In this article released as part of today’s Children’s Day Special, the day when all the news are children-related because today is the International Children’s Day, I would like to put the focus on security. You may know how to use a computer and surf the web safely, put your children do not. It is up to you to keep a close eye on them and ensure they’re safe and have a fun browsing experience.

With that in mind, I would like to remind you about ZoneAlarm SocialGuard, TrendMicro Online Guardian for Families, and AVG Family Safety.


ZoneAlarm Social Guard is a security tool that is meant to offer protection against online predators, cyberbullies, hacked accounts, malicious links, and other social threats on Facebook. With this tool you can monitor your child’s activity on Facebook and you can ensure that your little is protected from nasties like cyberbullying, age fraud, friend requests from strangers, hacked accounts, and offensive links.

ZoneAlarm SocialGuard is available for purchase for $1.99/month or $19.99/year. You can purchase it from the ZoneAlarm website here.

Trend Micro Online Guardian for Families is also a security tool that can protect against cyberbullying and online predators and can help parents closely monitor a child’s internet activity. The app lets parents monitor a child’s activity on sites like Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and YouTube, can monitor a child’s browsing habits, can restrict the amount of time a child can spend online, can filter out adult content, and can stop the child sharing sensitive of personal information.
