Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
This updated parental-control program protects your children from accessing sites deemed unsuitable, although we did find some functionality issues. APE (Automated Porn Eliminator) sports a comprehensible interface that allows parents to ban specific Web sites and to create a word list to help block sites that contain offensive content. An ignore list allows you to specify Web sites that may override this feature. A record of attempts made to access off-limits sites is logged giving the username, date, time, and banned URL. This application features a PC time monitor for performing a program and computer shutdown at specified times, but unfortunately we weren't able to get this feature to work. Parents can create a list of certain applications they don't want their kids to access; also unfortunately, we could still access applications that were supposedly blocked. All in all, parents and system administrators looking for a practical Web site blocker could use this one, but more operative applications are easy to find.

Developer's Description

Automated Porn Eliminator is the parental control software which blocks pornographic content in peer-to-peer programs (imesh and morpheus currently supported). APE also blocks adult content in most browsers. Features include password protection at different levels, encryption, automatic computer shutdown between certain times, file locking to prevent tampering, user edited content and URL word lists, logging of attempts to view adult content and a host of other useful features. This porn blocker also has an application access feature, which allows parents to restrict kid's use of any particular installed program. APE also enables parents to monitor their child's usage and change settings completely online.
