BUCHAREST, ROMANIA -- (Marketwire) -- 06/11/12 -- Bitdefender®, the award-winning provider of innovative antivirus solutions, has launched a public beta test of a novel parental control system aimed at increasing open communication between parents and kids.
Bitdefender Parental Control, open to public beta testing on June 11th, allows parents to protect their children from online dangers by simply checking up on their mobile phone or any other Internet-connected device. With GPS tracking, parents know where their children are so they can protect them from real-world threats.
The Facebook monitoring feature identifies kids' profiles, allowing parents to monitor their social accounts without necessarily being on their friends' list. Extensive reports outline their children's friends, comments, posts, photos, and their main interests.
"Parental Control Standalone is loaded with features that help parents manage the dangers their kids are exposed to in the online environment," said Mihaela Masdrag, Product Manager at Bitdefender. "Most importantly, Bitdefender's parental control software monitors instead of blocks online content, promoting honest communication between parents and kids."
To this end, children have to allow the social media app when they enter into their account, but parents are also alerted when children uninstall access. "Honest communication is key to keeping children safe online and Bitdefender Parental Control facilitates that conversation, while leveraging proven technology to monitor for dangers and inappropriate content," Masdrag said.
Bitdefender Parental Control Standalone also gives beta testers the opportunity to try the online, user-friendly interface, which can be accessed from any Internet-connected device.
Bitdefender Standalone Parental Control module is available for free beta testing at: http://www.bitdefender.com/media/html/parental-control/
