Software That Will Filter Objectionable Content for Kids

You are just one typo away from pornography. Don't let your kids wander around the Internet without protection from seeing pornography. There are programs that will help keep pornography, gambling and other unacceptable sites out of your home. Here are my favorite parental software programs.

Norton Internet Security
Norton - a trusted name in virus protection now offers a complete security package for your family. The parental controls offer customizable options and it also offers a Privacy Control feature which blocks confidential information from being sent through popular instant messenger programs. Packaged with Norton's virus protection and a firewall it is an excellent value.

Net Nanny
Net Nanny is an excellent program if you have children that are experimenting with unacceptable sites online. It shows clear messages to the user about violations and keeps logs that you can view to find out what they did wrong.

Cybersitter is an excellent program that filters unwanted pornography and other objectionable sites from your computer. It records AOL Instant Message and Yahoo Messenger conversations. Cybersitter allows parents to override blocked sites, add their own sites to block, specify allowable times to access the Internet, and maintains a detailed log of all Internet activity and violations. It will even send a daily report to parents by e-mail.

ContentBarrier for Mac
If you have a Mac computer, you probably already know that finding software can be tough at times. ContentBarrier is a filtering program designed specifically for Mac users that blocks unacceptable sites, monitors chat and shuts it down if inappropriate language occurs, limits time, download ability and more.

K9 Web Protection
K9 Web Protection is free for home. It blocks inappropriate Web site from appearing on the computer.

CyberPatrol has some nice features for parents to be able to control what their children see and what they do online. CyberPatrol monitors Internet activity, blocks harmful sites and images, restricts chat, limits time online and access to programs, controls program downloads, and blocks personal information from being sent from your computer.
