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.

"Clashed with Ad-aware, my antispam software"

September 05, 2010  |  By sidchat

 |  Version: Integard Home 2.0.0.9021

Pros

Nothing good

Cons

Could not un install the program. Had to delete by restoring computer to an earlier date. The program said it had mailed the activation/ deletion to my email account, which it didn't. My spyware acutally said program had a trojan for which I deleted

Summary

Too risky.

November 22, 2007  |  By nima_rm

Easy to use, small file size, many different features to choose from that I've never seen on any other filtering softwares. I feel completely at ease when any of my children are using the computer.

"A very useful and powerful yet lightweight bit of software. "

October 04, 2007  |  By brian_hodges76

 |  Version: Integard 1.0.3

Pros

This software has too many great features to describe in this review. I reccomend downloading it and giving it a go yourself. I can mention a few though:

- Does a really good job of blocking and even searching for all those nasty sites that you don't want your kids to see.

- An inbuilt blacklist of sites that are automatically blocked as well as the ability to add additional sites that you wish to allow or block. You can also choose to block everything except for the sites you want to allow. I thought this was particularly good.

- An inbuilt keywords list to prevent searching and displaying pages that contain any of those nasty words plus the ability to add your own keywords that you don't want coming up or being searched.

- A personal information section where you can add your details to stop kids filling in online forms and sending their details over chat programs.

- Ability to set data limits and time limits for individual users.

- Ability to monitor emails and chat.

- Generate reports on web, email and chat usage.

- Great turnaround on support responses if you are having trouble with it.

All in all this is a very powerful little tool that I would reccomend to anyone who would like to keep their kids safe or even just monitor what is happening with your internet connection.

Cons

There were a couple of minor issues in trying to get Integard to work with other software that uses the internet but I contacted the support team and they were very helpful in telling me how to allow several programs and once I knew how to allow them it was very easy to add more.

"Very easy to install and configure and does a good job."

September 24, 2007  |  By todd.hayden

 |  Version: Integard 1.0.3

Pros

Integard has all the functionality you would expect from a product like this without making it complicated to use. The ability to set download limits is a nice feature I havn't seen in the other filters. I also like the browser based admin that lets me access it over the network.
