Undoubtedly, the Internet can be a resourceful tool for kids. They can use it to research for their school projects, find reports, connect with friends and teachers, and also to play interactive games. But this internet can also cause serious damage as adult content and pornography is served with ease on the internet often without any constraints. Hence, parents and teachers will have to consider a whole lot of safety issues before allowing their child to use the internet.
For example, a 9-year-old might do an online search for “Kids.” However, by just missing one keystroke, the word “Kiss” is entered instead, and this mistake may take the child to a list of websites with a focus on just kiss — some of which may contain objectionable content and pornographic material as well.
Therefore, it is extremely important to have a check on what your kids see and hear on the Internet. Also, parents should be aware of who they meet, and what they share about themselves online, as sexual predators can very conveniently use this information to locate children and sexually molest them. Cyber bullies also take chance of such opportunity to harass children. Hence, it is crucial for parents to protect their child from such online dangers, but in most situations parents are unaware of ways to deal with it.
Web Protection with Parental Control is one of the ways that can not only provide complete internet security but can also help in regulating the way it is used.
Know about eScan Web Protection with Parental Control
eScan Web Protection uses highly advanced algorithms to block access to objectionable websites, based on the occurrence of specific words or phrases on the site and to block Web sites containing pornographic or offensive material. This feature is extremely beneficial for parents because it prevents kids from accessing Web sites containing vulgar or restricted content.
Age specific web access:
With different profile options such as the ‘Walled Garden’, ‘Teenager’, ‘Adolescent’ and ‘Adult’, covering age groups from 5 to 18 and above, users can customize web access options according to the situations confronted. With different profiles, you can block access to the internet except those in the Whitelist.
Another unique feature is the detailed report which helps users to keep a tab on which sites were visited by their kids along with the date and time.
It includes features such as real time content scanning, password protection and time restrictions for internet usage. With time restrictions parents can restrict their children from accessing adult websites and downloading any suspicious content which may contain malwares and even keep a tab on the time/date at which certain sites were accessed.
Therefore, without accurate web protection, preventing children from accessing objectionable content online will be difficult.
