Parental control tools

Parents should be aware of possibilities and threats brought by the Internet and discuss it with children.

In addition to that, there are software solutions protecting children/teenagers from online threats (e.g. pornography, violence, self-harm, illicit act incitement, sexting, cyberbullying, pedophilia, etc.). These tools are known as parental control tools.


About SIP-Bench

The European Commission has been successful in placing the issues of developing a safer internet firmly on the agenda of the EU and the Member States since 1996, through the successive Safer Internet programmes.

The study aimed at providing guidance to parents and child carers, in particular to improve awareness of solutions and promoting best practices.
