Product - PG Key
Price - $49.99
"PG Key was created and endorsed by a team that includes internet security specialists, law enforcement, educators, parenting experts and family psychologists to give you the first complete internet safety solution. PG Key gives you everything you need to keep your children and teens safe online and be alerted and informed when dangers do come up – all with one simple, plug in device."
Featured in Forbes, Women's World, MSNBC, and CNN.
There are some great features with this product.
Time Lock - This controls whether or not the computer can be used.
Safe Search - This is an essential feature. When your child enters a "keyword" to look up, your computer is protected from harmful results or images. Safe Search blocks inappropriate results.
Alerts - Parents are sent an email message when your child doesn't follow the computer rules. This will help you keep them protected and on-task.
Encryptor - If your child tries to disable PG Key or look for information online, this will be recorded for the parent to check up on later.
Session Recorder - "Records up to 60 hours of computer activity." You, as the parent, can go back and view exactly what your child did on the computer.
This is such a great idea! I wish I had something like this when my older girls were younger! At this point, we do not need PG Key. We have two computers in the house- 1. Mine (which is in the main living area and no one is allowed to use. If they do, it is rare, and I am right beside them.) 2. The children's computer. This is not connected to the internet whatsoever.
