Pictures, Forums and Blog

Parents now have the flexibility to restrict personal information your kids may otherwise post online. With Net Nanny 6.5 you can now block image uploads and/or choose to block them from posting to forums and blogs.

Keyword Blocking

Net Nanny 6.5 allows you to create a customized “black” list of terms and phrases you don’t want your kids to see while online. Keyword filtering lets parents decide if kids should see pages that contain specific words. You can even customize this list for each individual user, giving you the flexibility and control over the internet content your family can view.

Blocks Pornography and Protects Families and Children

Much more important than how it works, is that you know that Net Nanny does work. You have the peace of mind of knowing that you are protecting your children and family with the best internet safety tools available. Net Nanny can block not only pornography, but hate sites, questionable chat rooms and other dangers of the Internet. You can configure Net Nanny to block online game and gambling sites, and even make it so your children can only install and play computer games with parental ratings that you deem appropriate. Net Nanny even offers a simple, easy to use set-up assistant to help parents determine what online activities (Web sites, chat, gaming and social networks) are appropriate based on your family member’s age. Net Nanny uses its own proprietary and patent pending Dynamic Contextual Analysis filtering engine to provide the best Internet filtering available.

Remote Management

Net Nanny has enhanced its internet safety administration tools. Powerful Remote Management tools exist to help parents to manage and maintain Internet safety policies from any Internet connection. Net Nanny has also been enhanced to synchronize your settings almost instantly. Monitor web browsing and instant messaging- from anywhere!

PC Game Blocking

Having worked directly with the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB), Net Nanny is the first parental control software solution to set age-based gaming restrictions using the ESRB rating system and the first to block desktop PC games based on categories, including violence, sex, alcohol, drugs and more.

IM Alert & Analysis

Net Nanny’s improved internet safety Message Monitor feature examines the content of instant messages (IM) and alerts parents via e-mail of potential online predatory, cyberbully and other inappropriate behavior or comments made through popular IM programs. Including both application and web-based IM protocols like Facebook, MySpace, MSN, and Yahoo, Internet predators don't have a chance against parents armed with Net Nanny.

Internet Use Time Controls

Net Nanny's time controls will help you control when your children can and cannot use the Internet. Parents can use Net Nanny to not only limit how long your kids spend on the Internet, but also during what time periods they can access the Internet.

Integration With Popular Search Engines

The new Net Nanny integrates seamlessly with "Safe Search" options found in popular search engines such as Google, Yahoo, Dogpile, AltaVista, Lycos, AllTheWeb, and MSN. This means your children can't search on a search engine and even see links to blocked sites. This new internet safety feature enables better protection against pornographic images when doing an "image only" search. If a child attempts to turn off the safe search capability from the search engine, Net Nanny will turn it back on in real-time as the search is occurring.

The only way to bypass the safe search is with your unique administrator password, which only you as the parent knows. Believe it or not, Net Nanny actually blocks content in multiple languages to provide even more internet safety for your family.

Net Nanny Software is More than Just Web Protection

Did you know that there are many ways your children can access pornography and questionable content on the Internet? Net Nanny provides full internet safety on not just the World Wide Web, but also less known but equally dangerous parts of the Internet like the Usenet, Peer-to-Peer downloading networks, Chat Rooms, Instant Messages, FTP, Forums and email. If you have never heard of some of those areas of the Internet, it is possible that your kids have. But don't worry. Net Nanny knows about them, and protects your children from the bad content on them.

You can receive notifications in real time, hourly, daily, or even weekly. Get set to receive cell phone alerts... in just 2 easy steps!

Customizable "Allowed" or "Blocked" Lists

Net Nanny permits parents to create a customized lists of unacceptable or acceptable Web sites. For example, parents could set up a list (white list) of friendly sites that are always allowed and/or set up a list (black list) of objectionable sites that are always blocked.
