Can Parental Spyware Keeps Kids Safe Online

Our very own Chris Rothey, president of Net Nanny, was interviewed for The Christian Science Monitor about Parental Control Software. Read what he had to say below:

"In real life, you are going to be very aware of the types of friends that your child is hanging out with. That becomes far more complicated as those social interactions move online and there have been too many cases where dangerous or even deadly things have happened due to liaisons that were created online,” says Chris Rothey, president of Net Nanny, a firm that sells parental control and web-block software.

"As a parent, you have to find that delicate balance between how much you want to be aware and how much you are going to trust your child who frankly isn't fully equipped to make the best decisions," he says.

The firm’s software can inform parents about who their kids are friending on Facebook and other social sites, as well as selectively notify them about conversations, say if a teenager starts communicating with words indicative of overt sexual behavior.

"Any time the software takes action, it tells the child what it did and why it did it," Rothey said.
