in Net Nanny. For
parents who are new to the Internet, monitoring
activity is the first step towards deciding if
children have safe Internet habits to begin with.
Internet Application Blocking Many parents
think of the "Internet" as a single
application or a service provided by their phone or
cable company. In fact, the Internet is accessible by
dozens of individual applications, such as a web
browser, e-mail client, online chat program, etc. all
of which may expose children to inappropriate content
or dangerous people.
Privacy Protection Your private information is
valuable to those who would use it to exploit your
family Net Nanny protects your private information by
filtering it out of the data that leaves your computer
in e-mail, chat rooms, and on the web.
