What is Parental Control Software?

Parental control software is your right-hand man when it comes to internet safety. It allows you to monitor, control and limit your child’s online activity, keeping them safe and secure online.

Most devices come with parental controls, but these can be easily disabled.

Here’s why you need parental control software such as iKydz Wireless Access Control or F-Secure SAFE, AVG or Kaspersky – all leaders in device protection and antivirus software.

BeSecureOnline are proud stockist of all the above mentioned products and are happy to assist with installation.

Below are a few reasons why you need parental control software

  1. Internet safety - You want to keep you kids safe online.
  2. You want to make sure that your child is safe and protected from inappropriate online content.
  3. Complete monitoring - We know from our internet safety talks that kids are using numerous devices to access the internet - using several different browsers per device. Parental Control software allows you to remotely monitor every device at all times.
  4. Parental control software helps you manage your entire family’s internet access – this is especially useful when there are older kids in the house with different internet use permissions.
  5. Disable or enable internet access – from wherever you are. You can’t be there all day to protect your kids at home. *Taking the router to work every day is not a viable plan.
  6. Parental control software is an extra pair of eyes, a gatekeeper in your own home alerting you to internet misuse, controlling the amount of time your kids are online.
  7. F-Secure SAFE software includes both Anti-Virus Software and Malware Protection.
  8. As much as you communicate with your children, and have great internet security on your computer, there is always the chance that your child may stumble into malware. If you have younger children, the chances are even greater that they may happen upon a warning page, yet continue to click through. Parental control software helps filter out sites that are inappropriate and often have malware attached, ready to attack.
  9. Older kids often try to encourage or assist their younger siblings to breach the parental agreements for their entertainment. Parental control software removes this opportunity and the possibility of your younger children being exposed to inappropriate content.
  10. Even as your kids grow older parental control software keeps them protected, preventing unplanned access and protecting their online wellbeing and promoting better behaviours. For example Snapchat for 1 hour per day.
  11. Remote internet monitoring - After school activities, sleepovers and school trips; it’s good to know your kid has her phone with her, keeping you in touch and her safe.
  12. Parental control software allows you to see the sites your child visits and reports sites that are blocked. Some software is designed to issue a real time alert, so parents can take action immediately.
  13. Set up time limits for every device, all day every day with longer periods of access if you agree to it at the week end.
  14. Routine is healthy (and helpful) for children, and this software helps you schedule healthy times for internet usage - When the time is up, internet access stops.
