Parental Control Bar

Thursday, March 20th, 2008 by | Filed Under: Security Help

Parental Control Bar

Today, I have a security tip and a free download all packed in to one! I’m sure there are many of you parents and grandparents out there who are concerned about the possibility of your children and grandchildren accessing Web sites that are not intended for them. Well, lucky for all of you, I have a solution! I was able to find a program called Parental Control Bar that will help keep your children safe while they’re online, which will also give you peace of mind when you’re away from the computer!

Installing the Parental Control Bar is simple! Just go to this Web site and click on the green Download button. Run the program and it will walk you through the installation. After the program is installed, you will see that the toolbar has a button to switch from Parent mode to Child mode. It’s as simple as that!

Now, if you want to customize the bar to allow certain site categories or specific Web sites, just click on the Change Parental Settings button. You can then customize it any way you want! For example, if your child comes across a Web site that is blocked and you want to unblock it, simply type in your parental password and it will be added to the Allowed Sites list. Isn’t that easy? I sure thought so!

Note: This toolbar works with Windows 98, ME, 2000 and XP. It is also compatible with these Web browsers: Internet Explorer, Firefox and Safari.

Enjoy and until next week, stay safe out there, my friends!
