You don’t have to go far these days to hear horror stories involving the internet. The news has a steady stream of identity theft stories, of on-line scams and of children racking up hundreds if not thousands of pounds worth of bills through simply not understanding what they were doing.
Add to that the better-known problems of inappropriate sites containing adult content or gambling and the internet can begin to look like a place no right-thinking person would venture, let alone allow their children unfettered access.
Headlines are just that, headlines – click-bait in print – and reality is often different, however there are real risks out there and some ISPs (Internet Service Providers) do attempt to mitigate them for you. What if you want to take a more active approach to controlling the darker reaches of the ‘net to protect your family?
There are a myriad of options out there, some are expensive, some are a bit clunky and others look like they need CheckPoint certification just to turn on. Fortunately, there are a number of simple but effective choices you can make, MiMo-net’s Family Filter falls into the latter category.
