"If you really want to control what your kids are seeing... 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…blocks porn and profanity before it hits the screen."
— Amanda Morin, ParentSociety.com
"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."
"Pornography has become America's pastime. It is more popular now than baseball."
— Patrick Trueman, former chief, U.S. Justice Department, Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section.
Why use Parental Controls?
Did you know there are more than 14.3 trillion websites live on the Internet?*
Most parental control software vendors attempt to make a list of all web sites in the world, categorize each one based on its content, and then use the list to determine if a web site should be allowed or blocked.
The problem, of course, is that the list must be constantly maintained...
Net Nanny is different. Our software performs its categorization in real-time, as you surf. This means the content on any given web page is categorized as you browse without relying on a list so your family is protected even when new content is added just seconds before.
Net Nanny is smart. It determines the use of words or phrases in context. For example, a search for the word “breast” could refer to cooking, breast cancer or pornography. Net Nanny knows the difference and allows or blocks based on each child’s settings.
