In testing this product, I didn't explicitly block any site, but I did configure the filter to block adult content.
After doing so, I was able to access several adult sites without any problem.
Although I don't have any children of my own, friends routinely ask me whether I know of any good applications to keep their kids safe while online.
Here are five parental control applications you might find helpful.
For example, you can play a sound (so that a parent will hear an alert if access is attempted), and there is even an option to completely shut down Internet access for a period of time if someone repeatedly tries to access blocked sites (Figure A).
Before you can install the software, you will have to request a free license key.
I tend to think of Family Cyber Alert as every kid's worst nightmare.
Okay, maybe not every kid, but I am certainly glad that nothing like this existed when I was a kid.Family Cyber Alert records every keystroke and maintains separate logs of Web sites visited, emails sent, files accessed, and instant messages.The software can also be configured to automatically record screen captures of the session, and those screen captures can even be stitched together into a video of the session (Figure B).During testing, Anti-Porn seemed to be more effective (at least as default configurations are concerned) than many of the other parental control applications.Even so, the program contains at least one feature that seemed to be a nuisance.Anti-Porn is a parental control app whose goal is to prevent access to Internet porn.
