Having kids in this digital age comes with a lot of worries for us parents. There is so much junk when it comes to internet browsing, texting, and social media that it can be overwhelming trying to keep your kiddos safe. There have been times when I just wanted to banish all technology from my kids' lives just so that I could ensure that they would never stumble upon porn or any of the other awful things that the internet has to offer. But lets face it, that's not productive or realistic. Thankfully I stumbled upon the great family-friendly features available through Norton Security Premium.
When I think Norton, I think protection against viruses on my home computer, which is great, but this product does SO much more! With Premium, you not only get their full protection package, you also get their family safety protection as well. Now that I have it on my computer and have figured out everything it can do (especially with SMARTPHONES), I want to share it with EVERYONE!
Here's WHY every family needs to have this in their home:
-It goes way beyond computer protection. You can protect ALL of your devices with a single solution. That's right, this will protect your PC's, tablets, and phones (Android and iOS). And one purchase covers 10 devices–which many homes have these days!
-You can make the internet safe for your kids to explore without limiting their freedom. Your children can explore the Web safely with tools that block unsuitable websites, while keeping you in the know about which sites they’re visiting. I especially love that it protects against pornography!
At home with the kids? Instantly access any of these printable activity bundles to keep them learning!
You can even see which words and phrases your kids are searching for to gain insights into their interests and protect them from inappropriate content.
-You can customize the protection for each individual child.
-You can protect your kids’ private information and online reputations.
-You can set time limits. As the mom of a toddler, this one is huge for me!
-You can monitor your kid’s location on Android and iOS devices. With this feature you can keep track of your kid’s current location and get historical data on which places they have visited previously.
-You can monitor their text messages.
Only interested in Family Safety? With Norton Family Premier, you can get all of these amazing features a la carte
Overall, I think this is an amazing product with more features and customization options than I ever would have expected. YOU HAVE TO HAVE A PLAN SET UP these days because the internet is EVERYWHERE. Gone are the days when you can just “hope” your kids don't stumble upon pornography or worse–become victim of an adult predator or bully. If you haven't read the post about 3 Things Every Parent Needs to Know About Pokemon Go, that alone should give you plenty of reason to set up some protection on your devices. This app has only been on the market for a couple of weeks and there have already been deaths, as well as robberies, assaults and injuries.
This is one of the best investments you can have for your family. Period. It gives me great comfort to know that my kids will be safe when they are on the computer or on the phone. If you have kids, I wouldn't even question whether you need this.
