Security is something very important to take into account with regard to new technologies. And to make sure children don't access any contents that aren't appropriate for them you can always use an application like Qustodio.
Full control on what is viewed
Qustodio is a very easy-to-use application with which it is possible to control the contents that children can access when they use a computer, at the same time that it will be possible to control how long they have used it.
The application has two elements and an assistant that is launched after the installation:
- The assistant will help the user to define his/her user account, the amount of children that have access to the computer (age, sex,...) and the user accounts with which they will access.
- A small icon (that can be hidden) from which you will be able to see if the system is active and to access the configuration.
- A web interface that can be accessed by means of the browser in which it will be possible to specify exactly what contents are blocked and which aren't, as well as modifying the user data, adding other computers, etc.
Qustodio catalogs the access with three different parameters: blocked, notification (that allows websites to be accessed, but notifying the user about it) and accepted. These three parameters can be defined for a list of themes that cover from general news and politics to others that are more crude like pornography and violence.
Therefore, if you want to make sure you have control on the kind of contents that your children will be able to view on the computer, you only have to download Qustodio.
