Bsecure is first of its kind combo package to do almost all possible online protection for the entire family. It adapts McAfee’s engineering that best fights viruses and spam wares. Plus, it filters and blocks websites and applications that might be viewed as danger. It also has 61 blocking categories any parents can choose from and it promotes Safe Search Locks to all search engines. This enforces your children to use only secured search engines that support Safe Search Locks.
Bsecure filtering categories can either be pre-default according to age brackets. It can be customized as to child (0-8), youth (9-12), teen (13-17) and for older limited users, adult (18+). Parents can customize filtering and blocking systems too with over 60 unwanted web categories. Bsecure gives parents 3 options to choose from during blocking process.
Parents can personalize settings as to just block the site immediately, give override password to the user or to just warn the user but would still be allowed to access the site. This is suitable for older children whom parents think are more responsible. But of course, even if warning signs are ignored, Bsecure will still monitor what site was accessed for later use.
Parents can too just allow any user to view any site provided all are discreetly monitored and can just apply blocking options right after everything was uncovered. Once system blocks a site and per say your child disagrees, they can either request for administrator to change the policy or request for another category review. If it is the administrator himself/herself is accessing the site, he can simply log in and alter the restriction.
Blocking system not only works on websites but it too can be applied to all modes of media. It follows industry’s standard ratings such as MPAA for movies, FCC rating for TV shows and ESRB for games. It can also block explicit music from iTunes. These settings can be also be modified. For example, you have a 12 yr old daughter who is so engrossed in media entertainment; you can allow her to view PG-13 movies, TV-14 TV shows and can only play E10+ games. All these settings can be applied to major media websites while unpopular ones are just blocked for security reasons.
Bsecure can also impose time limits to your children. Parents can schedule what time their children can surf and play games within the week. For savvy children, who might be thinking of tampering the PC time, Bsecure only uses a server based time which parents can specify and lock. However, drawback of this feature is that schedules are only per hour not by hours and minutes which other parental software can do.
Bsecure also gains access to all social networking accounts of every limited user. If for instance, the system captured a suspicious activity on your child’s Facebook account, parents can immediately log in and see for themselves what is happening after receiving a red alert text or email message. Bsecure can also limit access to all IM programs, peer-to peer sharing of files, proxy bypass sites, malwares, games, media programs and email applications.
Reports show your entire child’s IM activites, log files of all searched websites and all applications used. Parents are armed with alert notifications via text messages or emails. Take note though, mobile providers might carry possible fees for text messages.
Bsecure seems to be the perfect match compared to all parental control software if not lacking the feature of keystroke logging which could be of greater use if children are typing explicit words and phrases. Nonetheless, Bsecure is all around parental control software.
