F-Secure Declares That ‘Parental Control’ Is Dead

F-Secure’s flagship products now enable parents to set boundaries online the way they do in the real world.

F-Secure now offers protection for the whole family with the latest version of its flagship products SAFE and TOTAL.

The new Family Rules feature available in both products help families stay safe online by moderating harmful content and setting limits on screen time from any device in a way that encourages exploration and productive device use.

F-Secure SAFE provides comprehensive antivirus and Internet Security for all devices while F-Secure TOTAL offers the same award-winning protection along with F-Secure’s world-renowned FREEDOME VPN, which maintains privacy online while providing access to geo-blocked websites and services.

F-Secure Vice-President of Direct Consumer Sales & Marketing. “Family Rules helps parents manage limits, filter content and locate their kids’ devices remotely, allowing them to parent their children online from wherever they are.”

Research finds that by the age of two, most children use a digital device on a daily basis* and as many as 94 percent of parents allow unsupervised use of the Internet at the age of eight.

“By establishing boundaries for kids to explore within limits, TOTAL and SAFE allow parents to lead their children online, encouraging positive online behaviour without hovering over their shoulders,” says Sean Sullivan, F-Secure Security Advisor. “For kids born into the world of Snapchat and the Internet of Things, simple concepts like just blocking ‘bad’ content don’t work. They need to learn how to responsibly enjoy freedom within guidelines.

The Family Rules feature is designed to be accessed by parents from any device anywhere, at any time offering the ability to adjust the settings so internet use doesn’t get in the way of homework.
