Norton Safety Minder

Norton Online Family is a paternal control service from Symantec that can be used to monitor and control the online activities of your children (or family members) such as where they visit, who they talk to, and what they're doing while they're online. You can set and manage time limits, permitted sites, online chat and social networking preferences for each family member.

It uses a desktop application called Norton Safety Minder for monitoring the activities of each child and is available free download for Windows and Mac. Currently the service in beta stage and requires an online Norton Account to use. The registration is free (until beta).

Unlike other parental control solutions, this online service alert you by email or text messages when your child reached their time limits, visited a blocked website or tried to add an unknown stranger for chatting.

This helps you to take necessary measures including discussion with them about their online activities and better understanding about their intent with visiting specific sites or wanting to spend more time online. Moreover, the Norton Online Family Activity page provides real-time reports on the Internet activities of your children.
