What is parental control?
Parental control allows parents to restrict their children’s use of electronic devices. Restrictions typically take the following forms:
- Content filters block access to age-inappropriate or other objectionable content
- Usage controls place time limits
- Computer-usage management restricts or enforces use of software
- Monitoring tracks location and device activity
Why you need parental control
Most parents are concerned about their children's computer use for a variety of reasons. While computers have become a major part of life for kids, so are doing homework, participating in various activities and playing outdoors.
Online predators frequenting chat rooms and social pages are a concern, as is access to adult-oriented or other inappropriate sites. Sometimes innocent searches turn up not-so-innocent results.
