As a parent, you are bound to be anxious about your kids’ Internet usage. Is their Internet surfing safe and secured? Are they safe from cyber bullies? These questions tend to haunt you on a daily basis. With Qustodio by your side, you can put an end to all your worries. Qustodio is a notable parental control app to monitor your kids’ online activities at anytime in any place.
Once you have installed the app in your children’s iOS devices, you need to disable other browsers like Safari and Google Chrome to give Qustodio Safe Browser full access to your kids’ online activities. You can get started by creating an account, and within that account you can select suitable avatars for your kids to create individual accounts for each of them.
These days search engines don’t screen the content that can be harmful or inappropriate for kids when it displays the search results. So, kids are vulnerable to viewing unsafe sites and content. With Qustodio, you can customize a safe and secured search for your children, and also view your kids’ search queries and the websites they have accessed. Moreover, you can block specific websites or categories of websites which you feel are inappropriate for your kids. If your kids inadvertently reach a restricted site, Qustodio blocks that site and sends you an alert.
If you feel that your children spend more time online than required, you can fix time limits for all/specific Internet activities. You could even set different time schedules for Internet usage on weekdays and weekends. Qustodio is a multi-platform application, so you can get it installed on your PC, iPhone, iPad and Android devices. Irrespective of the device your kids use, with a single Qustodio account you can effectively monitor and manage their online activities.
Qustodio Safe Browser’s dashboard presents you with detailed and comprehensive reports of your kids’ Internet activities in the form of charts and graphs. All it takes is a few minutes to get the complete picture of your kids’ Internet usage. Wherever you are in the world, you just need an Internet enabled smartphone, tablet, laptop or PC to keep track of your kids’ online activities.
Qustodio is available in free and paid versions. You can install the free version in two devices and monitor two users for three days. The premium versions are available at $44.95 and $79.95. With the premium versions you get more devices and users with round-the-clock service for 365 days.
I got a chance to use Qustodio Safe Browser in both my iPad and Android mobile. In the Android version, you can monitor, manage and control your kids’ social networking activities and app usage, along with their web activities. If you are not happy about your kids spending a lot of time on a particular game or app, you can set individual time limits for their app usage.
After the stipulated time, the app gets locked. We, as parents, do our best to ensure that our children don’t get deceived or mislead by strangers on social networking sites. Personally, Qustodio Safe Browser made me feel secure, as I get to know my kids’ activities and friends on social networking sites. I would request the developers to incorporate the aforementioned features to the iPad version as well.
Indeed, Qustodio Safe Brower is a guardian angel for your kiddies while they are online, and it is a great tool with which you can monitor, manage, and control their online activities without intruding into their privacy.
