Alerts and Reporting
Available for :Windows Mac Android iOS Kindle Fire
Net Nanny® helps parents stay informed and aware of their family’s online activity.
Net Nanny’s parental control software allows parents to receive email alerts and online activity notifications to let you know if your child is attempting to view an inappropriate website. Parental controls help parents monitor their family’s online activity, filter the Internet, and give them visibility to their children’s digital use.
With Net Nanny®, parents can set up email notifications to be alerted to their child’s online activity if a restricted website is attempted to be accessed. Parents can take comfort knowing that Net Nanny’s award-winning technology is protecting their family from adult content and inappropriate websites and giving them insight into their child’s online activity. For example, if a child wants to ask for permission to access a website that is blocked, that request will send an email notification to the parent and the parent can then approve the blocked page to allow their child access.
Be Alerted to Dangerous Online Searches
Parents know that visibility into a kid's online activities is essential in order to allow a timely response to issues. By viewing Net Nanny’s usage reports of your family’s online activity, parents can take action if inappropriate websites are accessed and can address them with their child.
By enabling notifications, parents can stay up to date with their family’s online searches and keep a close eye if they see inappropriate action occurring. With an overwhelming number of websites available online that may contain dangerous or harmful content, you can use Net Nanny® to stay aware of your family’s digital habits.
Prevent Cyberbullying, Self-Harm and Risky Behavior
While it may be impossible to completely prevent cyberbullying, self-harm, suicide or risky behavior, with Net Nanny’s parental control software, you can have visibility into the terms your child is searching for online.
Having visibility to online searches can be an important tool to alert parents of troubling issues that may arise in your family’s lives. With the sensitive and often private nature of these issues, being aware of a potential issue can allow parents the opportunity to address their child in a safe environment.
How Does the Net Nanny® Dashboard Work?
The Admin console is the hub of your family’s online activity that is protected with Net Nanny®. The dashboard gives you an overview of their latest online searches and notifications, including:
- Alerts: View links to Alerts for your license and subscription status.
- This Week’s Activity: View the total number of websites that were Blocked or Warned for the week.
- Top Blocked Domains: View the Top Blocked Domains, which is a list of the web sites by category most often blocked during the past week.
- Web Events: View Web Events, which is a list of the web site categories blocked during the past week.
How to Set Up Net Nanny® Email Alerts
Net Nanny® does not automatically send email reports to parents, because you first need to enable email notifications for your account. You can access your family’s online activity reports and enable notifications within the Admin console. By accessing the Admin console, you can have insight into your family’s digital use and access your account remotely from anywhere with an Internet connection.
To access the Admin console, go to https://admin.netnanny.com and log in to your account with your credentials. From within the Admin console, you can enable your account to send email notifications based on the settings you choose. This enables you to get email notifications in real-time, daily, weekly, or monthly when a website is Blocked or Warned. Alerts can also tell you when someone has requested access to a specific website or overridden a blocked page.
An overview of all the reporting actions available are below:
- View reports of Warned or Blocked websites
- View reports of online search terms
- Enable email notifications to alert when Blocks/Warns occur
- Be alerted in real-time when a Block/Warn occurs
- Receive a Summary Report of occurrences daily, weekly or monthly
Since Net Nanny’s Admin console can be accessed from any computer with an Internet connection, parents can have the flexibility to update their email notifications and alert preferences whenever they need to. Parents also have the ability to review online usage reports of their child’s activity and review the websites they Allow, Warn or Block.
