Child Safety

The Internet At Home: Protecting Your Children

When we first send our children off to school it’s big step not only for them but also for us as a parent. They have spent nearly all their by our side and we have always been their to keep them safe. However, when they leave for school we are trusting that the outside world will continue to have your childs best interests in mind. It’s a tough moment but a neccesary one for any parent.

We worry a lot about the outside world. Some of it valid, but then the rest is somewhat over the top.

Where we often let our guard down is when our children come home. We so often assume that as soon as they reach our front door, they are out of harms way. For the most part, this is true, but there is a forgotten danger that we are exposed to nearly every single day.

The Internet.

Common Customer Questions:

This is a common concern of many parents today.

The simple answer — Yes. The internet is safe.

But the long answer is a little more complicated.

The internet is truly a vast and wonderful place that has the potential to do a great many things. It provides practical education to those would never have access before, it allows people to create thriving businesses from their own homes, and even keeps people connected even when they are thousands of miles apart.

However, in the online world, having such a vast unlimited space that thrives on anonymity, can have its drawbacks. There are dangerous parts of the internet; not only for children but even for adults. For this reason, we first need to educate ourselves on safe internet use and then find ways to keep our children safe.

So if you’re worried about your children’s safety while they are browsing online and you are concerned about the people they are speaking to — You are not alone. Many parents are worried about the exact same things, and many aren’t sure where to turn for help.

It seems like just yesterday you were lucky enough to have dial-up internet and could send emails to your cousin across the country. Today nearly every kid and their grandma has a smartphone in their pocket; with instant access to thousands upon thousands of websites at their fingertips. Ironically your kids are mostly just spending their time on Snapchat and Instagram.

But when they aren’t adding doggy noses to their faces or double-tapping Kim K’s latest photo, they are on the brink of reaching harmful and dangerous areas of the internet. 

As mentioned previously, the internet does a lot of good, but it also has its dangerous elements. To the uneducated, it feels as though there is little to worry about. In a perfect world, that would be the case.

Unfortunately, there are criminals who like using the internet as their weapon. By creating malicious websites and emails filled with spam, they are capable of instantly gaining access to your personal information and use that as they like.

There are also websites that contain certain types of inappropriate content that are not suitable for children or teenagers.

Between these two online threats and concerns, there is a lot to look out for. But the most crucial step in keeping yourself and your children safe while using the internet is education. Teaching them about these threats and ways to avoid them is the best possible step you can make towards staying safe.

Unfortunately, your browser’s “Safe Search” option isn’t so safe. It’s very limited and only works when searching directly through that one search engine.

Kids today are exceedingly tech-savvy. Far more than many of their parents. If they want to search for something, a “Safe Search” is not going to stop them.

Netsentron is the answer to this problem and can keep both you and your children happy while they safely search the web.

Once, Netsentron was only available for business, school or institutional, as schools across North America have been using Netsentron to stop kids from seeing bad websites for ten years. After many calls from parents wanting internet security in their homes as well, we finally made an easy at-home solution for your family. You as a parent can have the enterprise-level protection that those schools, businesses and institutions have been able to take advantage of at an extremely affordable rate.
