Need for Parental Control
In the last decade, sex was the most searched word on Internet. Couple this with the millions of porn sites on the web and we have a situation where a user cannot get away from being exposed to this content. With web-based networking sites becoming popular, children are on the web most of the time. This is a difficult situation for the parents as they don’t want their child to access objectionable content at such a young age. Also, some seemingly harmless sites could be carrying malware which could infect the computer.
Key features of OMNIQUAD Surfwall Home
OMNIQUAD Surfwall Home blocks access to adult/pornographic websites. It is a set-and-forget solution for home or small office. It automatically blocks all adult websites listed on OMNIQUAD master server online, one of the largest database classifications which is constantly updated by OMNIQUAD. It has customizable keyword filtering to search in website name, URL and webpage content and manually allow access to specific websites. It is password protected to prevent tampering of Internet rules by users. If some site you visit is not in the database, it will be marked for categorization if its name includes suspicious keywords. Therefore, even if some adult site is not blocked by OMNIQUAD Surfwall Home (for example if the site just went live), normally correct classification will be made for it within 24 hours and the site will be blocked.
