Keep Children Safe Online

With ESET Parental Control for Android, you can keep your children safe while they are online.

The ability to protect kids online is more important today than ever before. With children of all ages using smartphones and tablets for both education and leisure purposes, you need the best parental control app available. ESET provides you with all the tools you need to monitor your children in a non-intrusive way and to make sure they are safe at all times.

Monitor Activity and Limit Screen Time

One of the hardest tasks faced by parents today is that of working out how to manage kid’s screen time. This has become especially difficult with the rapid increase in online learning activities but with the help of our advanced parental control software, you can easily make sure your children don’t spend too much time on their phones. With the Application Guard, you can set daily limits for the usage of specific apps, ensuring that your children are still able to participate in online classrooms but cannot spend all day playing games. This functionality makes ESET Parental Control one of the best apps to limit screen time currently available.

Control Inappropriate Web Content

Using Web Guard, you can configure profiles for each child in your household, setting specific content rules according to their age or any other factors you may wish to take into consideration. With more than 35 separate content categories from which to choose, you have a fine level of control over what type of websites your children are able to access from their mobile devices. The rules that you create with our Android parental control app can be applied to multiple devices so it won’t matter which phone or tablet your children are using, they will always be protected. All the Android phone and Samsung tablet parental controls you need can be accessed and configured from one handy app.

Locate Your Kid’s Phone with Geotracking

Child Locator with advanced geofencing functionality makes it easy for parents to know exactly where their children are at any time and sends alerts if they should stray outside of agreed zones. You can set up virtual boundaries around your home, your children’s schools, their friends’ homes, local play areas or any other location. Wherever they go, you can ensure that they stay where they are supposed to be when you track your kid’s phone with Child Locator.

Parental Control App FAQ

How does ESET Parental Control work?

Our paid and free parental control apps use a variety of features to ensure online safety for kids of all ages. Web Guard can monitor and filter websites, App Guard can limit access to various applications, with time limits on each one, and features such as Safe Search for kids help to stop your children from stumbling across inappropriate content by accident. Geofencing and monitoring services use the GPS chips in your kids’ phones to help you keep track of where they are, providing not just online but physical security too.

How does Parental Control help protect my kid online?

With ESET Parental Control, you have the best parental control app for Android. The app will block adult websites online and it can also block sensitive content online that may not fall specifically into the category of adult content: you get to choose what type of websites your children can see. With the advanced configuration features we provide, ESET Parental Control really is the best way to keep kids safe online. With the ability to set budget limits for spending, you can also ensure your children don’t overspend on apps and the optional functionality they provide for a fee.

What devices does ESET Parental Control work on?

ESET Parental Control for Android will work on any device that is running Android 4.0 or higher. It is designed to function flawlessly on all makes and models of smartphone and tablet that use the Android OS while using very few resources in the process. It won't slow your children's phones down or spoil their enjoyment of the functionality their devices have to offer; it will simply enable you to protect your kids with the latest digital wellbeing and parental controls.

How does ESET Parental Control for Android encourage healthy phone use?

There are many features in our parental control software that are designed to encourage healthy phone use among children but perhaps the most important is the App Guard. Because it allows you to set permissions and time limits for the use of individual apps, you can stop your children from overindulging in some online activities at the same time as encouraging them to pursue healthier and more constructive activities with their phones. You could, for example, limit their time with a specific game to one hour a day, while giving them unlimited access to an educational resource such as an interactive online encyclopaedia.
