Editors' Note: Users must go to the developer's Web site to create their username and password to operate the BuyBlock.
BuyBlock is great new parental control software that prevents kids from entering personal information online. When BuyBlock is activated, kids cant shop, register for any unapproved websites, or sign into social networks. No setup or monitoring is required. This patent-pending software identifies fields requesting personal information on any web site and locks them, thereby preventing the user from entering any information. In addition to blocking text entry on websites, the "submit" button also gets disabled for extra protection. With BuyBlock you can: prevent unapproved purchases over the Internet, prevent the posting of information on social networks without your consent, easily activate and deactivate BuyBlock with a customer-created username and password, and allow personal information to be entered on certain sites with the "unblock sites" feature.
