Parental Controls / Webfiltering (Protecting children online)

Last Updated: 7/30/12

Parental Controls (also called web filtering) is something you achieve by installing third party software on your PC (or mobile device). This allows you (the parent) to restrict what type of websites your child visits. I suggest all parents install parental control software and that they keep their computer in a shared room (not in the child's room). Here is a list of some websites that offer parental control software:

Norton Online Family (Free basic account or paid Premier account)
https://onlinefamily.norton.com

Safe Eyes (also available for mobile devices)
