A PTPA Winner (that's Parent Tested, Parent Approved), ESET Smart Security 6 offers a full suite of tools for keeping your devices safe. While Rock Father HQ is run on several machines, ESET Smart Security 6 is an important feature of my laptop (for reasons I'll address in a future post), but for families the starting point is PARENTAL CONTROLS and ANTI-PHISHING Measures.
ESET PARENTAL CONTROLS: You want to know what your kids are doing online? Done. ESET can create a log of questionable sites that your kids are visiting so that YOU can have a proper talk with them. Password Protection, custom web filtering, and more are all available right out-of-the-box.
ANTI-PHISHING: We've all seen it, and many of us have already fallen victim... the spoof page or social scam that lures you in and before you know it YOU appear to be sending out all kinds of undesirable materials via email and status updates. Last Fall, one of my neighbors got the ol' Facebook phishing thing going on... on a shared laptop that his tween/teen daughters use. Within a few hours of one mistake, the entire family was dishing out spam. Or at least it looked like it was them. ESET's Anti-Phising Measures can help ensure that sensitive information like usernames and passwords don't fall into sinister hands.
While these are just two important details, ESET offers full Cybersecurity Training, and their Top Five Tips for Keeping Children Safe Online. Couple this training with the award-winning Anti-virus and Firewall functions, and ESET is a great suite at a reasonable price... and for a limited-time, my readers can save 15% Off using code PTPA.
