Net Nanny



Many children are ignorant, and rightly so, to the risks of playing games and socializing with friends online. Whether working on a school paper or playing a social game, Net Nanny will keep your child safe from online predators, pornography, and cyber bullying. Parents, remember this.. you can’t turn back time. If your tween see’s an obscene image just once, that image will be engrained in their memory forever. You can keep that from happening by using software such as Net Nanny. It takes just one image or one obscene comment via a social network to impact and confuse your child. Why take that chance?

I’ve been working online for over 10 years and was sure I knew how to keep my kids safe online.  But I’m not so sure these days.   A lot has changed in 10 years.  While the internet can provide our children with a lot of educational information, we need to remember that the internet is also full of websites that are inappropriate for children including pornographic and hate websites and once your child sees that material, you can’t make it disappear from their memory.

With Net Nanny, you can filter out harmful websites.  This is priceless to me as a parent.  Net Nanny allows parents to customize what kind of sites our children are able to view and what sites are restricted. This means that we are able to control our child’s activity on the internet even when we are not around.

When it comes to parental control software it is important that the software can monitor your child’s behavior on the internet not just block websites and keywords.  While Net Nanny not only blocks pornographic and other undesired material, it also monitors activity on social media networks, chat, and gaming websites.

Did you know that there are many ways your children can access pornography and questionable content on the Internet? Net Nanny provides full internet safety on not just the World Wide Web, but also less known but equally dangerous parts of the Internet like the Usenet, Peer-to-Peer downloading networks, Chat Rooms, Instant Messages, FTP, Forums and email. If you have never heard of some of those areas of the Internet, it is possible that your kids have. But don’t worry. Net Nanny knows about them, and protects your children from the bad content on them.
