Web Filter Maker Recognizes Internet Safety Month
SALT LAKE CITY, May 31, 2011- When it comes to safety on the Internet, there are widely accepted precautions parents can take to protect children from online bullying, predators and objectionable content such as pornography. There are also loopholes kids use online to get around parental control software such as web filtering. In recognition of Internet Safety Month (June), ContentWatch (www.contentwatch.com) points out six technical loopholes parents should know.
The company is also giving away 2,000 free licenses of Net Nanny (www.netnanny.com), an effective and flexible parental control solution and web filter, at the Net Nanny Facebook page. http://on.fb.me/mtdGx5
Six technical loopholes kids use to bypass security measures:
"Kids seem to have a technical advantage over their parents," said Russ Warner, CEO of ContentWatch, maker of Net Nanny. "It is important for parents to know some of the tricks kids use to get around measures put in place for their safety on the Internet."
Speaking with your children and setting rules and common sense practices go a long way to protect children online. In order to truly provide a safe Internet environment, parents should be aware of these loopholes kids can use to get around safety precautions.

Net Nanny is an important and effective tool for Internet safety. It protects children from many of today's dangerous situations. In fact, during one recent 30-day period, Net Nanny effectively blocked more than 83 million pornography, lingerie, and adult/mature websites for its customers.
During Internet Safety Month, the first 2,000 people who 'like' the Net Nanny Facebook page will receive a free license of Net Nanny. ContentWatch encourages people to ask questions, comment on their online concerns or provide Internet safety solutions they have implemented.
Net Nanny is a powerful web filtering tool parents can use to help provide Internet safety for their children. It directly addresses many of the safety concerns parents face, including:
"Parents can protect their children from Internet problems with education and by instilling strong rules and precautions," said Warner. "Always remember, kids are natural-born technologists- they know how to find the tricks to get around precautions. By openly speaking with children and placing these and other safety measures in place, parents can make the online experience wonderful and safe for their children."
