Farmingdale, NY (PressExposure) March 13, 2012 -- KidsWatch proudly announces that the KidsWatch Time Management Version 6.5 software was recently selected as the Top Ten Reviews' Best Parental Control Software for 2012. KidsWatch has won this award every year since 2006, making this the sixth consecutive award winning year for the parental controls provider. The software has also been endorsed by iParenting.com and is a current recipient of the iParenting Media Award as well.
The Top Ten Reviews wrote, "Since computer use is practically a school requirement these days, efficient time and access control like KidsWatch is mandatory to keep kids on task and out of trouble. KidsWatch Time Management is competent, easy to use and an effective parental stress reducer. You can provide access to the PC and to the internet that is appropriate to the age of your child. And you can receive reports on which sites children visit and what they say in chat rooms. We find KidsWatch Time Management to be best in class."
KidsWatch puts power back into the hands of the parents to determine the quality and content of the Internet their children see. The software provides a large selection of optional features, allowing parents to restrict websites and programs by category or individual web site, block searches on adult words or phrases, view complete chat dialogues on social networking sites, block downloads, and set time limits on programs to keep kids active and prevent computer overuse. Installing KidsWatch parental control software is equivalent to customizing the Internet, by child, the way parents want their kids to experience and use it.
Parents can opt-in to receive immediate e-mail alerts when children use inappropriate keywords in a chat conversation. Specific words can be added to the search to personalize the monitoring process. Child activity reports allow parents to monitor beyond the internet browser history and keep track of all programs a child uses while signed into the computer.
KidsWatch software protects against threats inside and outside of the home, providing alerts to locate known sexual predators. Spyware and attempts at identity theft are spotted and stopped before the virus has a chance to penetrate into the computer hardware and cause permanent damage.
KidsWatch is fool proof, and genius proof. The Top Ten Reviews explained in the award summary the technology is "well aware of technically savvy kids. To prevent little geniuses from tampering with your settings, the product lets you block access to the Control Panel tools such as Add and Remove Programs or the Taskbar and Start Menu options. You can also place the Command Prompt off limits. And you can block access to the Run command. You can even block a child from loading a disk that might have software that changes settings on the computer."
KidsWatch plans to keep its promise to protect children from the dangers of unrestricted internet access with continued research and innovation, empowering families to stay one step ahead of online predators.
