Share Article

The Chicago-based company adds content filtering capabilities to enable parents to block specific websites and encourage safe Internet habits for their children.

WebCurfew, the most intuitive Internet parental control service, announced today the launch of WebSafeguards, a new comprehensive content filtering solution for parents. WebSafeguards allows parents to block websites based on pre-defined content categories to ensure their children remain safe online. WebSafeguards complements WebCurfew’s existing WebAccess and WebTimers parental control tools, its Internet on / off switch and automation solutions to control individual devices.

“WebCurfew provides a great solution for parents who want to take back control over their children’s online usage,” said Rod da Silva, founder and CEO of WebCurfew. “With WebSafeguards, we now address an important request from parents who worry about the content their ‘screenagers’ can access while surfing the web, as well as how much time they spend online. WebCurfew’s content filtering services ensure their children avoid dangerous or inappropriate websites while using the home Internet network.”

The WebCurfew platform connects directly to the home router and allows parents to see each device connected to the Internet. With the click of a button, parents can easily turn the Internet on or off to specific devices – without the need to install any software or have a background in technology.

WebSafeguards: Get Peace of Mind
As part of its comprehensive Internet parental control solution, WebCurfew offers WebSafeguards to block websites, and provides a list of more than 60 different categories. Using WebSafeguards, parents can easily block entire categories of web content – such as adult content – for the whole house. Parents can also specify white and black lists of websites to be allowed or blocked, ensuring a personalized approach to addressing each families’ specific needs and boundaries.

The platform will also come with three easy, pre-set WebSafeguards:

  •     Primary School Safeguards – Content appropriate for children ages 7 – 10
  •     Middle School Safeguards – Content appropriate for children ages 11 – 14
  •     High School Safeguards – Content appropriate for children ages 15 – 18

WebCurfew also gives parents the flexibility to automatically implement WebSafeguards during certain times of the day with its WebTimers tool. Parents can create their own policies such as “Homework – No Distractions,” which blocks children from social media, video sharing, gaming and other “time wasters” during a pre-defined time frame, such as 4pm to 7pm on school days. During these times, children can still access other Internet resources to conduct research or complete their homework assignments, but avoid temptations and distractions.

“WebSafeguards gives parents a much broader tool set to regain control of their home Internet and guarantee their children use the Internet responsibly,” said Alberto Moriondo, VP of Marketing and Business Development for WebCurfew. “With WebSafeguards and WebAccess, our cloud-based suite of Internet parental control solutions provides one of the most intuitive and comprehensive parental control offerings available today.”
