CocoonKids for KlaasKids Safe Internet Browsing #Review

I have been compensated to provide an honest review for CocoonKids for KlaasKids.

It’s been said before that we are a very tech focused household. With mulitple laptops, smartphones, iPods, tablets and gaming systems in the house it’s definite that at least 1 person is plugged in at any given moment. Being a blogger you can imagine the amount of clicking around the internet that I do for reading, researching and browsing. That’s just the way it is for us.

The kids though don’t have as many reasons to be browsing the internet willy nilly. We’ve used different software and USB tools to monitor the kid’s web usage but over time it seems to become more of a irritant than anything else.

CocoonKids for KlaasKids is a different approach to safe internet access for kids since studies show 90% of children age 5-8 have access to a computer. In 1998 The Children’s Online Privacy Protection was drafted to protect kids online privacy. But since then the invention and explosion of technology with smartphones, WI-Fi, social media networks and mobile accessibility has made our children more susceptible to predators of a digital kind.

Simply doing a history search of the visited sites on your computer for that day puts you a step behind any activity that your children may have been involved in. Stop the potentially harmful activity before it can even happen with the Coocoonkids for KlaasKids toolbar.

A quick free toolbar download creates a safe internet browsing space for your kids. With preselected approved sites by you at their fingertips you never have to worry about them accidently clicking read more links or flashing blinking lights. Their space will be populated with the websites, blogs and activity sites you know are safe.

Using the already approved White List is a great starting point especially for littler ones. ABCMouse.com, Disney.com and StarFall.com are some of our daughter’s favorites. Clicking on a link that will take your child outside of the approved site will show them this.

Password needed for KlaasKids

This requires a password, your password when signing up. That password will allow access to THAT page just that time. It does not automatically add it to your approved sites. Clicking through that temporary site doesn’t work to access other sites. Each subsequent unapproved site click requires a password. Kids can’t bypass the installed toolbar without a password.

F-Secure Internet Security 2011 Review and Giveaway

The internet is a scary place especially if you have kids that are on the computer so it is important to have good internet security.  Shaun and Shae LOVE to play on the computer so thankfully we got an opportunity to review F-Secure Internet Security 2011.

F-Secure Internet Security 2011 is a fast and easy-to-use software that keeps viruses, worms, spyware, and harmful Internet sites away from your computer. You can explore the wonders of the web without a worry. Keep viruses, identity thieves and hackers away and enjoy the surf.

Some of the key features that F-Secure Internet Security 2011 offers that I thought were pretty cool was the new Browsing Protection feature that tells you which websites are safe to enter and which you should avoid. Harmful sites are blocked automatically to ensure safe surfing while renewed Parental Control keeps children safe from inappropriate web content you which websites are safe to enter and which you should avoid.

I found F-Secure Internet Security 2011 pretty easy to install and to set up.  There is an parental control option where you are able to set up parameters for young kids as well as teens in regards to what sites are appropriate but after spending about 30 minutes playing with it with no success I disabled the feature.  I haven’t gone back since the initial setup to look at the option but plan on it since we just got Sabreena her own laptop for Christmas.

For those of you who are techy like meself below are some system requirements needed in order to run F-Secure Internet Security 2011 effectively:

Supported Platforms

Windows 7 (all editions)
Windows Vista (64-bit, 32-bit)
