Their solution will form a part of Vista’s powerful set of parental control options that will help manage children’s computer use and help protect them when online. It’s part of Microsoft’s Family Safe Computing Initiative.
The Safe Eyes software includes instant messaging monitoring and logging, usage time limits, and content blocking. It will complement the Family Settings features available on the Premium and Ultimate versions of Vista.
“Our two companies share a strong commitment to ensuring that children derive all the benefits of using computers and the Internet — with none of the potential pitfalls, such as chatting with strangers online,” added Shane Kenny, co-founder and president of SafeBrowse. “We encourage all families to make Internet safety their #1 resolution for the New Year!”
