How to Control What Children See on the Internet

by Roveen
Children on internet

The internet has become so ubiquitous that it is no longer possible, or even advisable, for parents to try and shield them from the virtual world. Technology is quickly becoming a necessity in our lives, and thus, if you are a parent, you will no longer be able to stop your children from accessing it.

Thus, rather than stop them from completely accessing the internet, how about you control what they access? Below are some parental control software to help you limit what your child sees on the web.

Norton Family

The first pick for us in parental control is Norton Family. This unique parental control software actually encourages parents to communicate with their children through the House Rules and Request Access features. It is an affordable software which you can use on an unlimited number of devices and lets you monitor your children’s online activity from a mobile app. It is affordable, easy to set up, and has multiple geofencing tools.


The second pick is Mobicip. Now this is not a general parental control software but rather one that is best for social media monitoring. The program allows parents to keep up with their child’s location, manage their screen time and monitor what YouTube videos they are watching. It also watches who your child is interacting with on certain social media apps, though this feature is available on Premium.

Net Nanny

Net Nanny is a robust parental control tool that offers features such as location tracking, screen time management, and social media and YouTube monitoring. This app offers some social media protection when monitoring what they do on platforms like Facebook, TikTok, Tumblr, and Instagram, among others.  You can also block app access and filter which websites the child can’t and can’t access.


Qustodio has several useful features for any concerned parent. You can block access to certain apps, filter web content and view your child’s activity from anywhere through their easy-to-use online dashboard on their mobile app. The app is well designed to include comprehensive time limits, blocking apps on both desktops and mobile platforms, and support on different platforms.

As you can see, there is no reason to stop your child from accessing the internet just as long as you have one of these installed on the PC or mobile device that they use.
