The internet is a fantastic tool for children, helping them learn, play, and grow. But, just as in life, it makes good sense to be careful. Learn how parental controls can protect your kids through web filtering, thanks to our Internet Security Suite from Netintelligence.
Netintelligence gives you the ability to control and filter which websites and applications your children can access and when they can access them, providing your family protection and a safer internet experience. It protects up to three devices running Microsoft Windows versions 7, 8, 8.1 or 10 (32 and 64 bit).
There are a number of features that you can use depending on your needs. You can:
Plus, if you download our Internet Security Suite onto your Microsoft Windows laptop and you take it away with you on holiday, you're still protected, even abroad.
All our broadband packages include access to our Internet Security Suite for 18 months.
We'll send you details of how to download and install Netintelligence. Once it's on your computer, your kids won't be able to remove it or get around it. You can also install the Symantec Endpoint Protection Package for antivirus and firewall protection.
Once installed, you will be able to get the controls all set. You can find all the details in Netintelligence's Quick Start User Guide.
Netintelligence picks up the names of Windows users on your computer. You can give each user a more meaningful name, decide if you want to actively monitor them and which rules apply to them. You can do this for up to six different users.
When you first install, Netintelligence will protect your family with its Default web blocking rules. These rules will block sites that fall under one of these categories: Adult, Gambling, Threats, Drugs, Hate and Violence, and Social Networking.
It'll also block software and applications that fall under one of these categories: Newsgroups, Peer to Peer, Email, FTP, IRC, Webcam and VOIP.
For more parental control, you can use either the 'Managed Internet' or 'Safe Internet' feature, and you can choose which users you want to apply it to.
With 'Managed Internet', you decide which categories of sites and applications you want to block. You can also restrict (or allow) access to specific websites.
If you choose to use 'Safe Internet', users can only visit websites that you decide are suitable for them to view. All other sites will be blocked.
Another parental safety option you have is to limit the amount of time that members of your family can access the internet.
Use the 'Time Controls' feature to decide when your kids are allowed to use the internet and other computer applications. Each day of the week is split into 30-minute segments, and you can allow or prevent access for each one.
