Norton Online Family: Making the Internet Child-Safe?
(Page 1 of 4 )
Even a very simple, standard search on the Internet can yield dozens, even hundreds, of unwanted or inappropriate sites. Even a straightforward social networking site can lead to online interaction that’s highly mature in nature. It's the kind of thing we don't want our children to see. How do we protect them from the bad things online while letting them experience the good? Norton Online Family may offer a solution.
The World Wide Web is chock-full of great information and entertainment, news and interaction, fun and study tools. But the Internet is also filled with many things that many parents don’t want their children to see: pornography, sexual predators, get-rich-quick schemes, misinformation and a bevy of other online dangers.
Norton Online Family hopes to make the Internet more child-safe and family-friendly…but how is it different from all the other parental monitoring services out there? Learn how Norton Online Family can help you track and talk about your children’s Internet activity, limiting what they see and how they use their time online in a healthy, safe way.
A Child-Safe Internet
The truth is, there are a number of applications, services and programs out there which help parents monitor, restrict or otherwise observe what their children are doing online. Many concerned parents use these types of services to take an active role in their children’s Internet usage, but many parents also shy away from the idea of “spying” on their children as they explore the Word Wide Web. Norton Online Family has attempted to give parents and children a happy medium when it comes to creating a family-friendly Internet.
Using features such as mobile alerts, time restrictions, site-based restrictions and other tools, Norton Online Family gives parents full control and access when it comes to what their kids see online -- but it doesn’t do it covertly.
