AVG Family Safety Protects Children From Online Threats

Children nowadays may be tech-savvy, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t vulnerable online. AVG Technologies, the Czech company that provides antivirus and security software products for home and business users, has recently announced that it released a new powerful and easy to use tool that parents can use to protect their children online.

The tool I am talking about is called AVG Family Safety. It has been released as part of AVG Technologies’ ongoing commitment to developing secure, safe and easy to use consumer products. AVG Family Safety provides peace of mind to parents by blocking, monitoring, and controlling content from over 60 million websites (including over 80 different social networking sites) with flexible, easy-to-use templates and filters.

Parents can take advantage of the functionality AVG Family Safety has to offer and protect their children from questionable content and cyber-bullying.

"At AVG we are aware that many parents are concerned they might not have the necessary tools to effectively protect their children from online threats. Parents need to feel safe in the knowledge that their children understand and are protected from web-based dangers," said J.R. Smith, CEO, AVG Technologies. "With "AVG Family Safety", AVG is taking its expertise in security technology and expanding it to new areas of online protection for the modern family."

You can think of AVG Family Safety as your children’s virtual guardian. The children get to surf and enjoy the web, while the guardian keeps the dangers at bay. The nice thing is that AVG Family Safety can be customized so that it can protect children of different ages. AVG Family Safety’s adaptable profiles can be adjusted to provide different levels of protection to children of different ages; or they can be adjusted as a single child grows up.
