SafeEyes – WHS 13

Keep your kids safe online with SafeEyes

Parental controls are important tools in your homeschooling toolbox. Keeping your children safe on the Internet from objectionable material can be difficult considering how many ways it can slip through the cracks. Even with very strict parental controls in place it’s still possible for your children to view content that would make your eyelids curl. No filtering product is perfect but I think SafeEyes has the features and tools that will help you in keeping your children safe online.

Features

SafeEyes features include:

  • Content Controls – Flexible content control allows you to select the types of website that are appropriate.
  • Program Controls – Control Instant Messengers, P2P File Sharing, and other harmful programs.
  • Time Controls – Control the amount of time spent online, and the times when the internet is available.
  • Usage Logging – Create and review logs of websites visited, programs used on the Internet, and Instant Messaging Chats.
  • Usage Alerts – Be notified instantly via email, text message, or phone call when someone visits inappropriate websites.

Final thoughts

SafeEyes looks like a great tool for families who want an all-in-one solution to their Internet accountability and filtering needs. At $49.95 a year I think it’s priced just right for parents who want to be confident that their children will not come across objectionable material on the Internet. As I said earlier, no product is perfect but SafeEyes has a number of features that certainly make it a viable option for the less savvy computer users.
