Child Protection Software

Available for :

Windows Android iOS Kindle Fire

Net Nanny Social is a very powerful tool enabling parents to easily monitor their child's activities on popular social networks.

The product is essentially a web-based dashboard that shows a child's friends, pictures, videos, and posts on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, Google+ and LinkedIn.  It sends parents regular alerts to help identify unknown friends (potential stalkers or predators) and cyberbullying or self-harm activity. Parents can also view any pictures or videos to ensure none are going to damage a reputation. Net Nanny Social monitors the social networks kids use, regardless of which device the child uses to access the Internet (3G/4G, Wi-Fi, home network, or hotspot).

What makes Net Nanny Social different from the social monitoring feature of Net Nanny for Windows? Essentially, the social monitoring feature of Net Nanny for Windows only monitors a child on Facebook, while Net Nanny Social monitors a child's friends, pictures, and posts on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, Google+ and LinkedIn, with more networks to be added.  

Net Nanny Social is sold as a family license - it can monitor all the children in your home for just one annual fee.

Net Nanny Social Product Features

Comprehensive Social Network Database

  • Facebook
  • Instagram
  • Twitter
  • Pinterest
  • Tumblr
  • Google+
  • LinkedIn

Easy Setup — no software needed

Net Nanny Social is cloud-based, not software-based, so you don’t have to install anything. You access the internet-based platform via your web browser. After subscribing to the annual license, parents log in to Net Nanny Social using any web browser and add their child’s information, either their email address or social network account information. Then they can view their child’s social activity using the simple web dashboard. It provides ultimate parental control.

Language Detection

42% of children under the age of 18 have been cyberbullied, according to some estimates. Net Nanny Social monitors the language used on your child’s social networking accounts in order to identify harmful language and online threats such as cyberbullying, cyber-stalking, and grooming.

Alert Notifications

After alert notifications are activated, parents will receive text or email notifications if dangerous or inappropriate activities are detected on their child’s social network accounts.

Access to Photos and Videos

Net Nanny Social allows parents to view the photos and videos published online by their child. It also allows them to see video and pictures of their children that are posted online by others.

Access to Friends

Net Nanny Social lets parents monitor any friend-related activities. Parents can see details about their child’s online friends, know when new friends are added, or even “un-friend” others. Net Nanny Social lets parents see their child’s friends list, monitors activities related to those friends, and shows the same details about these friends that their child sees when online.

Activity Reports

Parents receive daily or weekly reports from Net Nanny Social about the activities on their child’s social network accounts. The report gives details and shows an easy-to-read chart representing a threat level of inappropriate or threatening contacts and communications with their child.

Intuitive Dashboard and Reports

Net Nanny Social organizes all content found while monitoring active social network accounts into a single, intuitive dashboard. From this dashboard, parents are able to easily peruse their child’s social activities, get information about their child’s friends, and see wall posts, pictures and videos on their accounts.

Resources for Parents

Net Nanny Social offers parents useful resources such as a Glossary of commonly used terms and acronyms on social networks to help them better understand the confusing lingo and make informed decisions about their children’s online safety.
