Block Snapchat, Instagram, and More with Netsanity’s New Apple App
Netsanity, the popular service that gives parents the opportunity to put together a safe online environment for their children, has introduced that they have launched an iOS edition on the Apple App Store. In addition, the iOS version of the app provides features for content filtering, safe search and as well as the ability to block apps and games on iOS and Samsung devices.
“Having a child or teen encounter troubling or inappropriate content online, or worse, make contact with a bad person through a mobile device, is one of a parent’s great fears,” said Carl Petrovsky, CEO of Netsanity. “The challenge has been to provide appropriate child controls that are easy to manage.
If controls are overly complex to deal with, parents inevitably let them slip and expose their kids to risk. We solve this problem with an easy to use and intuitive new app interface.”
The Netsanity Apple app lets parents control their accounts from their iPhone or iPad, rather than requiring a login from a browser. Furthermore, parents of children can check their kids accounts and access the most popular features. These features include Appblocker, Catblocker, Timeout, Safesearch, and device restrictions. More features will become available in the app with each update.
The app’s “Timeout” function gives parents the opportunity to give their child a mobile “timeout,” remotely. Safesearch protects children by filtering search results to show only appropriate content, images, and videos.
In addition, the Appblocker feature can block over 50 apps, such as Snapchat, Instagram, and games with a single click. Catblocker filters over 40 content categories including such as hate speech, porn, social media, and advertisements.
Parents interested in trialing the Netsanity service can begin a 14-day free trial on their site. In addition, the iOS app is available for free on the App Store and is fully functional throughout the free trial.
Netsanity, a US-Based company, was founded in 2013 to address the growing concern of content filtering for mobile devices. As mobile devices have grown to variety of billions around the globe, parents needed better solutions to protect their children from dangerous apps, websites, and social predators. Initially launched with Apple devices in 2014, Netsanity added support for Samsung in 2016.
