CyberFence Parental Control Software Review
CyberFence offers some advanced features that other parental control software cannot. Its new and improved mobile remote monitoring feature is by far top of the line. Parents can now check their children’s offline and online activities via their mobile phones or any web browser. Mobile support will also allow you to manage settings and receive alert notifications.
Newly announced feature to filter and block adult contents in YouTube is also a must for most parents. Though YouTube’s video contents are helpful, it still contains videos only meant for adults. CyberFence can filter video clips that have adult contents. It also has the capacity to block videos of any sort that promotes the slightest of sexuality.
Blocking videos does not only work with YouTube. CyberFence can block over 800,000 pornographic videos that your children might download anytime. It also prohibits your child from sharing such videos to their peers or to any social or instant messaging network. For savvy children who might do their own work around of improvising porn videos from saved media files like USBs and CDs, CyberFence will still restrict this. Even changed file names of porn downloaded videos can still be detected.
CyberFence also boost of blocking over 700,000 adult sites. It has a filtering database that updates daily. Therefore, new uploaded websites that might connote adult contents are for sure prohibited. Parents may also choose to enter their preferred sites to block such as Facebook, Twitter or Myspace.
For parents who are concerned of their children being addicted to games and possibilities of sexual solicitation encounters, CyberFence offers to block game and IM applications too. CyberFence also allows parents to limit internet and computer time. Parents can set up daily and weekly time settings. What’s more it can be adjustable to hours and minutes.
For example, you can allow your kids to surf the net for 2hrs and 15 min daily. If the time is nearly due, a reminder will pop up 3 minutes and 1 minute before the software will lock everything.
Reports can be viewed either using your mobile phones or logging online. Detailed reports will show what websites your children visit, what are their web searches, what search area they searched it, how many times have they searched it and the date and time.
It will also log frequent visited sites and program used. Live screenshots that were taken every 20 min interval will also be included in the report. For parents who are more intricate and does not rely on reports, they can do contents scan. It will scan all computer files that might contain provocative adult images, files and videos.
Even with all these new and improved features, drawback of CyberFence still is it does not have predator watch and download blocking which could have been more helpful to monitor and protect our children.
