Tired of your computer crashing just because your kids managed to get a virus on the computer? Or concerned about how much time your kids spent online and the influence of social networking sites on their life? Norton has introduced a web monitoring free tool called Norton Online Family to keep an eye on what you kids are doing.
The Norton Online Family not only allows you to decide which sites your kids can visit, but it also restricts the time they can surf the internet. Parents can also check what things their kids are looking for in search engines like Google and even check who they chat with. Norton Online Family also allows you to check what information is given out on social networking sites
The Norton Online Family not only allows you to decide which sites your kids can visit, but it also restricts the time they can surf the internet.
Parent can check what their kids are surfing in real time. Norton Online Family also sends you email alert kids do something they shouldn’t, such as attempting to visit a blocked site or exceeding their allotted computer time.
I know the application might not look so bright from a kids perspective, but in a world where even grownups are getting duped by spywares and phishing scams, it becomes critical to take such precautions.
Norton is providing this application on free. It is a good free application to have if you are a parent, but you should also try not to spy too much in your kids personal life and rather sit down and decide on the dos and don'ts and let them create their own rule book.
