Children are spending more and more time online and it is impossible to be there to supervise them all the time. Thankfully, Qustodio for Mac offers an easy solution for monitoring and protecting your kids online. The ability to block certain Web sites and searches and set limits on applications and Internet use are all included in this application.

This application is available for free, but some features such as setting limits on applications are only accessible in the premium version, which can be purchased for $49.95. The installation process is straightforward, but does take five to 10 minutes to complete. After the application has been installed on your Mac, you'll need to sign up for an account and set up some preferences before you can actually begin using the application. Everything in Qustodio for Mac is managed via an in-browser interface, and you'll need to sign in to your account before you can make any adjustments to the app. It is quite easy to block certain Web sites and searches, and you also have the ability to set specific rules and limits for different users. The application also tracks your children's Internet usage. To access the program you can click on the Q icon in the top-right corner of your Mac to bring up the menu. The application runs quietly in the background and doesn't have any impact on the performance of your computer. Once a Web site is blocked, any time it is accessed a message will be displayed preventing the user from using the blocked site.

Qustodio for Mac helps parents protect their children from inappropriate content found online, limit the time they spend online, and restrict the use of specific applications.
