The FBI and parenting experts advise parents to be vigilant and involved in their children's daily internet use. Action Alert | Free Parental Control offers parents the choice of a 100% free solution and a more comprehensive Maximum Protection upgrade option to help deal with these challenges.
According to the recent Pew Internet survey, 95% of US students between 12 and 17 go online and 88% of those surveyed said they had witnessed users being cruel to others on a social networking site.
According to co-founder Brian Lawson “Action Alert' Free Parental Control solution was designed so that any parent, regardless of technical skill, can downloaded it on a child or teens PC and have it running in just seconds.” Once installed, a combination of parental control features like content filters, activity monitoring and alert notifications are enabled for the protected user. Along with time use controls and the ability to adjust settings remotely, Action Alert allows parents to enforce the rules they set for their kids' safe computer use and be alerted when online missteps occur.
Action Alert helps teens and parents deal with Cyberbullying
There are many parental control soltutions to block websites and content, but most of these only address a small part of the problem. Such concerns as cyber-bullying, internet predators and inappropriate social networking are difficult or impossible to prevent with filtering products. Action Alerts unique recording and alert features allow parents to playback any internet session when they are notified of an event (such as the use of a key word or phrase) that they select.
Advice of experts used to develop Action Alert
The developers of Action Alert assembled law enforcement professionals, parenting experts, concerned parents, and even kids themselves to gain a clearer understanding of the technical and parenting challenges faced by today’s high-tech families.
This group concluded that parental involvement is the most effective method to keep kids safe online. They agreed that kids simply behave differently when their parents are over their shoulder and can help them recognize online dangers. While the parents interviewed agreed with this strategy, they repeatedly expressed the need for a simpler and more complete method to create the safe environment being advised. Action Alert allows parents to simulate the environment that would otherwise require the impracticality of constant supervision.
