ESET®, a global pioneer in IT security for more than two decades, launches today Beta version of its new ESET Parental Control for Android app. As a thank you to all Beta testers, ESET is offering free access to the app’s security features such as Web Guard or Time Management for six months at no cost.
According to Ofcom Report on Internet Safety Measures, there has been a significant increase in access to, ownership of and use of tablet computers by children of all ages since 2013. Many older children also own smartphones (20% of 8-11s and 65% of 12-15s) and among 12-15s, this is the device they would most miss. ESET want to ensure that children of all ages can access the internet more safely, without fear of online threats such as malvertising, phishing and malware.
“ESET Parental Control app for Android has been designed to provide parents the confidence to safeguard children on smart devices by giving them protection, user experience and performance through a number of free and premium features,“ said Branislav Orlik, Product Manager at ESET. “Our next job is to protect families against online threats, so they can enjoy the wealth of information and entertainment available online.”
ESET Parental Control for Android is a child-friendly all-in-one family protection system which helps parents to build a respectful relationship with their kids who use their own smartphones or tablets. Designed to help parents protect their children against internet threats and inappropriate web pages, the app boasts a wealth of security features and a friendly user interface.Features include:
- Application Guard: blocks inappropriate content based on the child’s age by default.
- Time Management: allows parents to limit the time their child spends playing games and other apps, even when the child is away from the home.
- Web Guard: blocks internet threats by checking websites against ESET’s databases.
- Child Locator: allows parents to request the current location of their child at any time.
“BETA testing is really important to us,” continues Orlik. “We’ve worked really hard to make ESET Parental Control for Android user friendly, unintrusive and useful for children and parents alike. However, nothing compares to the feedback provided parents and children in all geographies. That’s why have decided to offer premium features for all BETA testing families completely for free without any commitment for a full six months.”
