About Technology - Parental Controls 

What are parental controls?

  • Parental control tools help parents monitor and limit what their children do online.
  • There are many tools available and they all offer different functions, with some even allowing parents to limit the time children spend on specific websites or games.
  • No tool is 100% effective at blocking access to inappropriate content. They are a good tool to encourage communication with children about their online activities.
  • Currently there are more effective tools for use with PCs and Macs than with mobile, tablet devices and game consoles. Additional parental supervision is required with these.

What do parental controls do?

  • Every parental control tool is different.
  • Most can block children from accessing specific websites, protocols or applications.
  • Most can filter different kinds of content, like sexual content.
  • Most allow parents to monitor use with reports on sites accessed, the length of time and frequency of access.
  • Some can be used to set time limits, blocking access after a set time—handy if you are not home and want to limit the time your child spends on a game or social media.
  • Most allow parents to change the tool settings to reflect each child’s age and skills.

Do parental controls block all bad stuff?

  • No single parental control tool is 100% effective at blocking all inappropriate content—but they can reduce the likelihood of accidental discovery.
  • Parental control tools tend to be better at blocking ‘adult’ or sexual content than other types of harmful content, such as content that may promote self-harm, eating disorders, violence, drugs, gambling, racism and terrorism.
  • Parental control tools have difficulty filtering content within social media sites and messaging services, including video messaging services like Skype.
  • Parents need to talk to their children about the social media sites they are using, who they communicate with and what they are accessing.

What about game consoles, mobiles and tablets?

  • Parental control tools are currently less effective with game consoles, mobiles and tablets. Additional parental supervision is required.
  • Most parental controls do not filter internet access from game consoles. There are very few developed specifically for particular game consoles.
  • Most tools for mobiles and tablets involve using a specific internet browser to block content. —If children use a different internet browser they bypass the parental control tool.
  • Apps often bypass any parental control tools.

What is the best parental control tool?  

New parental control tools are emerging every couple of months. Look for user reviews to find the one that is best for you.
Look for a tool that users report:

  • Is easy for parents to install and use.
  • Blocks content and websites well.
  • Offers good reports on which websites have been accessed.
  • Is automatically updated (to ensure new websites and content are blocked).
  • Can’t be easily bypassed by savvy teens.
  • Can be used remotely (can be handy if your child is doing a school project and the tool is over blocking content, or if your child is home alone and you want to know which websites they are visiting).

How do I find the best parental control tool for me?

  • Look at recent reviews on trusted consumer review sites and technology review sites, such as Toptenreviews, Topconsumerreviews, PC Magazine, Laptop magazine.
  • Search for reviews on Parental control tools, content filters, internet filters.
  • A recent study commissioned by the European Commission provides a ranking of parental control tools tested, including free tools. Access the review at

Do parental control tools keep computers and data secure?

No. Parental controls are not created for the purpose of software or hardware security.

E-security tools need to be installed to keep information and computers safe, including:

  • Firewalls to block access by unauthorised systems.
  • Anti-virus to block programs that seek to steal or destroy data.
  • These tools must be automatically updated as new viruses are released every day.
