Safe Eyes for Mac users


safeeyes.jpgGranted, Safe Eyes is no gadget but I still think it will come in handy for parents who want to make sure that they have done their level best in preventing their kids from all the various dangers and pitfalls of the Internet such as pornography and unsolicited e-mail from strangers. Safe Eyes has made its way to the Mac, offering special enhancements for Mac users. Some of the features include :-

  • At-a-Glance Reports — See which websites and pages children have visited, which blocked sites they have tried to access, and which programs they have used with a new easy-use viewer.
  • Mac-Style User Interface — A new Mac look and feel simplifies use for Mac owners. If you have PCs in the house, you can download the Windows version at no extra cost.
  • Leopard OS Support — Safe Eyes for Mac now works on OS X Tiger 10.4, Leopard 10.5 or later.

    Talk about waste of money… All these types of programs to “prevent” children from accessing adult sites or chatrooms to talk with anyone are a pure waste of money because kids will be kids and still find new ways to find what they want, and if they can’t find it, they probably know another friend who can hack into it and get them what they want. The ONLY safe eyes is called being a parent and just sit right there in the same room with your kid and trust me he/she will not try anything “funny” while your in the room. Of course if parents taught their children about sex and what’s good and waht’s bad and trust their kids, there is no need to worry so much if your kids are level headed. But if you simply want to make sure where they like to surf, leave them alone with the computer with no safe eyes or any type of program and let them surf their hearts content and this way you see what your kids are really like or interested in by later cheking to see where they surfed too or chatted with. Kids are all the same growing up, why take that curiosity away from them, least if their checking out adult sites you know puberty hit and unless your boy is looking at gay porn, then don’t worry but if your child is looking at same sex porn- be worry, very worried LOL! Or such sites about killing or terrorism but if it’s just teen year curiosity about the other sex- geez it over it, you looked at magazines when you was growing up and now we have computers so don’t be jealous.

    One other note on this program, pure waste of time and money like buying anti-virus software- they don’t truly work.

    It is a good effort, but super easy to evade. The only comprehensive blocking it has is for sites that actually call themselves adult/porn sites. The coverage is spotty at best when it comes to buying things online or surfing artist galleries/reference photos. Good idea, nice effort, but it isn’t enough on its own.
