    "great product"

    June 8, 2009  |   By jgreen23007

    Version: Safe Eyes 5.3

    Pros

    I am not well versed in technology, but my son bought this product for me to use on my computer. When my grandchildren come over, I am comforted in knowing they won't be able to view objectionable material. They're great kids, but peace of mind...

    Cons

    It seems pretty straightforward to me.

    Pros

    Safe Eyes blocks all inappropriate sites including YouTube videos. It gives us peace of mind knowing they are consistently rated as "THE BEST" software by reviews and buyers.

    Cons

    Has beat all expectations!!

    Summary

    I recommend Safe Eyes to anoyone. It is a great program that can be used by anyone who does not want to be exposed to inappropriate sites. Family members continue to comment on how Safe Eyes continues to guard even at different locations. I know it has given me a peace of mind knowing that there are extra set of eyes following internet activity at my house. I highly recommend it!!

    "Safe Eyes gives me comfort when I'm not available."

    June 8, 2009  |   By KentuckyTom

    Version: Safe Eyes 5.3

    Pros

    Safe Eyes blocks You Tube as well as all other sites that I deem inaprropriate for ALL unwanted viewers on my computer and I, especially, appreciate the instant alerting sysytem just in case.

    Cons

    I have found nothing about Safe Eyes that I wasn't 100% satisfied.

    Summary

    I like Safe Eyes and "highly" recommend it to all parents and grandparents who have potential computer users under the ages of 18. I appreciate what the Safe Eyes team has created and, hopefully, will continue to upgrade their products to off-set the continual threat of inappropriate material on our computers.

    "Safe Eyes gives me the peace of mind even when I'm away"

    Version: Safe Eyes 5.3

    Pros

    Safe Eyes blocks YouTube videos that are inappropriate. The instant alerts let me know if someone at home is trying to look at something inappropriate. They are consistently rated #1 by reviews. Has anyone tried their iPhone app?

    Cons

    none, i do not have any

    Summary

    I like Safe Eyes and recommend it to anyone with users under the age of 18. I don't want them to be exposed to harmful stuff and you should hear what their grandparents are saying. When they go to nana's they still login as their safe eyes account works there, same settings follow them. I appreciate what the Safe Eyes team has done. Not sure there is anything else they can do to make it better, i'm sure they'll think of it.

    "WORSE THAN ANY VIRUS"

    April 6, 2009  |   By letitfly

    Version: Safe Eyes 5.3

    Pros

    There is nothing good about it. It is a scam and the reviews must all be fake.

    Cons

    This program takes over your machine and controls it. It is worse than any spyware.

    Summary

    It blocks many urls and does not change its functions even after you change the settings. I put it on three computers. Even with minimal controls, they all moved at a snail's pace. That is, except my Dell desktop, it has not beenable to connect to the internet, open a cd or do anything since I installed this junk.
    don't believe me? Buy it, install it and try to delete it. You cannot. Even with the cancellation code, it appears to delete but if you check processes, it is still running. You can end it, restart and there it is again.
    I never had any security or hacking issues before safe eyes; since then I have had my credit card compromised.

    Just do without a computer if you are concerned about internet safety rather than download this junk because, once it is installed, you won't have a functional machine anyway. Run away.
