BSI Kitemark for Child Safety Online

Netintelligence has been awarded the first ever BSI kitemark for child safety online.  The award is for an internet filtering product that helps parents decide what their children can see online.  For software to meet the standard it must be be easy to install, easy to use and effective in blocking inappropriate online content such as pornography, violence and racism.

You can get a 30 day free trial at their website.  The full product costs £50 a year.

Is it any good?

Personally I think if you need to have software to time bar internet access for your 10-year-old then the Internet is the least of your problems, but maybe I am a bit Victorian in my outlook.  More pragmatically you could also try Google’s safe search functionality.

I’ll download the software and let you know.
