On June 26th, 2014 Net Nanny released an update to the reporting features for the latest versions of the Windows, Mac and Android products. This update allows families to see more details about websites, content categories, dates and times, and other important details for their Net Nanny users. This update does not require any updates to the client software, but this update did reset the reporting data found in the dashboard reports found when logging in to the Net Nanny Administration console. After the update the dashboard report will momentarily appear empty while new reporting data arrives from the Net Nanny clients.
We apologize for this inconvenience, while we enhance the product to better serve the needs of the individuals and families we protect.
