However, while it might be easy to ban Internet use at home, Internet access is more and more common in classrooms and at the library. It has become an indispensable part of your child's education. This is why it is important for Web safety to start with you, in your home. By educating yourself and your child and following a few basic guidelines, you can empower your child to surf the Web safely.

At Net Nanny, we strongly recommend that you educate yourself on Web safety. The "Simple Steps" below are a good place to start

Web Filtering
Filters allow you to block objectionable material on the Web, while enabling access to everything else. For parents, this means you can reliably manage what Web sites your children see. Kids need to be able to access much of the Web for its informational, educational and entertainment content. However, a lot of sites out there are inappropriate and potentially damaging for children, featuring illicit content or promoting hate and violence.
  • Get a monthly updated block list of inappropriate Web sites.
  • Know exactly what your kids can and cannot see.
  • Fully view and edit block lists.
  • Create a "whitelist" of certain Web sites so that only those sites, and no others, may be visited or viewed.
  • Create keyword lists to filter out inappropriate, vulgar or sexual terms on Web pages, in chat rooms and in emails.
  • Use pop-up blockers to keep your screen from filling up with advertisements from adult sites and other over-zealous advertisers.
User Setup
While many Internet technologies can be difficult to master, Net Nanny is quick to set up and easy to use.
  • Install in ten minutes, with no specialized knowledge.
  • Start with a default "Anybody" configuration, with age-appropriate settings. Or set up to 12 unique settings, covering different users.
  • Set age-specific limits for Web surfing, file-sharing and chat.
  • Enforce different time limits for younger children, teenagers and adults.
  • Use passwords to give parents unrestricted and unlimited usage.
  • View separate monitoring reports for each child's activity

Internet Application Blocking

Chat, instant messaging and dozens of other kinds of applications (computer programs) are accessible on the Internet. A comprehensive parental control program enables you to restrict access to applications you know about or do not know about.
  • Block access to chat and instant messaging, one of the most effective ways to stop sexual predators.
  • Block access to Internet games and newsgroups, to prevent children from participating in inappropriate discussions and playing violent or addictive games.
  • Prevent illegal downloading of copyrighted or obscene material.

Time Management

Children can be more easily exposed to objectionable materials -- and the people who traffic them -- during times when it is difficult to supervise their online activities, such as late at night. Time limits give parents the tools to restrict the times of day your kids use the Internet and the amount of time they spend online.
  • Limit the total amount of time spent online per day.
  • Set up separate limits for different family members.
  • Block the Internet late at night or when children cannot be easily supervised.
  • Help prevent Internet addiction and promote healthy computer habits.
