Halifax, Nova Scotia (PRWEB) March 1, 2006
Chaperone is a robust feature rich parental control utility that addresses an unprecedented array of threats:
1) The scheduling features allow control of when programs can be accessed, preventing excessive use or use at undesirable times. Program usage can also be logged to allow parents to monitor which programs are being used at what times.
2) As many as one in five minors receive sexual solicitation or approach through instant messengers, with approximately 70% of these approaches occurring at home. Chaperone eliminates this risk by allowing parents to control which AOL, MSN, and Yahoo contacts their children can have conversations with. Conversations can also be logged to help identify dangerous behavior.
3) Access to adult websites, chat rooms, and other undesirable websites can be denied through the integrated Internet filters. These allow filtering of pages based on their URL or through keyword filters. Browsing activity can also be logged, allowing parents to monitor their children’s online behavior.
4) Peer-to-peer file sharing programs, which are common portals of pornography, can be completely disabled. This threat, combined with the increasing threat of legal action by recording studios, makes it imperative for parents to control access.
5) For parents wanting to monitor all computer activity Chaperone also includes an integrated keystroke-logging component. The keystroke logger can be set to log all activity or activity in only selected programs.
Chaperone is especially distinguished for its easy to use graphical interface. Even parents with minimal computer knowledge have few problems configuring security policies.
