A Safer Internet Is Our Top Priority

If looking at our Internet protection website for families in Australia has made you more aware for the need to protect you and your family – then we have achieved a great thing! If you decide not to go with our recommendations relating to children on the Internet and choose something else – then allow us to recommend some web filtering systems that we have found to be good.

X3 Watch is a great accountability software program that helps with online integrity. It works on both PC and MAC platforms. For iphones / ipod / ipads, one needs to use a different piece of software and one also needs to use a different web browser other than safari. This can work well but does take a little getting used to when one is sharing sites etc. This is great if you are up for being open and involved in someone else’s online life – a very helpful way forward. Again – a piece of SOFTWARE, that needs to be bought / installed for every piece of technology! www.x3watch.com
