Most of us think internet is amazing. For children and kids, internet can provide many beneficial resources and hours of fun. On the other hand, for any parent, internet dangers including internet sexual predators, explicit images, indecent websites and porn videos can be worrying. Internet child safety brings a new set of challenges. Protecting children's internet safety has become a more and more serious and important topic for concerned parents. We all agree that nothing can take the place of a well-informed parent but children's internet protection application will add a strong and additional layer of defense. SurveilStar is a children's internet protection solution which will help your kids stay away from all kinds of internet dangers and help your children grow up healthily.
Harmful online predators
Children could be physically harmed by online predators especially internet sexual predators. An online predator is an adult internet user who exploits vulnerable teens, usually for sexual or other abusive purposes. Online victimization of minors can include child grooming, requests to engage in sexual activities or discussions by an adult, unwanted exposure to sexual material (email with naked pictures, etc.), and online harassment, threats or other aggressive communications that are not sexual in nature but cause distress, fear or embarrassment.
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children funded a study by the Crimes Against Children Resource Center in 2006 of youth Internet users over a five year period. They found:
- An increase in encountering unwanted exposures to sexual material (from 25% to 34%)
- An increase in cases of online harassment (from 6% to 9%)
- A decrease in those receiving unwanted sexual solicitations (from 19% to 13%)
- 40% of all youth Internet users said online solicitors asked them for nude or sexually explicit photographs
- Only a minority of youth who had unwanted sexual solicitations, unwanted exposures to sexual material, or harassment said they were distressed by the incidents.
- One-third of the solicitations (31%) were aggressive, meaning the solicitors made, offline contact with youth.

Block any unexpected website and email addresses
Many websites include indecent words like sex, porn, pussy in the domain. You can block any website whose domain includes the word "sex" by blocking "*sex*", * stands for any letters or strings. You can even block any websites including .com, .net or other domains and then create another policy to allow the specified websites. The priority of allow is higher then block.

In the same way, you can set any email addresses which you allow your children to sent to or receive from. Websites and emails filtering are supposed to be the most important sides of children's internet protection.
Block application usage and games
Children may install some inappropriate applications, porn games, bloody games which will obviously do harm to children's mind and prevent children from setting up a correct world view and philosophy. SurveilStar will give you an application statistics and tell you what application your children spent on. You can easily find the application name and know what it is.
