Review: K9 Web Protection – Keeping Kids Safe on the Internet

web protection softwareI have three kids and of course, the internet at my home.  Between trips to sports and scouts, I am not always there to monitor web use in the house.  So I let the dog do it when I’m not around – that is, I leave K9 Web Protection in charge. 

K9 Web protection is free software that regulates all aspects of your child’s internet browsing.  When you download the software you create your own user name and password.  After installing K9, you open it and choose exactly what your child can do on the internet. 

There are many helpful settings in this program to help parents keep their children safe online.  You can block out times the kids can’t access the internet, which I find to be an excellent tool to stop late night web surfing.  

You can create levels of protection, from high to moderate and low.  Furthermore you can block or allow access to individual sites.  Parents can allow chatting, block it and so forth.  You can also review a list of every website your child has visited, including the tim

I’ve used K9 Web protection for a year and my children hate it.  That is how I know it works.  And the best part?  This program is legit – no spam or ads – just an excellent software that does exactly what it advertises – protecting children from dangerous internet surfing!

    I use this too and it works great. I like seeing the list of all the sites my daughter went to. I have her on medium and it blocks the bad stuff, but I like to see what she is thinking as she is on the web. So far she’s been good LOL!

    My niece had been addicted to the Internet. Hope this software could help. Maybe she need something or some special advices to make her understand life is not just about surfing.

    what a nifty software you got there… i can’t believe i’ve never thought about installing something like this before… you are right, we cannot monitor what the kids browse on the web 24/7, and this very much solves the problem of kids stumbling into sites we wouldn’t approve of…

    Without children myself I can’t begin to think what a worry this could be. I would rather my children get frustrated by the limits then let them have free rein on the internet. Better to be safe in my opinion!

    Instead of buying that software, I’ll just blocked the web sites that I don’t like using the Content Advisor. You don’t really need to spend dollars for a software that works like some of the Windows feature.

    .” Isn’t the software available for free? It means that there is no need to spend much dollars. But, the idea of using Content Advisor is recommended too. thank you.
