McAfee Family Protection

Our little ones LOVE to be on the computer so we were thrilled when we were given the opportunity to review the McAfee Family Protection Program. It a challenge for us to make sure our kids are safe when they use the Internet and talking to them about real-life dangers from online predators, cyber-bullying or accidentally visiting a bad site. McAfee Family Protection software gives us a peace of mind that our kids are safe online. Through separate accounts, we set up a tailored filter for each of our kids to prevent them from accidentally visiting inappropriate sites.

This software is loaded with tons of great features including:

Protect your children from objectionable Websites -
Blocks up to 35 categories of objectionable websites and filters inappropriate content
Allow your children to view appropriate YouTube Videos -
By using key word filtering technology, objectionable content will be prohibited, yet permitting watching acceptable videos
Provide times your children can go online -
Allows you to manage the amount of time your children use the internet
Let your family enjoy instant messaging -
Monitors and records instant message conversations to inform you of improper dialogue or conversations with strangers
Allow your children to freely communicate with their friends -
Blocks unknown email addresses so children cannot communicate with strangers
Enjoy the benefits of social networking -

Make sure your family’s personal information remains safe -
Prevents sharing of confidential information and keeps your PC safe from security threats that are commonly found in peer-to-peer file sharing

We highly recommend this great protection program!

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of McAfee and received a sample to facilitate my candid review. In addition, McAfee sent me a blanket and care package to thank me for taking the time to participate.
