Similar to monitoring software, parental control software refers to "all-in-one" monitoring that enables parents to control, restrict and monitor anyone who uses the computer.
Internet filtering and parental control software programs give parents the ability to control and monitor their child's use of the Internet no matter where they are: in the neighboring room, at work, on vacation, it is designed to enable parents to protect children "from the dangers of the Internet." Truth is, this industry is very fragmented, meaning there is no one leader and no one solution.
