ESET Parental Control
Comprehensive internet security for your children
Our child-friendly app to help you keep your kids safe online – includes child locator.
ESET Parental Control for Android protects children who are using smartphones and tablets, and does so in a child-friendly way. It shields them from inappropriate or offensive online content by completely blocking access to select website categories. A more liberal mode makes it possible to just monitor the child’s website visits, or following a request, to unblock an app or website that was previously banned. In addition, a useful tool with kids − parents can keep control over the length of time spent using apps or gaming, or block inappropriate apps altogether based on the child’s maturity level. In an emergency, a parent can locate the child based on his/her device that’s connected to the Internet.
