Website content ratings
Our web content rating system analyzes websites in real time and gives every website visited an age-based rating, like T for Teen and M for Mature. This rating system flags websites that may be of concern to you and eliminates the guesswork.
Parental controls and age-based filtering
Block content based on your kids’ ages. After all, your 6-year-old and your 16-year-old are at different maturity levels. You’ve given them different bedtimes, and you should be able to monitor and control their web browsing differently too.
