Editors' Review

The Internet is a wonderful thing, but not all of the content available online is appropriate for every user. This fact can be particularly anxiety-inducing for parents who want to give their kids access to the fun and educational aspects of the Internet but are wary of adult content, online predators, and other dangers. Integard Home is an extremely powerful and customizable program that prevents all kinds of problematic content from being viewed.

We've seen programs like Integard Home before, but none of them have been quite so comprehensive. The program offers six preconfigured profiles--young child, young teenager, late teenager, adult restricted, monitor only, and unrestricted--and users are also free to create custom profiles. The program also has eight levels of filtering, from unfiltered to maximum blocking. Integard separates Web sites into 42 different categories, from adult content and illegal activities to news and entertainment, and users can select whether to block or allow each category. Users can also block and allow specific sites, control the use of chat clients and other programs, and set daily time limits for Internet use. We experimented with several different profiles and settings and we were impressed with how easy the program was to configure and how effectively it worked. All of Integard's configuration and management tools take place within the user's Web browser, and though it will likely take users a while to get acquainted with where everything is located, the program is fairly intuitive in general. The built-in Help file is relatively brief, but it explains the program's use well enough. Overall, we were quite impressed with Integard Home, and we think it's a great choice for keeping kids safe online, preventing adults from viewing undesirable content, and monitoring online activities.

Integard Home installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of Integard Home 2.0.0.9021. The trial version is limited to 30 days trial only.
