ESET Parental Control

Protect your family from unwanted content with parental control

Parental Control

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.
