CyberPatrol is designed to be a user-friendly method of preventing your children gaining access to undesirable material, either on your PC or online.
Access to websites and newsgroups can be blocked, chat room activity controlled, email contents masked and internet access restricted to certain times of the day.
Working from lists - CyberNOT and CyberYES - Cyber Patrol can be used to allow access to a specified list of websites only, or simply to block undesirable sites.
Add a facility letting you block websites containing specific words and you have in-depth protection.
In-depth it is, but comprehensive it isn't. There will always be a huge number of sites not blocked despite daily updates to the Cyber lists. However, with the majority of well-known sites blocked and a facility to add your own to the lists, it should do well enough.
Profiles can be created for different people, so that older children can have fewer constraints than younger children.
Password protection prevents children fiddling with the setting or removing the software.
New in version 7 is the ability to add customisable profiles for each individual user of a PC.
