Do you know what your children are accessing on the Internet now?
Only the best of the Internet for your family
When installing NetProtection at your home, all communication with the Internet are filtered according to the rules you set for each device.
Unlike others parental controls, where you need to enter each website address you want to block, NetProtection keeps a constantly updated database with categories of sites that you might not want your child to access.
All devices, set by you, connected to the Internet will be controlled through the Control Panel in the cloud, where you can configure and monitor the controlled devices and view usage reports.
Limit the access to websites by categories
NetProtection allows control of the websites accessed on the Internet by categories, which are automatically updated by our systems.
When you forbid a category (pornography, for example), our servers automatically detect any new websites that fit this category and block access to its address.

Set times for Internet use
Social networks (like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) has become part of our everyday lives, but children and adolescents tend to spend more time than necessary on them.
Imposing limits of Internet usage, you can have the peace of mind to know that study time and/or bedtime will be respected.
Create multiple rules
Set specific rules for hours on any day of the week simply and directly using the Cloud Control Panel.
For example, the user can set the "Default Rule" to “blocked access” (without Internet access) and set "Rules for Time" allowing the device to access the Internet daily between the hours of 11:00h to 15:00h and 20:00h to 21:00h.
The Internet is becoming a part of people's lives at an earlier age. This exposure is inevitable and even necessary for our personal and professional activities.
However, it presents some risks and parents should be alert to be able to protect their children:
- Spending excessive time online: internet use should not affect other activities of children such as exercising, social skills in the real world, studies and getting the appropriate amount of sleep.
- Access to inappropriate or harmful content: a child, while browsing the Internet, can inadvertently click on links that lead to porn sites, violence or other inappropriate content.
- Contact pedophiles and other criminals: you never know who is on the other side. Criminals can pretend to be a child, a teacher or any other person who can gain the child's trust. From that contact, criminals can get videos and photos, blackmail parents, or may even arrange a meeting in the real world.
- Excessive information: can reveal lifestyle, where you live, places that you study and attend, who your friends and family are, as well as their appearance. This information can be used by criminals.
- Sexting: the increasingly common practice among young people to produce and share sexy photos with boyfriends or girlfriends can expose these photos to outsiders. And they may not realize that once a picture is sent, they'll never control it.
- Cyberbullying: bullying has always existed, but with the Internet, it gains a new dimension because of its reach.
