    "Very affordable and easy to use"

    June 30, 2010  |   By 602user


    easy to use, affordable, filter IM, provides reports


    user interface is little bit outdated


    Tried for two weeks and gladly paid $19.95 for it. My favourite feature is that it allows a daily limit, so you can set it for two hours and if your kid reach the limit it will block access to the Internet. You can also block access to the Internet certain hours. I had to do some configuration changes as by defualt it even blocked Google, but user interface allows to set a different category, e.g. porn, hate, weapons..etc.. then software automatically block these sites and parent can see in log what your kids was doing. It does not replace "parental control", but it definitely make my life easier. I especially likes the moment when kids says, crap my computer time is over I need to go out. This software may not be for everyone as parent control interface is little bit outdated, but it definitelly beat any other software I know on the cost level.
