July 20, 2007 - PRLog -- A group of clinical psychologists has developed ‘Responsible Surfing’ - an easy-to-use computer program that is designed to control some of the most dangerous aspects of Internet surfing for both children and adults.

Like most website blocking software ( ), the Responsible Surfing program allows parents to block content from their home computers that may harm children. Access to websites that contain pornography, chat rooms and online gaming can all be controlled through an easy-to-use interface. Parents can monitor keystrokes, record screen shots and decide when and what kind of movies children can watch.

Studies have shown just how easy it is for predators to contact children online, especially as over half of people in chat rooms lie about their age and identity. The unfortunate reality of Internet child predators and the lack of online privacy make the need to protect children from the dangers of the Internet a growing necessity. The main goal of the Responsible Surfing software is to give parents more control over what is allowed on their computers -

What makes this website blocking software stand out from competitors, however, are the features designed for the rest of the family. There are settings to control the amount of time spent on the Internet which can help prevent online gambling addictions and compulsive shopping. Websites can be filtered or blocked altogether. Responsible Surfing also contains privacy protection software to keep personal information safe from hackers and is the only parental control software that offers all of these options in one programme.
