If your computer is connected to the Internet, it’s connected to some of the greatest theological works in history — and enough pornograph to destroy a society. Therefore, I think it’s important that any children accessible to a child have software that blocks dangerous websites: pornography, gambling, all sorts of things that children shouldn’t be exposed to.
Two of the best programs are now available for free or nominal cost, according to PC Magazine —
Net Nanny is one of the more comprehensive parental control tools available. It offers all of the expected parental control features as well as some useful and unusual ones. And during the month of June you can get a full-year Net Nanny subscription for free. All you have to do is visit the Net Nanny Facebook page and click “Like.”
If you’re interested, don’t waste any time. The giveaway nominally runs through the last minute of June 30, 2011, but Net Nanny is giving away a maximum of 2,000 copies. …
AVG is also running a promotion in June. While it isn’t a giveaway like Net Nanny’s offer, you can get AVG Family Safety for a 99-cent donation to Red Cross family aid efforts in Joplin. Whichever offer you choose, June is a great month to get free or low-cost access to advanced parental control software.
AVG Family Safety just won the PC Magazine Editor’s Choice designation as best in class, but Net Nanny has been an Editors Choice many times in the past. Both are excellent programs.
