Parental control software is a type of software tool for your home computers that controls computer use, filters the Web content, thus allowing parents to secure a safe overall online experience for their family. When choosing a parental control software tool for your family, consider necessary features it should include. First and foremost, the program should be user-friendly. Secondly, the package should be protected with a password and not easily turned off by knowledgeable kids and teens. It should filter or block anything that a parent finds inappropriate for a kid. Some software packages include profanity masking - even in e-mails and instant messages - a proxy guard to keep your child from visiting a proxy website to avoid the parental control programs, and social networking control programs to block or control your kid's behavior on popular sites, such as Facebook and MySpace. There are also programs that offer chat monitoring. This feature is great for blocking inappropriate words and keeping detailed reports of live conversations for you to know who your child is chatting with and what they are discussing when you are unable to control. Other features which parents may consider useful include time restricting which allows you to establish a schedule for your kid's Internet use to certain times of the day and reporting features which will give you a detailed rundown of all of the Web activities on your PC. Some of the parental controls also have pre-set profiles grounded on age specially designed to create a user-friendly set-up for computer-illiterate parents who want to shield their kids from some of the dangers associated with browsing the Internet. Some programs allow parents to use the package on a network containing up to 3 home computers. This feature is especially great, if you have a few computers at home or if your child has their own laptop. Although the software packages have much in common and are designed to allow parents to control computer usage and filter the Web content, they are different in features that may make one or another work better for your family or situation. For example, some software tools really work well with social networking sites while some do not, so if your kid has a profile on any of these websites, you will want to pick out a program that has those features. Each software package has something different to offer, so take the time to read each review carefully to find out which software program is the most suitable for your family.
