PARENTAL CONTROL

Contrôle parental

Parental control allows, via software that filters the web, the blocking of access to inappropriate sites for children. This protection results in content filtering by subject (violence, pornography, racism, gambling, drugs, etc.) and the restriction of potentially dangerous actions (chat, disclosure of personal data, misuse of the Internet).

4 types of filtering exist: white list filtering (or closed list), black list filtering, personalised list filtering and real time filtering (also known as filtering by semantic analysis).

Continuous learning

Today, more than 46% households have a Smartphone and 7.2% have a touch tablet(1). At home and outside, families are increasingly connected, with different needs and uses according to their age. And like any other communication tool, Internet use can be learned.

Children are becoming more and more independent users and adopt connected behaviours at a young age: they chat with their school friends, write a blog, communicate via a Facebook account or participate in discussions in gaming or fan-based communities.

Children do not have the necessary maturity, or the capacity to understand the many risks of the Internet.

But with the omnipresent commercials, violence in films and online games and the growing presence of shocking content on the Internet (racist or homophobic slurs, pornography), children do not have the maturity to deal with what they face, or the ability to understand the many risks of the Internet.

And this dangerous, illegal content is everywhere on the Internet. Without monitoring by parents, children can access most of these sites in a few clicks via any computer, smart phone or tablet available to them.

How can a website be dangerous?

In a global way, a site is considered dangerous when it promotes violence or racial hatred through its content (text, images, videos) or encourages visitors to adopt behaviours dangerous to themselves or others.

For example, sites for girls encouraging anorexia or bullemia, are categorised as dangerous sites.

Others may have illegal content (child pornography in particular). These are strictly prohibited and must be reported on the website of the organisation INHOPE.

INHOPE

This type of content is particularly dangerous for children. They do not have the perspective necessary to understand the full scope of the message conveyed.

Install a parental filter to secure browsing

In order for children to benefit from only the best of the Internet, certain barriers can be set, giving parents the possibility to manage the browsing of their children without giving them the impression of restricting their usage.

This is exactly what parental filtering allows you to do, with solutions for controlling the display of content, customisable and adaptable by age.

Further settings allow parents to put in place a filter blocking chats or social networks. Finally, to combat cyber-dependence, internet access schedules can be defined.
