The program was helpful for me- it gave me peace of mind. In fact, we went on to purchase the program and have it on all home computers. As far as I know or can find out it has been super effective. No amount of Net Nanny can replace some therapy but it is a great "holder" in the meantime. It was really helpful to be able to trial this system for free.

We first enrolled in the trial program and it has been so successful that we have taken out a year's subscription with the idea to continue subscribing as my brother has felt quite safe knowing that he cannot fall again. Your program is amazingly easy to use and once we ironed out some issues I had encountered initially, everything has been a breeze.
The confidence my brother now has knowing that he is safe from his own worst enemy is wonderful. Your program has made this possible and for that my family is very thankful.
I use Net Nanny for my own children but also as a leader of a junior high youth group, I urge all the parents to consider using it too. It's ease of use, yet high level of security, makes it a step above all other programs out there! Like I tell other parents, you cannot afford to not use it! Even if you trust your kids, it is a great protection against inadvertent searches. In addition, the customer service and technical support has been superb!!
Installation of the software was a breeze and gave me no trouble. I was skeptical that this software would still be on my husband's computer a week after I started actually using it, but as of yet he hasn’t figured out a way to uninstall it or get around it. He still hints around occasionally that we could just take this silly program off, but after six months I think he is starting to understand, that isn’t happening. Since installing the software I have noticed a shift in several areas of our relationship. First off, he wastes a whole lot less time on his computer. Second, he seems to be more affectionate towards me. I noticed this almost immediately, and honestly figured it was just an effort to get me to unblock his computer. It has been almost six months however and he is definitely showing me more attention. I enjoy being able to look over the web history and if need be print it out so we can look over it together. I have been so impressed with the Net Nanny software that I have now installed it on all three of the computers in the house. The software filter seems to catch most sites that are porn. Overall I have been very pleased with your software and what it has done for our relationship. I did not realize how much of a problem porn was in our relationship. The amount of time that our daughters and I have my husband's undivided attention has more than doubled. Grades have improved across the board in our house. Thank you again for the free license. I have shared information with other parents concerning things to keep an eye on. Facebook is a safer place. We had taken our teenage daughters computer out of her room a few months ago due to what we found just looking through her search history. After using Net Nanny on my husband’s computer we purchased and installed the software and after getting the settings perfect on her computer we were able to put it back in her room yesterday. I feel safe knowing I can check her reports on Net Nanny and set time limits so I don’t have to worry that she is up and on the computer after she should be asleep. We have an awesome home alarm system but the Net Nanny software does just as much if not more to keep my family safe. It was a little strange at first to basically tell my husband what he could not look at on his computer and even on his phone. Once I went through a few of his reports however that feeling went away and it was replaced by a feeling of love and respect for our relationship. Thank You!

If you really want to control what your kids are seeing, you need to install software that can block certain sites and alert you to what they’re doing. I’m a big fan of Net Nanny, because it’s a proactive tool that blocks porn and profanity before it hits the screen.

I love this program! The PC version has done wonders for us, and my husband has stopped looking at pornography all together on the computer.
I/we have used netnanny for over a year now, and have mostly found it very useful. One of my fav features is that I can log in as an admin to any computer with internet and make adjustments.
So if I am not available to go over to the person's home, I can still change time usage or make an exception to something that is fine for them to use. I use the exceptions A LOT to both block and allow sites.

