I was recently given the opportunity to review the great software from InternetSafety.com called Safe Eyes. I am greatly impressed with this program! I think it is great that with one CD, I can protect up to 3 computers in my home! The software features time limits, program blocking, usage reporting, web blocking, key word blocking, instant messaging recording/blocking, peer-to-peer file sharing and more! My oldest is nearing the pre-teen years, and I am happy to know about this software to make our computers a bit more safe, and this will increase accountability in the home. I really like that I can have a report on what is viewed online at any time. Also, I can limit how much computer time is used by setting a time limit. I know that the world web has so much garbage on it, so I am happy to know that there are programs like Safe Eyes to help us rest assured that we are making web browsing, instant messaging, and e-mails a bit more family-friendly. Safe Eyes is the only program of its kind that can be used in mixed Mac/PC homes, with a single annual subscription. I think that at the price of $49.95 for a year subscription, it is worth the piece of mind to make the web a more kid-friendly, and family-friendly experience. Safe Eyes received the Parents' Choice Award for 2008 from the Parents' Choice Foundation. The award is the latest in a series of honors for the parental monitoring software, including two consecutive Editors' Choice awards from PC Magazine. I give Safe Eyes two thumbs up!
