ESET introduces first-ever software application designed to protect and monitor children's onlin
Nigeria, Nov. 24, 2015 /ESETNGBLOG/ -- ESET®, a global pioneer in IT security for more than two decades, today announced the launch of its ESET Parental Control for Android app for Nigeria and Ghana. A first-of-its-kind from ESET, the app leverages ESET's existing technology, coupling it with new features to aid parents in keeping their children safe and protected when exploring the online world.
Amongst the new features offered, the 'Web Guard' function provides age and category-based filters to restrict children's access to inappropriate web content. Parents can also regulate the amount of time their children spend on gaming and internet browsing through the 'Application Guard & Time Management' function, as well as switch on the 'Child Locator' service in extreme circumstances, to track their child's location.
ESET Parental Control for Android is built in two modes to fit its users: the first mode is the Child mode, which is the applied child protection mode, and the second, the Parent mode, which contains all the monitoring tools and set-ups every parent would need to look after their kids. In this mode, parents can decide if they want to only monitor the child's online behaviour or whether to add any additional restrictions, such as age-based automatic blocking mode for applications and web-surfing.
The app also provides two-way communication between children and parents, for example, the children can request special permission to access certain apps, web content or ask for extra gaming/browsing time, all of which makes the ESET Parental Control a unique application for the Android platform. Additionally, the app displays a child-friendly interface with images and language that is understandable for children.