Thank you so much for developing Net Nanny and for helping out families and individuals who suffer from this addiction. Net Nanny has been a salvation for us and it allows my husband relative freedom to surf the net with a "seat belt." Your service department is AMAZING. My questions were answered promptly and in an intelligible manner ( I'm no tech-wizard). I have recommended Net Nanny to several friends who are concerned about their children viewing inappropriate items.
I can't say enough about your team or your software. I hope you will continue to offer this program. I stumbled upon it when we were in a very dark place and to have instant support was truly a God-send.
You are good people helping others become better and stronger!
THANK YOU!!!! SIncerely, Grateful Wife, Mission Viejo, CA
This program has saved our family! I cannot thank you enough for the sponsorship. We have engaged in counseling but this program has been a huge tool for accountability. I don't think we will ever go without it.
Sincerely, Grateful Wife, Austin, TX
I can't thank you enough for the Addict Sponsor program that you supply for struggling pornography addicts. My then fiancé, now husband, had been struggling with his addiction for more than 10 years. He had tried for years to combat it with only 2 weeks of abstaining to show for his fervent effort. He seemed to find his way through any Internet block at hard-moments.
When we became engaged, we continued to work to overcome this together. We worked our way up to a month of abstaining at a time. What pushed us through to 10 months pornography-free was net nanny. It helped us to keep our eyes on the goal, and find our forever together.
We cannot thank you enough for the license for net nanny, and our renewed lives together. Thank you so much for everything.
We are a foster home with teens and in the past have been surprised with what kids know and will try today. You are helping our fears of perps and others who would take advantage of kids. Keep in your hearts you are providing an essential guardian for our children.
Keep up your pleasant and knowledgeable technical support. Your pleasant and helpful attitude makes it truly reassuring to own your product.
It was a great product while I was dealing with a husband that has a sex addiction. I just wanted you to know I truly thought your product was great and would recommend it to anyone who needs this kind of block on their computers.
I am so glad I bought the Net Nanny software to protect my 15yr old daughter. It put a man behind bars as the software recorded a conversation and was used in the case. I would highly recommend more parents do this to their kids computers since you can't watch everything they do on the Internet. Thank God I found this software.
My wife and I have been very pleased with Net Nanny. It has been frustrating at times for my 13 and 15 year old sons, in that they seem to have been blocked from some sites unnecessarily, but they've shrugged their shoulders and perhaps sighed, and then moved on to other things. They are used to it and don't mind. I have explained to them that what NN is likely doing is blocking the 'innocent' site because of the associated advertisements. They understood that.
They have also said that NN has been very helpful in preventing them from pursuing unwise choices in a few moments of foolish thinking. They've appreciated that.
I certainly appreciate NN very much as it gives me great peace of mind. Better too much filtering than too little.
Thank you for your excellent work and service.
We've had Net Nanny controls installed on our computers for more than a year now, and we've been so pleased with the results we've received. Not only do we have great peace of mind that unwanted content will not pop up on our computers, but it's also stopped others who have unsuspectingly tried to use our laptop to look up pornography. Thanks to your top-notch filtering and email notifications, we've been able to confront any who have done so.
Pornography is a terrible addiction, and we're grateful for your help in containing the problem in at least some lives.
We use NetNanny at home and love it!!
Thank you so much for your help and patient effort. Everything is working fine now and all is well. Your company and your product is helping to keep a marriage together. Thank you for all you did.
I just wanted to write to express my appreciation for developing an all around great product... I'm a customer for life.
I just want to thank you for your great product. I am not the most tech/computer savvy parent and your service was very easy to acquire (download), set up, work with (ongoing) and gives me huge peace of mind with regard to what my young teenager (and younger child) is doing on the internet. It is such a relief to have this service and to have the control to manage what is able to viewed on our home computer by our children. Thank you... a thousand thank yous! I highly recommend Net Nanny all the time to any parent who will listen - especially to parents with older children who may be old enough to sometimes be at home alone but definitely not old enough to be roaming around on the internet unsupervised.
Thank you so much for providing [Net Nanny] so I can see what my children are doing online. I can't tell you the peace of mind it brings to parents. I discovered my son was viewing websites that were so awful, I couldn't even imagine him seeing such filth. My heart was broken... and still is... however, now I have the tools to know when or if he is still trying to access this garbage. The Internet is such a wonderful place, but there's so many terrible things that are available to young minds.
Your service is vital, and so very much appreciated.

