parental control software

A special browser or filtering program designed to reject websites not suited for children. Such programs may screen pages by word content, site rating or by URL, using an updated database of objectionable sites, or any combination of these techniques. Parental control software is also built into Windows and Mac computers, as well as smartphones and tablets. However, third-party apps are also available that can offer more flexibility. See PICS, ICRA and Internet filtering.
