I was contacted by Internet Safety to review their home package and I have not for the life of me had time to review it. I’ve looked over the booklet and what it does so I can tell you what I learned about it. Internet Safety Created a program called Safe Eyes that you can install on your program or certain smart phones like the iPhone. Doing this enables you the parent to keep tabs on what your children are doing on the internet. My husband and I have nightmares about what our children are going to be seeing when they are in middle school. So many kids get cell phones now and so many parents don’t take the necessary steps to lock down their children’s belonging’s.
Thanks to Safe Eyes you can

About Safe Eyes
Safe Eyes™ is an award-winning parental control software from InternetSafety.com. The new Safe Eyes 3.0 for Mac is currently available for download at www.internetsafety.com.
Safe Eyes is the only program of its kind that can be used in mixed Mac/PC households, with a single annual subscription covering up to three Mac and/or PC computers. The software provides broader controls than those available from any other filtering product or the Mac OS itself, including the ability to define which websites will be blocked by category, URL and keyword; receive instant alerts about inappropriate online behavior by email, text message or phone call; and remotely change program settings or view reports from any Internet-enabled computer.
“More and more parents are recognizing the need to manage how their children use the Internet, but the choices are limited for Mac users and particularly those who have both Macs and PCs in the house,” said InternetSafety.com CTO Aaron Kenny. “Our new Mac edition offers more robust controls than any other Mac solution and continues to be the only parental control software that combines Mac and PC support. That’s important because over one-third of our Mac customers use Safe Eyes on both platforms.”
Established in 1999, InternetSafety.com specializes in providing Internet safety solutions. Its flagship software, Safe Eyes, is the two-time recipient of the PC Magazine Editors’ Choice Award and was rated as the #1 parental control solution by America’s leading consumer advocacy publication. Safe Eyes and EtherShield – the suite of Internet filtering solutions developed by InternetSafety.com – are providing online protection for PCs and Macs in homes, businesses and schools across more than 125 countries.
