Are We Protecting Our Children From Offensive Contents On The Internet Such As Pornography?

Are We Protecting Our Children From Offensive Contents On The Internet Such As Pornography?Are we aware that many internet service providers (ISP) provide parental control software which includes content filters that can block offensive contents on our computers and tablets at home?

The Content filters are a key tool typically included in parental control software. They can help to reduce the chances of children coming across inappropriate content, such as pornographic and violent material.

Some filters allow parents to set different profiles for different children – so mums and dads can offer a more protective experience for younger children.

The big 4 Internet service providers, BT,SKY,VIRGIN MEDIA and TALK TALK provide it free of charge (as part of their package) and give new customers a prompt so that they have to make a decision as to whether they want to use it or not.

UK mobile operators also provide free parental control software. Some of this is set up by default, but if you are not sure then contact your mobile operator and ask them.
