1. By Blocking unwanted Websites.
Objectionable websites can be blocked. Besides the usual categories of pornography, drugs, and the like, there are 35 different categories to choose from and you can customize your own.
2. Monitoring Instant Messaging
Choose to block Instant Messages (IM’s) like MSN, Skype, etc altogether or just use it to monitor conversations. Safe Eyes will record and store IM conversations either on your hard drive or on their remote server.
3. By Creating Time Limits on the Internet
Stop watching the clock or nagging. Set the amount of time spent online per day (and during which hours). When a user’s time is up, they are blocked from any further internet activity. You can even specify certain times of the day when internet access is restricted.
4. Email Blocking
For maximum control, set up an "approved contacts" list and you'll ensure that emails are only sent to or received from those on your list. Also Safe Eyes can be used to block attempts to open multiple email accounts through different servers. At a minimum, it logs addresses of all emails sent and received.
5. Monitoring Social Networking Sites (Facebook, Bebo etc)
Afraid of your kids giving out personal info? Set up a list of any information you don’t want shared (name of your town, address, their school, phone number, etc) and Safe Eyes will record any occurrence of these keywords being used. Also records any use of profanity or explicit terms.
6. Setting Up Usage Reports
At any time you can view, web sites visited, web sites they tried to visit but couldn’t, email sent or received, and more.
7. Receive Instant Alerts
If you decide to receive alerts regarding inappropriate activity, you choose how you want to receive them and when. Alerts can be sent to any email address. You also can set up certain times of day when alerts are accepted or blocked.
