    "Excellent for teaching kids/teens about BAD sites!"

    January 21, 2007  |   By ShamaMama414

    Pros

    This program has really helped me with a problem with my kids (and my husband) lacking understanding of which sites are ok and which are not. This has been ongoing in my house and was about to get worse with my kids each getting their own desktops for Christmas. Teaching my 13 & 14 year old kids about spyware and so on has been a challange to say the least. If I hadn't found this I would have virtually locked them out of most of the net and would have been constantly running around entering my password to approve websites. They are starting to spot things out now for themselves and are becoming much more aware that they can cause their computers harm by simply visiting a website. I even heard my son tell his friend the other day "are you crazy, we are not clicking on a red site"! That is a small miracle. I even downloaded this onto my PC and laptop because it takes the guesswork out of which sites are safe to visit and which will try to scam you out of your email address and load you up with spyware. It's very simple to use and doesn't interfere with your searches etc. If you have kids or someone else using your computer that just doesn't get it this is a must have!

    Cons

    NONE, this is awesome!!!