I give your product accolades to parents and also to adults experiencing difficulties with internet porno sites/addiction/compulsions. The best feature is the remote administration capability that allows anyone to monitor and adjust filters remotely. One of the deciding criteria was in fact the ability to override for specific URL, and the out-of-the-box detail that allows efficient but thorough set up. Customer service is also incredible, which is number 3 but on the deal-breaker critical list (with remote admin and detailed setup).
I really appreciate the array of reporting capabilities and automated notices to the administrator - this is what real control is about - the ability to summarize and see exactly where our loved ones are going or trying to go on the internet. This reporting capability makes interventions and/or meaningful discussion possible - no guesswork and games!
I think you have the best product I've seen...
It is important to me to protect my family, yet I must also use the computer for work. Very few companies would go to the lengths that you have to support a $29 software license. You have gone above and beyond what is expected. I have recommended your software to my colleagues. Please let everyone involved with customer service and tech support at ContentWatch know how pleased you have made this customer.
I have downloaded trials of many parental control programs (trying to find just the right software), and this is by far the best one. I think it will work great for our family.
I'm very happy with your product, I've tried a couple of different filtering software programs in the past year and yours is the only one that didn't break something on my computers!
I have two 12 year old sons and a 10 year old daughter and your software allows them to surf the web safely.
I also work in the computer customer service industry as a network engineer and know what it takes to support customers.
You guys rock! Thank you for getting to my issue so quickly. Great software and even better support!

I conducted hours of research and trials before deciding upon ContentProtect, and the software has exceeded my expectations for ease-of-use and effectiveness.
I typed two letters in a field and the auto-complete feature gave me some of the options that had been previously used. They were scary and violent sites that were regularly visited by my son. After your listing the files in my computer, it was discovered he had an addiction and is now in counseling for this. Thank you for your service. It is beyond valuable, probably closer to "absolutely necessary."
I'm 18 and I am on the Internet mostly at school where I have accidentally stumbled across a ton of perverted stuff people have downloaded. ContentWatch helps a lot to track down and purge it. You have helped me in my fight against filth.
I'm truly impressed with my new cleaning ability provided by you folks. Most PC users have the never-ending task to keep a pc "clean" from uninvited porn material from the Internet. I'm truly impressed with my new cleaning ability provided by you folks and keeping my pc clean is not a big task anymore. Thank you immensely.
I have often wondered how I could clean up my PC and you helped me achieve this goal. This has been the best money I have spent in a long time. THANK YOU!
William C. Leary
I have a commercial website for our retail business and my girlfriend sent me a link to your website because of all the junk emails we get. I purchased "ContentWatch" and never knew something like this was available and so EASY to use!! I LOVE IT!!! It saves me hours of time from deleting unwanted "smut" emails, especially with my grandkids that come from out-of-state and use Grandmas' computer. THANK YOU!
Finally I don't feel totally helpless! Since I'm not at all technical, I've never known - until now - that I could clean up my computer. Thanks!
We love ContentWatch! It works great. It's the first time we have been able to relax while our children were on the Internet.
Marc and Debbie Halley
I am so grateful I installed ContentWatch. It helped me discover a serious addiction one of my sons had to pornography.
Mother of three
Thank you so much for the peace of mind you have given us, knowing we do not have to worry about our granddaughter running into pornography.
Grateful Grandparents from Minnesota
My husband and I have been concerned about not having control over what pops up on the computer screen. We've been especially worried for our kids and hate having them exposed to all the garbage. Thank you for all three of your products. We use them all.
Thanks to your software I traced the pornography on our computer back to my daughter's boyfriend. He is now her ex-boyfriend since we found out what he was doing.
My husband thinks I'm just an ignorant wife who has no clue about his pornography addiction. With ContentCleanup I've been erasing his porn files every day without his knowledge. So who's the ignorant one?
Just a quick email to say thanks for your ContentWatch software! The download was seamless and the product works great. I thought my 16 year old was gonna have an attack of some sort but even now he understands what internet protection is all about. My only regret is I should have done this sooner. Thanks again...
