Earlier today we were reporting that Trend Micro, company that specializes in providing network antivirus and internet content security software, released Trend Micro Online Guardian for Families, a parental control tool that allows you to keep an eye on what up to 5 children do online. The application presents you with a detailed report on what the children did, filters out adult content, sets internet usage time limits, and prevents the children from sharing sensitive information.

If you are thinking something along the lines “I trust my kid and I don’t need such a parental control tool”, then here are some statistics to put things in perspective and show you that you do need to keep an eye on what your children do online:


- 68% of teens accepted friend requests from people they don’t know.
- 31% of teens shared content on social networking sites, content they would not want their teachers or family to see.
- 68% of teen girls said they had a negative experience with social networks.

Those percentages were presented as part of the press release announcing the availability of Trend Micro Online Guardian for Families.

“There are times in kids' development when a little up-front Internet monitoring can be helpful to kids as well as the parents. One of those times is when kids are heading into middle school and engaging in social networking, another is when a child seems extra vulnerable,” said Anne Collier, co-director of ConnectSafely.org. “Then it's great when parents use tech tools for talking points in the kind of calm, ongoing family discussion that really protects kids online and offline.”

Why do you need to get Trend Micro Online Guardian for Families? Because it is a dangerous online world out there and you need tools to keep up with your children’s internet and social networking activities, tools to keep your children safe online, tools to prevent your children from accessing inappropriate sites and sensitive information. All these tools are offered by Trend Micro Online Guardian for Families.
