PC Game Blocking
Having worked directly with the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB), Net Nanny 6.0 is the first parental control software solution to set age-based gaming restrictions using the ESRB rating system and the first to block desktop PC games based on categories, including violence, sex, alcohol, drugs and more.
IM Alert & Analysis
Net Nanny’s improved internet safety Message Monitor feature examines the content of instant messages (IM) and alerts parents via e-mail to potential online predatory behavior, cyberbullying and other inappropriate contacts and comments made through popular IM programs.
Social Network Profile Reporting
Parents can easily access and view their children’s social networking activities on commonly used sites like Facebook. Reporting provides details about social networking profiles including friends’ lists, pictures, personal descriptions and more.
Secure Website Filtering/Blocking
Net Nanny 6.0 now filters the content of secure Web sites and aggressively blocks attempts to get around filtering by blocking secure proxy and encrypted Web sites. Using secure proxy Web sites is the number one method used by tech-savvy teens to circumvent desktop filters.
Integration With Popular Search Engines
The new Net Nanny integrates seamlessly with “Safe Search” options found in popular search engines such as Google, Yahoo, Dogpile, AltaVista, Lycos, AllTheWeb, and MSN. This means your children can’t search on a search engine and even see links to blocked sites. This new internet safety feature enables better protection against pornographic images when doing an “image only” search. If a child attempts to turn off the safe search capability from the search engine, Net Nanny will turn it back on in real-time as the search is occurring.
The only way to bypass the safe search is with your unique administrator password, which only you as the parent knows. Believe it or not, Net Nanny actually blocks content in multiple languages to provide even more internet safety for your family.
Net Nanny Software is More than Just Web Protection
Did you know that there are many ways your children can access pornography and questionable content on the Internet? Net Nanny provides full internet safety on not just the World Wide Web, but also less known but equally dangerous parts of the Internet like the Usenet, Peer-to-Peer downloading networks, Chat Rooms, Instant Messages, FTP, Forums and email. If you have never heard of some of those areas of the Internet, it is possible that your kids have. But don’t worry. Net Nanny knows about them, and protects your children from the bad content on them.
